Shayna Baszler is one of the top superstars in NXT right now. Shayna held the NXT Women’s Title a few months ago. Even though she lost her title, she still has plenty of fans that want to see her on top of the world. Shayna is also a former MMA fighter.
In fact, she is a legitimate Catch Wrestler. That is one of the reasons why she is extremely good at pulling off complex wrestling moves quite easily. Since she is a former MMA fighter, she is very good friends with Ronda Rousey.
WWE never used her friendship with Ronda as an angle at any stage though. Shayna was always given her own identity in the company and didn’t need to share the spotlight with anyone. "I am glad that it's not something that WWE has like forced down people's throats," Baszler said of her friendship with Rousey on The New York Post.
"I'm not afraid. It's not that I want to hide the fact that Ronda's my friend. I don't. But at the same time, I busted my ass just as hard as anyone else to do this, so I'm glad that people can see it."
Shayna has performed on the WWE main roster a few times, but she is still not a full-time main roster wrestler. She will undoubtedly find her way on to the main roster one day though.
