Asuka def. Mandy Rose
Mandy Rose faced The Empress Asuka this week on Smackdown Live with an impressive showing. Smackdown Women’s Champion Carmella was on commentary.
Mandy made her entrance with some new stage graphics, and a unique custom nameplate. During Asuka’s entrance, she was blindsided by Sonya Deville, Mandy was taunting Asuka, and telling her to get into the ring. Asuka looking beaten up, argued with the referee telling him she was able to compete.

The bell rings and Mandy picks up Asuka and places her in the corner, and Asuka meets a flurry of forearm smashes, followed by a flurry of kicks to the midsection. Asuka attempts to retaliate, but Rose is able to get the upper hand and shuts Asuka’s attempt down.

Mandy goes for the cover and gets a two count. Rose then locks Asuka in a cross armed crossface, with her knee in the back of Asuka. Asuka starts to fight out of it, but Rose gives Asuka a knee to the mid section, before whipping her into the corner. As the Empress bumps off the turnbuckle pad, she’s met with a dropkick from Mandy. Mandy then does her seductive crawl, laughing at Asuka before she gets up, and delivers her signature Bicyle Knee strike, attempts to put away the Empress, and achieves a two count. Rose taunts the audience,before the match cuts to commercial.

After returning from commercial, Asuka has Rose in her grip, the competitors start to exchange forearm blows, and Asuka gets the better of Mandy and delivers the Empress Combination of kicks and strikes, before she delivers a devastating knee strike to Mandy’s skull, followed by a slap, and then Asuka’s signature sliding kick.
