Reason for Asuka's renewed push; Legend defends WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 12/08/2018 at 04:36 PM
- According to a report on Fightful.com, part of the reason for Asuka's renewed push was due to the positive reaction she got from fans on the night that Becky Lynch announced that she was off the Survivor Series PPV. One source indicated that Vince McMahon was caught off guard by the fact that Asuka got a bigger reaction than Charlotte when Becky was selecting her replacement for the Survivor Series match with Ronda Rousey.
- WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter is the latest persona to publicly support WWE's decision to run the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia as scheduled. Here is what Slaughter said:
“We’re an entertainment company. We’re not anything to do with politics, and we’re basically there to entertain everybody. Not only just the American people, but people all over the world. That’s what we do for a living, and that’s what makes our company so great.”
