Asuka and Cesaro Not Competing at WWE Tapings This Week

Asuka and Cesaro Not Competing at WWE Tapings This Week
Add Asuka and Cesaro to the list of wrestlers currently "out of action" and not competing at WWE Tapings this week, according to Wrestling Inc.

It is not known if they are being held out of action due to their general health or if they have decided not to compete amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Neither wrestler was officially announced for a WrestleMania 36 match though Asuka was rumored to be wrestling in some sort of women's tag team match, at first expected to be a triple threat match with partner Kairi Sane against Natalya & Beth Phoenix as well as Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and then simply a straight up tag match against Bliss & Cross.

If this report is true and Asuka is truly wrestling, that match obviously never took place (matches for WrestleMania 36 were already taped on Wednesday and Thursday of this week).

Here is the current list of wrestlers that have either been pulled or have chosen not to travel or wrestle due to the pandemic.

Roman Reigns
Rey Mysterio
Dana Brooke
The Miz
Jerry Lawler
