Report: Asuka's WWE Push Won't Be Affected By Bruce Prichard Replacing Paul Heyman On Raw
The Empress Of Tomorrow is staying on top...
Back on June 11, WWE announced Paul Heyman had been replaced as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw by Bruce Prichard. The news shocked both fans and WWE Superstars as Heyman was seemingly in for the long haul as he was building new stars on the red brand.
Vince McMahon reportedly lost faith in Heyman once ratings started to decline, however, and the boss didn't think the Superstars Heyman was pushing were getting over with the audience at home. Reports have also noted that upheaval is expected on Monday nights and McMahon will curtail some stars' pushes in favour of reintroducing older wrestlers like The Big Show.
One Superstar who won't have to worry is Raw Women's Champion Asuka as Louis Dangoor at WrestleTalk reported Vince is still a big fan of The Empress Of Tomorrow and sees her as a top star in the women's division along with the likes of Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax. Dangoor also noted McMahon changed the finish to the Raw Women's Championship match at Backlash to protect Jax as opposed to trying to weaken Asuka.
