WWE Backlash 2020 did not give us the expected results. We wanted to see a remarkable beginning of Asuka’s Raw Women’s Championship but quite unfortunately, that didn't happen.
“The Empress of Tomorrow” was declared the champion but did not exactly win against Nia Jax. Their title match was decided after a long and exhausting method of double count-out. This is proof of how WWE should never place two star wrestlers against each other because then, the creative team doesn’t want to see any side lose.
After Becky Lynch took an indefinite leave from the WWE due to her pregnancy, Asuka quickly turned into a babyface singles star instead of a heel tag team performer. WWE picked her as the “replacement” for “The Man” because according to reports, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is a huge fan of hers.
So after years of struggle, Asuka is now a Raw, SmackDown and NXT Women’s Champion, Women’s Tag Team Champion, a Money in the Bank winner, and a Royal Rumble winner.
We can see that she is the rightful heir to Lynch but that should have resulted in her clean victory over Nia Jax. However, WWE did not want to favor one star over the other so they ended up taking a very useless decision that declared both of them to be winners.
Right now, the views of WWE are not as high as they used to be because of the pandemic. The matches are also being conducted in an audience-less setting so it is better if they come up with new plots instead of dragging the feud between Jax and Asuka.
