What's the story?
Mae Young Classic finalist and former UFC fighter Shayna Baszler was backstage at last night's NXT tapings.
In case you didn't know...
Shayna Baszler is a decade-long UFC and MMA veteran. A member of the infamous Four Horsewomen of UFC, she transitioned to professional wrestling in 2015 with a professional MMA record of 15-11.
The heart of the matter
Shayna Baszler was backstage during last night's set of NXT tapings in Orlando, FL and even took photos with fans before the show.
Baslzer didn't work the tapings and there is no official word on if Baszler has officially signed with WWE. She has stopped taking independent bookings, which leads us to believe that she has probably signed with WWE or is on the verge.
Baszler seems to be on the cusp of signing with WWE and after an impressive outing at the Mae Young Classic, she seems to be set for big things in WWE.
If WWE end up pulling the trigger on the Four Horsewomen vs Four Horsewomen angle, she could end up on the main roster sooner rather than later.
I'm a big fan of Shayna Baszler. She has the look of a badass and she walks around the ring like she owns it. With a proper build, she could be a big star in the future.
