Both Asuka and Kairi Sane are former NXT Women’s champions, with Asuka being the most dominant NXT Champion in the history of the brand. Asuka was not only undefeated in her reign as champion, also holds the longest undefeated streak in WWE history at 914 days.
The Kabuki Warriors won the Tag Team titles earlier this month when they defeated Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss. This will be the first match for both Kairi and Asuka in NXT since their departures.
