WWE Women’s Champion Asuka currently has two high profile names coming after her title on SmackDown, but fellow superstar Zelina Vega may be waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike.

Asuka defeated Bianca Belair at Night of Champions to win the former RAW Women’s Championship. EST’s reign lasted for 420 days, but it finally came to an end at the premium live event in Saudi Arabia. Last Friday on SmackDown, WWE official Adam Pearce promised Belair a rematch against the Empress of Tomorrow if she didn’t spoil the title show.

Belair obliged, but Charlotte Flair took her back and vowed to capture Asuka’s title. Adam Pearce then gave Flair a future title shot, and Bianca took to social media to note how ridiculous it was. However, if Asuka can get past Charlotte and Belair, the 32-year-old superstar may be looking forward to another title match.

Zelina Vega qualified for the Money in the Bank ladder match by defeating Lacey Evans on the June 2 episode of SmackDown. She had the biggest match of her career at Backlash against Rhea Ripley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship but came up short. However, she can use the motivation from her loss to Ripley to win the title from Asuka.
