Asuka quickly became one of the most popular new additions to WWE's pro wrestling roster over the last few years, and she seems to be quite the fan of Street Fighter as well.

The Japanese star, whose real name is Kanako Urai, appears to be following in the footsteps of Xavier Woods, as Asuka has been sharing images of her expansive video game collection and PC gaming setup leading up to the launch of her KanaChan TV YouTube channel.

In the process of sharing her in-progress builds of her PC desk space, Asuka posted a selfie to her Twitter account posing with a Blanka-chan doll with the world warrior also appearing on one of her monitor wallpapers behind her.

Rainbow Mika seems like she might be the real wrestler's favorite world warrior in Street Fighter 5 posting some screenshots of her win screen with Nadeshiko and what looks to be art of the two strong ladies together.

Back in July, Asuka also posted an image visiting Capcom's headquarters in Japan holding a limited edition Street Fighter anniversary collectible that she later asked SF5's director, Takayuki Nakayama, if he could sign it for her — to which he replied that he'd love to.

Currently Asuka's channel only features one video of Super Mario Maker 2 gameplay, but there's likely going to be some fighting game content coming in the future given how much she talks about Street Fighter. Maybe she could be the next one to challenge Xavier Woods and Kenny Omega to a set.

Oh and Nakayama also turned the wrestler into her own version of the Blanka meme as Asuka-chan.
