Undefeated NXT Women’s Champion Asuka’s title reign officially came to an end near the end of August, and on Monday, WWE confirmed Asuka is coming to Monday Night Raw.

After a 500-plus days, the “Empress of Tomorrow” relinquished her title during an NXT taping at Full Sail University.

Although she is expected to miss 6-8 weeks recovering from collar bone surgery, Asuka’s historic reign was cut short due to her pursuit of new challenges in WWE and reportedly hinted at a jump to the main roster in the near future.

Asuka held the NXT Women’s Championship for 510 days, which will officially be recognized as 523 days since Thursday night’s taped episode will air 13 days after she dropped the title. The Japanese superstar has never lost a singles match in WWE dating back to her debut in October 2015.
