Asuka & Nia Jax’s Feud
Asuka is currently feuding with Nia Jax and will face her in the title match at WWE Backlash 2020 PPV. The feud started during the build-up of Money in the Bank PPV where Jax defeated Asuka’s tag team partner Kairi Sane in a singles match. Two weeks back, Nia interrupted Asuka’s championship win celebration and later attacked Kairi Sane backstage. As mentioned above, Nia then won the #1 contenders match to book the title match.
