Despite Being a Badass, NXT’s Asuka has the Most Adorable Instagram

Asuka heads to the ring in her entrance robe smiling a devilish grin

asuka_profile1Asuka, previously known as Kana in Japan, demands respect whenever she steps into the squared circle. One of the most accomplished wrestlers ever to be part of NXT’s women’s division she has been their champion since April 1st, 2016. On a recent episode after decimating Liv Morgan in mere seconds she was asked who is ready to face her to which she replied “NO ONE IS READY FOR ASKUA!” It’s hard to disagree and it’s also easy to see her dominating on the main roster in similar fashion, she is after all a veteran of the ring who has been wrestling over 12 years all over the world.


However, those who follow Asuka on social media will certainly get some images of her showing off her trademark intensity but you will also find possibly the most adorable Instagram in the world. Whether she’s hanging out with fellow wrestlers:

It’s plain to see this is a gifted athlete with a good nature who is really enjoying her time in WWE. Plus she just manages to be totally adorable when she’s doing it, like finding common ground with Ember Moon (Athena)

Oh my…

Or maybe she isn’t happy, this video makes me picture her with a stick and bindle running away having jumped onto an empty carriage on a train. Come back Asuka!

It’s easy to admire Askua for her amazing in-ring skills but it is one of the blessings of social media is seeing a more candid version of these people we fan-person over. We wish her nothing but the very best in her wrestling career, and also that she keeps on lighting up social media with her presence.
