Former two-time NXT Women’s Champion, Shayna Baszler, discusses her plans with WWE since the recent split with her former tag team partner Nia Jax. The duo became WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions for the first time last year at WWE Payback, defeating Sasha Banks and Bayley. Jax was recently released from WWE, leaving Baszler as a singles competitor. With the split, Baszler seems to have her sights at the top of the mountain, taking anyone out along the way.
In a recent interview with SP3, Baszler opens up about her next moves in the ring. When asked if this was a new start for her, she said:
“I mean, I’ve been on Raw the whole time I’ve been here. I’m not in a tag team now. So, going over to SmackDown, there’s a new locker room, a whole crop of new talent, and on top of like things personally in my career. I’ve been in a tag team for a while, so it’s a good way to look at it that it’s a restart.”
She goes on to briefly discuss what is next for her on the main roster. She said,
“The title is always a goal for anyone that is in this business. But I want to, as we talked about, it’s a restart. So I want to reestablish that it’s a dangerous time to be in the ring with me. I hadn’t been on a tag team before. Now that I’m stepping away from that, so to speak, it’s a good time to remind people what I’m about. And maybe even some people that didn’t see my NXT run to even introduce them to what I’ve been about.”
She went on to discuss being allied with Sonya Deville and left a brief message to Rhea Ripley. Now, being recently drafted to the blue brand, Baszler seems to be waiting in line to push for her SmackDown’s Women’s Championship reign. As we approach Day 1 and Royal Rumble, the options are endless for the Queen of Spades.
