Apart from being a wrestler, The Empress of Tomorrow is a graphic designer and worked as a full-time graphic designer before her wrestling career. She has designed various graphics for various mobile applications and owns a hair salon named Another Heaven. There isn’t much information available regarding Asuka’s personal life; however, some sources state that she is the wife of a man named Jadarius McKenzie, while others assert that she is married to Daisuke Ura.

The Damage CTRL member wrestled around the Japanese independent circuit and the American independent circuit from 2010 to 2015. She also wrestled for promotions such as Smash, Wrestling New Classic, and Reina Joshi Puroresu before joining WWE in 2015. The Empress of Tomorrow joined WWE in 2015 and became the NXT Women’s Champion in 2016, with her reign being the longest in NXT history.

Asuka moved to the main roster in 2017, and her first feud was with her old rival Emma. Her breakout performance was when she won the first ever women’s Royal Rumble in 2018. She lost for the first time in WWE at WrestleMania 34, but the failure didn’t affect her career. Since being on the main roster, The Empress has managed to become a three-time Women’s World Champion, a one-time WWE Women’s Champion, and a four-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion.

Asuka is a working mother

Becky Lynch forfeited her RAW Women’s Championship prior to the MITB PLE in 2020 because she was going on maternity leave. Asuka won the MITB contract, and the following night on RAW, Lynch gave the good news to The Empress. The Empress of Tomorrow was genuinely filled with happiness and joy after hearing that Lynch was going to be a mother.

Lynch had one more surprise for her former rival, which was the RAW Women’s Championship in the briefcase. This meant that Asuka had not won the MITB contract but rather The Man’s championship.

In a 2020 interview with Sports Illustrated, Lynch said that handing Asuka the RAW Women’s Championship meant a lot since Asuka deserved it so much. Big Time Becks further added that Asuka is a dedicated mother who has shown that it is possible to be a powerhouse and have a family.

She really, really deserves it. And another element that people missed, because it’s not really advertised, is that she’s a working mom. She's proven that you can do it all. You can be a badass and go off and have a family, you can come in and still kick more ass, have a YouTube show and be entertaining as all hell.

The veteran held the title for 76 days before losing to Sasha Banks on RAW in July 2020. This was her first reign as the RAW Women’s Champion. She recaptured the championship by defeating Banks at SummerSlam 2020. This was the beginning of her second reign, which lasted for 231 days before she was defeated by Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 37.
