Asuka means a lot to the women's division.
She was undefeated in NXT, champ for 500+ days, and now undefeated on the main roster. Because she didn't win in under a minute, showed she can sell and tell a story, and isn't a female Braun/Goldberg she means nothing now?

When you write television based on the whims of a crazy 70-year-old man things won't make sense. [/quote]
I don't agree that Asuka means nothing but I completely agree with your last statement.
I've been watching wrestling for 27 years to be precise and I've put up with flimsy storylines for so long that I'm numb to it now.
So many of my friends have stopped watching but I've stuck with it. I wouldn't put up with the ridiculous stuff with any other tv show but I do with wrestling for some reason. I dare not miss a Raw, SD any PPV because I know that'll be the time that something great happens.
Let's just face it, we're all hooked on this weird little world for better or worse!
Don't be surprised to find yourself forgetting to remember...

Do you guys remember when Asuka made her NXT takeover debut? i know the guys from the law don'T remember but i do. They did the exact match at that event with Emma getting a lot of the offense and back then Emma was being booked pretty much the same way she is now yet nobody really said anything about it because in the end the right person won.
Another question, When did Asuka was booked to be a monster? Every big matches i saw of where 20 plus minutes where her opponent got most of the offense and Asuka found a way to get her comeback in and win the match. She never was booked as a monster character that went through everybody quickly. She always was booked as a determine character that was hard to beat which is a big difference. I think her match with Emma serve it's purpose in the fact that you did go 20 plus minutes of Emma just trying her best to beat her only to for asuka to find a way and beat Emma like a lot of her matches on NXT were but you got a quick match that pretty much introduce Asuka to the main roster the same way they did when they wanted to introduce her to the NXT crowd when she started.
i think we as fans that listen the Shows like The Law seem to Forget that Not everybody followed NXT and no the history of the character. For them it's a all new character and the best to introduce a new character is not really to continue were you left off in NXT but from the very beginning and that'S what they did with her, They pretty much gave her the same PPV debut match she had in NXT but on a bigger stage and i'm fine with it because it showed how determine Asuka is and didn'T hurt Emma which has a lot of potential as a mid level Heel and they are finally getting behind.
I wouldn'T have said the same think if it was Alicia Fox or Dana Brooke in that role instead of Emma because i think if you wanted to truly book her as a monster and have a squash match for her debut match, those 2 are the one you use. But Emma gave her a really strong match that help Asuka get establish as the one to beat. Also i don't think that Agnews and fans like him would have hated her debut has much if she face Bailey or Sasha Banks instead of Emma.
There is a big difference between NXT and the main roster that Sami Zayn pointed out : the crowd in NXT know they are helping to build characters, the crowd in the main roster are expecting to see a "finished product".
