Asuka Comments on Kabuki Warriors Tag Team Name

Posted By James Walsh on 05/15/19


The Smackdown Live women’s tag team of Kairi Sane and Asuka were dubbed the Kabuki Warriors. Late yesterday, Asuka shared a tweet offering up some background behind the word Kabuki or “Kabukimono.” You can check out her tweet below.

Asuka wrote on the Kabuki Warriors, “Kabukimono 傾奇者 Sengoku or Edo-period eccentric who attracted public attention with their eye-catching clothes, peculiar hairstyle, and weird behavior.”

Paige also recently commented on the team name, saying they girls actually wanted “Kabuki” in the name. However, they originally wanted “Kabuki Girls,” which was changed to “Kabuki Warriors.” She wrote in response to the critics of the team name, “You know it was the girls who chose their name right? Well technically they wanted “kabuki girls” but it was changed to kabuki warriors. Chill.”
