Despite battling a knee injury, former Women’s Tag Team Champion Asuka competed at Backlash France, facing a loss. In her vlog “See You Again,” she thanked partners Kairi Sane and Dakota Kai for their support during her painful phase.

“After the Backlash of my European tour, I had to take a break to treat my hurting knee. Kairi and Dakota were my pillars,” Asuka shared. The 42-year-old superstar struggled but found solace in her Damage CTRL teammates.

Having missed events due to knee troubles in March, Asuka, alongside Kairi Sane, lost the Women’s Tag Team Championship in France. Despite this setback, Asuka was set for the Queen of the Ring tournament but was later replaced by Dakota Kai due to her knee woes.
