When it comes to positions for the men’s roster in WWE, there’s no denying that Roman Reigns is at the top. However, the classification of women in the company is not quite strict. According to WWE producer Brian James, AKA Road Dogg, on The latest is “Oh… You Don’t Know,” There is at least one woman who can play the role of Roman ruler, albeit for the women’s division.
“As far as presentation, in-ring skills, dare I say promotion skills … I think [Asuka] Maybe Roman Reigns should be in women’s wrestling at this point,” James said. “I know the big argument is, ‘Well, she can’t cut a promotion domestically.’ I think as a culture, as a society, we’re past that.”
James suggests using subtitles for Asuka’s promo, or letting her continue what she’s been doing of late, where she speaks in Japanese and we don’t actually need to understand what she says. The former D-Generation X member praised Asuka’s ability to put together a match and maintain her character while being selfless and selling for her opponents.
Asuka is currently on some sort of hiatus from the company, as last seen December 12 edition of “WWE Raw.” Since then, former world champion Dr Teasing to go abroad, apparently some quest. It seems that he will eventually return to WWE television, but it remains to be seen if he will return in the same way or with a new character.
James listed Joey Stark as one of the female roster members that stood out to him, calling her one of the best he’s ever seen. Stark recently competed in dark matches for the main roster and was seen Backstage at “Raw.” This past week.
