Asuka Loses a Tooth Following Brutal Kick on Raw

Asuka teamed with Charlotte Flair last night on Raw in a match against Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.

The Raw Women’s Champion was pinned by Jax following a boot from Charlotte, which was seemingly inadvertent, but Asuka was seemingly already out on her feet.

Nia Jax had The Empress of Tomorrow in an arm bar which meant that she was unable to defend herself when Baszler ran into the ring and delivered a stiff kick to her face.

Baszler immediately checked to make sure Asuka was OK, and it was later revealed on Raw Talk that the Champion had lost a tooth.

Despite the injury, Asuka was able to finish the match, but it was another loss to the Women’s Tag Team Champions, who had taken her Championship back at the Royal Rumble.

PWInsider went on to report that they had asked backstage and there was no update to confirm whether Asuka had been injured or not.

“Asuka was checked by WWE medical after returning backstage. We have not been able to confirm yet whether she was diagnosed with an injury.”

Wrestlers often lose teeth in the ring, Natalya has lost her teeth several times over the years, it’s one of the downfalls of being a professional wrestler.
