The build to Paige vs. Asuka begins...

The longest reigning champion in NXT history is currently extending her record-setting winning streak on television every Monday night.

A wrestler who’s held titles in NXT and on the main roster just returned to Raw and, with the aid of a couple allies, wiped out the entire Women’s title scene - including its current champion.

You’d figure Asuka and Paige have to be on a collision course. Did they started down that road in earnest on Twitter over the weekend?

Even as the sole survivor for the winning side in the battle for brand supremacy at last Sunday’s pay-per-view (PPV), The Empress of Tomorrow seems to be in a holding pattern. Was she waiting for Paige to arrive for her first big program?

We still don’t know what the angle is for The Diva of Tomorrow’s return and alliance with Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, but whatever their motivation, if they want to make a statement, taking out the woman who supplanted Goldberg atop the kayfabe history books would be a major one.

Is this exchange of tweets officially planting seeds for that showdown? Or just a bit of badass-sounding fun?

Maybe we’ll start to find out tonight.
