Shayna Baszler makes her NXT in-ring debut
Shayna Baszler will make her highly anticipated in-ring debut in NXT tonight, but she has already made her bullying presence felt on the black-and-yellow brand.
Baszler’s talent and potential to make an impact in NXT’s Women’s division is undeniable, but there are certainly concerns about her methods so far. The dominating grappler showed no remorse while battling her way to the Mae Young Classic Finals against The Pirate Princess, and that same merciless attitude already seems to be on display in NXT.
Baszler's presence has also been felt at the WWE Performance Center where she offered to "help" show WWE PC rookie Jessica Elaban how to put on a submission hold, only to refuse to let the distressed novice out of the move until Dakota Kai pulled her off. Then, just days later when Kai was being interviewed about facing Baszler tonight on NXT, cameras caught the bruising competitor once again applying a merciless chokehold on an unsuspecting Reina Gonzalez at the WWE PC. What type of unforgiving ruthlessness will we witness in Baszler’s NXT debut match?
Don’t miss Shayna Baszler in action inside an NXT ring for the first time tonight against the world-renowned Dakota Kai at 8/7 C on WWE Network.
