During the April 25th 2022 edition of WWE RAW, Becky Lynch cut a promo about how she would make a comeback and regain the women’s title. Becky said nobody would stop her and then Asuka made her entrance. Asuka said she would stop Becky and nobody is ready for her. Asuka took a swing at Becky but Becky escaped to the outside of the ring.
This was Asuka’s first appearance on WWE television since the 2021 Money in the Bank PLE due to a shoulder injury.
