Asuka Returns To Action On WWE Raw

She missed several weeks with injury

After several weeks away with a reported concussion, Raw Women's champion Asuka returns to action tonight on WWE Raw, taking on Shayna Baszler.

Asuka apparently sustained the injury after being kicked in the head on the February 22 episode of Raw. The blow also knocked out one of Asuka's teeth.

WWE.com's write-up reads, "Raw Women’s Champion Asuka will be out for payback tonight when she returns to the ring for a clash with Shayna Baszler.

"Three weeks ago, a brutal kick from The Queen of Spades sent The Empress of Tomorrow’s teeth flying and has kept Asuka out of action since. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Baszler & Nia Jax have long targeted Asuka, but the Raw Women’s Champion seems certain to be fired up for a brawl against The Submission Magician.

"Will Asuka battle back against Baszler and make a statement as The Road to WrestleMania continues?"

Tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw includes:

* Asuka vs. Shayna Baszler

* WWE United States: Riddle (c) vs. Mustafa Ali

* Raw Tag Team: The Hurt Business (c) vs. The New Day

* An appaearance from WWE champion Bobby Lashley
