In my opinion, if they didn't want to have to build a match for Asuka then they could've easily kept the title on her and had her compete in the Women's battle royal. The best part of her being in the battle royal would be that it could be used to create her first post Wrestlemania feud with someone eliminating her from the match. This does however prove that not only is the company struggling booking certain talents, but also the fact that it seems like they didn't have a long term plan going into this years event.
Though at this point it seems like the company will have a plan set in place for next years Mania following this years event which is something that should happen every year. Fact is long term booking does work and it helps make certain feud seem more organic or like they are meant to be happening and not forced. Looking at this years card it is clear that some of these matches seem like they are to thrown together which prevents fans in my opinion from getting excited about every match on the show. This doesn't always happen at Wrestlemania which is an issue, because most of the card is suppose to be worth watching and not something you feel like you can see on any of the normal programming. Either way though we are almost there and let's see what happens in the next couple of weeks.
