“I would never want to limit someone’s growth or their opportunities, but when Vince brought it up to me, I said the one person we can’t afford to lose is Asuka,” Levesque, WWE’s executive vice president for talent, live events and creative, told For the Win this week.
The Fabulous Moolah was WWF women’s champion seemingly for decades, although limited records exist on her specific reigns.
Asuka’s record does not include the championship reigns of Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Bob Backlund and Hulk Hogan, but those came before WWE’s national expansion and likely will never be toppled.
Levesque says he hears people question why an undefeated streak or long title run matters in an entertainment-driven company in which the results are predetermined.
Beyond her own Wrestling career, she was promoting shows with other female wrestlers and caught the eye of WWE’s worldwide recruiting efforts.
