WWE announced that NXT Women’s Champion Asuka suffered a broken collarbone at the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III event on Saturday. The WWE.com story notes that she is not medically cleared to compete and no timeline has been established for her return.
Powell’s POV: A big blow for the NXT brand. The story noted that recovery time is typically six to eight weeks. It will be interesting to see if they keep the NXT Women’s Championship on her or if they opt to play the 30-day card and crown a new champion. It’s worth noting that this is one way the company could take the title off her without ending her unbeaten streak.
