NXT made headlines with its signing of Asuka, a legend of Japanese women’s wrestling, in the fall. Her international acclaim — never mind her hard kicks and vicious submissions — intimidate some of the less experienced women at the Performance Center. Dana explains that Asuka’s signing has brought a lot of different thoughts to the Divas locker room and the Divas think she is going to make it before them. Dana, on the other hand, is inspired by Asuka’s presence, and sees it as a chance to prove herself because of the motivation she gives her. She mentions that her kicks are very hard and her arm submissions are badass but she doesn’t take it as a threat, she sees it as an opportunity. The two are seen training in the ring, Dana keeping up with all of Asuka’s strikes. But when a hard knockdown from Asuka sends Dana crumbling to the mat at the close of Breaking Ground, the mood changes drastically as Dana is teary eyed explaining the pain.
