WWE NXT brought a surprise on this week’s edition of WWE Raw. None other than the female champion of the brand was present on the show. She did not make an appearance on the taped edition of course. But the locker room felt her presence who sent a straight message to the women’s locker room.
Shayna Baszler is the name concerned who was present on the flagship show, this week. WWE’s Youtube channel released a video featuring her presence. She was not going to give a quiet presence, for sure. Being the WWE NXT women’s champion she did not back down to give a threat to lack of competitions in NXT.
We need to remind you that WWE Raw took place this week at Sioux Falls, South Dakota. This is the hometown of Shayna Baszler. So this could be the prime reason for her sudden show-up at the second last flagship show episode prior to the Extreme Rules PPV event.
Mike Rome conducted an interview with the title-holder. He asked her about the reason behind her presence. In reply, Baszler did not feel it necessary to give a proper reason to it. The hometown was a significant reason for her. But then again she felt that there was lack of competition at WWE NXT. So, maybe she was scouting new opponents in a completely different locker room.
Check out her comments on the WWE.com video,
“Well, as you said I’m the NXT Women’s Champion, so what’s it to ya? I don’t know. Maybe I’m tired of beating up the same people and scoping up some different competition. Maybe I have a friend who can’t be here for 30 days that needs eyes. I don’t know. The point is I’m the NXT Women’s Champion and I don’t need to explain myself to you or anybody.”
As you can see, Baszler did mention the suspension of Ronda Rousey. If that would not be the case then she could have a reunion with her former UFC colleague. These two are the half of the so-called UFC Four Horsewomen faction. (featuring Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir, Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey)
Baszler defended her title successfully at the WWE NXT Takeover: Chicago II event on June 17th. Nikki Cross was her opponent whom she defeated with quite an ease. Her next title defense will happen during the Summerslam weekend.
