To say Shayna Baszler is angry might be an understatement. The Queen of Spades was defeated — some might say upset — by Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch at WrestleMania in such a fashion that all Baszler could say during a post-match interview was “the thrill of victory” and “the agony of defeat.” And, in her first match since The Showcase of the Immortals, Baszler savaged Sarah Logan to earn her way into the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
It’s difficult to imagine that Baszler wasn’t thinking of Lynch, who ruthlessly mocked the two-time NXT Women’s Champion moments before Shayna took the ring. Shayna rained down blows on Logan’s head and stomped her elbow into such an unnatural angle that the ref called off the match. Baszler then stormed through the WWE Performance Center, clearly poised to once again feel the thrill of victory and hand everyone else a big helping of the other thing.
