Shayna Baszler Signing Made Official By WWE

Shayna Baszler made it all the way to the finals of the Mae Young Classic, but unfortunately for Baszler she was defeated by Kairi Sane.

Rousey dropped a firm hint she could be set to cross over to wrestling last month when she and fellow ex-MMA competitors Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke, were confronted by WWE stalwarts Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley after a taping of the Mae Young Classic.

In case you didn't know.


Baszler has always been a professional wrestling fan, often times appearing at shows alongside her friend, Ronda Rousey.

Baszler, 37, has been focused on professional wrestling for the past few years after putting her MMA career on hold, although she did take a fight earlier this year in Japan. A Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu specialist, Baszler is thought to be the only female catch wrestler in the United States of America, so a transition into the pro graps world was somewhat inevitable after her second UFC loss in 2015.

Baszler has already worked with several of the top women in WWE and now she'll look to forge her own path as she joins the promotion with hopes of becoming a future superstar.

An angle between the two sides was shot over the summer backstage at the Mae Young Classic.

The news was revealed in an article on, with it noting that Baszler has begun training at the Performance Center. "I am excited to have the conversation with her and see where it goes".

In WWE's official announcement Baszler described professional wrestling as "the next step" in her progression as a combat athlete.

Whilst "The Queen of Spades" has only just reported for duty at the WWE Performance Center, something tells me she may well find herself on NXT sooner rather than later.
