    Default Interesting Asuka Article

    So I came across this interesting article well browsing a comic book website (well primarily a comic book site, they do post wrestling news as well)...


    Goldberg is the holder of the most famous win streak in professional wrestling history.For more than a year, Goldberg didn't lose a single match in WCW. According to the company, his streak stretched to 173 wins and 0 losses before Starrcade 1998, when Kevin Nash snapped the streak with help from his NWO teammate Scott Hall.

    With Goldberg's recent return to the WWE spotlight, his win record has also been mentioned a lot on WWE TV. What the WWE has failed to mention and possibly even notice is that another current WWE superstar is about to break his legendary streak.

    NXT Women's Champion, Asuka, is the most dominant performer to ever come through WWE developmental. She broke Paige’s inaugural title reign of 308 days to become the longest reigning NXT Champion in history and is currently sitting at 149-0 losses.

    According to many, Goldberg’s historic “173 wins” without a loss in WCW was a little bit inflated. The actual number is reportedly 157 straight wins without a loss.

    However, a lot of people will still consider Goldberg’s record to be 173 wins without a loss. In that case, Asuka is only 25 matches from passing that mark as well, so it will be interesting to see if the WWE will keep her push going or even acknowledge that she is so close to the record.
    Anyway's do you guys think Asuka will eventually surpass Goldberg's record? If so, will the WWE acknowledge it?

    Also, to get some more discussion out of this thread, what has been your favorite Asuka match from her time in NXT?

    Is that including houseshow matches like Goldberg's was? Like... I can't fathom she's had that many televised matches. If NXT results mattered I suppose they could go streak vs. streak against Charlotte, although PPV only is far less impressive with her constant TV losses.

    I would assume it's counting NXT house shows as well, as Asuka hasn't had that many televised matches.

    If Goldberg wasn't on good terms with WWE then yeah she would break it.

    First, she's got a good month plus left before her probably loss at Dallas, just cause you'd imagine that's where the story is going. And that her call up should be soon, and unless they go Paige style, the usual NXT call up includes a loss to help elevate and push the next face of the division. She has a shot at doing it, but I doubt they'll be extending her title reign like with Nikki JUST to beat the record. so it really matters how many matches they give her.
