WWE superstar Kanako Urai, better known to fans as Asuka, has launched her very own gaming YouTube channel called KanaChanTV. While various superstars have hobbies and side-activities outside of the squared circle, one of Kanako’s favorite pastimes is… gaming.

That’s right… much like actor Terry Crews, Kanako has joined the glorious PC master race.
However, her very first video on YouTube is actually for… the Nintendo Switch.
Yes, she’s a Nintendonite at heart, which means she’s a thorough and true gamer. Much better than guzzling down Soylent while gaming on those other two systems.
Anyway, her first video is about Super Mario Maker 2. She selects a couple of stages to play and showcases her amazing timing and fingerwork in Nintendo’s platformer in a short six minute video that you can check out below.
She’s already garnered more than 16,000 subscribers after starting up the channel on September 2nd, 2019.
It wouldn’t take her long to catch up to or surpass fellow WWE superstar Xaviar Woods – who also runs a gaming channel called UpUpDownDown – since a large number of gamers love Japanese women and video games. Combining them together with Kana’s WWE superstar status and it’s like a recipe for success. Heck, the Japanese virtualtubers are also a smash hit, such as Kizunai AI and Siro, so Kanachan almost has no choice but to succeed.
Previously she appeared on Xavier Woods’ UpUpDownDown channel in the past, but this time around she’s providing her own commentary, both in English and in Japanese. This should prove to be quite popular among Westerners and Japanese gamers alike. Too bad she didn’t start up a channel on Bitchute, though. Given YouTube’s current antics if she says or does anything that isn’t entirely politically correct she can kiss her channel goodbye.
