WWE NXT News: Kana takes ring name of Hall of Famer

Recent signee Kana was at the WWE NXT TV tapings Thursday for her debut, and was given the new ring name "Asuka".

Lioness Asuka was probably the second most popular woman pro wrestler ever in Japan, part of the 80s tag team The Crush Gals during the era when women's pro wrestling did television ratings equivalent to what the NFL was doing at the same time in the United States.
