Asuka is still searching for her partner ahead of WWE TLC 2020 where she faces Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

Jax and Baszler are the WWE Women’s Tag Champions and are to defend their title against the Japanese star.

Initially, it was Asuka and Lana who were to face off against Jax and Baszler. However, the Russian was injured by Jax and Baszler and was ruled out of TLC 2020.

This left Asuka with a dilemma and she has been trying hard to find a partner. She has been offered services by several stars and has seven names on her list, including that of Dolph Ziggler.

While the Show Off might not feature alongside Asuka, she was also offered the chance to team up with Aliyah.

She is a member of The Robert Stone Brand, and hasn’t been spoken about for a long time. Aliyah also used a hilarious GIF to bring out how no one has brought her up and Jax was quick to say this would be a great move for the NXT star.

Easier to break than Lana?

A fan, however, claimed that Aliyah would be easier to break than Lana. Jax has targeted the Russian throughout her singles career, but she had some great words for Aliyah.

“No she’s not! @WWE_Aliyah is tougher than most women! She has endured more than anyone in any division could! And she continues to get back up, have a smile and does whatever is asked of her! In a battle, I would take @WWE_Aliyah over a lot of people! I admire her dearly”

Aliyah has been on NXT for most of her WWE career and she hasn’t been on the winning side ever since she was part of The Robert Stone Brand.

She has been made to be comic relief of sorts, and it will be interesting to see what is next for her.

As for Jax, she has to play the waiting game and see who Asuka picks as her partner. There should be a surprise waiting for the champions and they need to be ready for any possibility.
