A 42-year-old WWE Superstar may turn heel and join Damage CTRL on SmackDown. IYO SKY defended the WWE Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair at Crown Jewel. Bayley interfered during the match, but IYO still retained her title. Kairi Sane returned and attacked Belair, aligning herself with IYO SKY.
Damage CTRL seemed to be falling apart after IYO won the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match on July 1. If Bayley and Sane can unite, the group has the potential to become stronger. Sane has a history with Asuka, and the two were once known as The Kabuki Warriors. The addition of Sane and Asuka could make Damage CTRL a dominant force on SmackDown.
Wrestling legend Dutch Mantell praised Damage CTRL and Bayley as the group’s leader, saying he is excited to see how the storyline unfolds.
Asuka has not appeared on WWE SmackDown since teaming with Charlotte Flair to defeat Damage CTRL on the October 6 show. Her future with the faction remains uncertain, and fans are speculating on whether Damage CTRL will disband soon. The possibility of Kairi Sane and Asuka joining the faction has also generated interest among viewers.
The veteran wrestler’s role leading up to Survivor Series 2023 is unknown, leaving fans to ponder what WWE has in store for her. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
