Tonight on NXT (Dec 13th), a new teaser aired for MMA Horsewoman Shayna Baszler’s arrival to NXT.

The WWE previously announced that the Mae Young Classic runner-up had joined to the company back in October.

Tonight’s episode of NXT also served as the first to broadcast on the USA Network. Despite this special edition of NXT, this week’s non-title Women’s match of Emer Moon taking on Peyton Royce streamed on the WWE Network.

After a quick tie-up to start things off, Royce landed knee strikes to the midsection and whipped Moon to the ropes. A springboard off the second ropes allows for Moon to avoid a spinning kick from Royce and counter a head scissors takeover.

Royce slipped to the outside to regroup with Billie Kay but a top rope crossbody from Moon wiped out both members of the Iconic Duo. As Moon tossed Royce back in the ring, Kay provided a small distraction to allow Royce strike and use the ring ropes to tangle up Moon as we head to a break.

After the break, Moon takes control with an arm drag to Royce. Moon followed up with various quick kicks. The women trade reversals until Royce sees an opening to land a back elbow strike, a forearm and kick to the midsection.

Moon ducked a spinning kick and followed up by setting up Royce for a powerbomb. Royce managed to avoid this by holding on to the ropes but Moon would take this moment to land an elevated stomp on Royce. Moon would then climb the turnbuckle to hit the Eclipse for the win.

Post match, Kay entered the ring to strike down the NXT Women’s Champion with a big boot. Royce would join her Iconic Duo partner for a two-on-one attack on Moon. This prompted Nikki Cross to come out to make the save for and chase away the Iconic Dup all while her eyes locked on to Moon’s NXT Women’s Championship.

What did you think of this week’s episode of NXT? Are you excited to see Shayna Baszler in NXT? Would you like to have seen this week’s Women’s match air on the USA Network? Let us know in the comments below!

 
  • Danny?

    So The Iconic Duo were kept in NXT to be glorified jobbers….I’m so over them losing all the time especially Billie. They girls deserve better & I’m hoping they get called up during Wrestle Mania season to feud with the Bellas for a tag match at the big event.

    As for Shayna…BYE not here for her basic ass.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      There is no more room on the MR at the moment. WWE is gonna have to wait a full year before they can call up Peyton and Billie. Maybe in after one year, Natalya, Alicia and Tamina will be retired/gone and then there will be room

      • Malcolm James

        Natalya,Alicia and Tamina are not going nowhere wrestling is all they have to be relevant

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        How come there isn’t any room on the MR? There’s plenty of room on SDLive.

        Raw has Dana, Absolution, Asuka, Sasha, Bayley, Mickie, Alicia, Alexa and Nia. That’s 11 girls.

        Smackdown has Charlotte, Riott Squad, Naomi, Becky, Natalya, Lana, Tamina and Carmella. That’s 10 girls. Adding The Iconic Duo to Smackdown will make 12 girls on SD which is only one more than RAW so how is there no more room?

        • Marshy

          There have always been more room for the guys that it is for the women on the MR, women wrestlers have always gets the, “oh we don’t have anything for them that we are going to release them from their WWE contracts that some have continues to wrestle by going to Impact Wrestling or wrestles in the Indies and some have quite the business altogether.

      • Edwards1992

        Why can’t raw and smackdown have 20 women each? Can you imagine the different matches we will get? I’m pretty theyll introduce a women tag team division..

      • IconicTrio

        And you don’t think certain girls (Liv and Sonya *cough*) are going to crash and burn?

    • conan_kun
    • DayOneISH!

      To be honest I don’t consider the iconic duos as jobbers they do have long competitive matches so it’s not like it takes Ember moon 3 seconds to beat them.

      For an Example Dana Brooke losing to Asuka in less than a minute makes her a jobber.Peyton Royce having a 7 min match with Ember doesn’t(I didn’t see the match last night so I don’t know how long it was).

      • Danny?

        That’s why I added the ‘glorified’, they may not be losing in less than a minute but they aren’t winning any matches. Ember is the untouchable champion so she won’t be losing, Kairi is being protected now & you know Shayna is going to be the same so the likelihood of Peyton & Billie winning a match anytime soon is pretty much nil.

  • Jtiera
  • Jo9834

    Shayna Basicler is here!. Its funny to think, in the days of Sable, Trish, Lita and the like, the WWE would never have even looked at a female like her, its incredible to see how open they are now to talent. Its a good thing , I just hope she has improved drastically in the ring.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      I feel like her ties to Ronda is why folks hate her so much

      • Omar Zaal

        No they just want a cookie cutter division to jerk off too all the time.

        • No, it’s because she’s rather old and sucks, and there are at least 15 women from MYC who deserved to get a contract over her.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Yet you would want Tamina to be champion. Ha.

          • Tamina didn’t start wrestling two years ago and she’s not being pushed over others. She’s paid her dues, Shayna got a free pass.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Shayna paid her dues by training and spending two years in the indies. Now, she going thru NXT in order to continue her developing process. On top of that, she happens to be a well known name and to have a connection with Rounda which makes her stock even bigger which can only help. What’s the issue then?

            Mandy Rose started at the exact same and is on the main roster without having to go by NXT and so far, she has shown sloppiness in the ring, difficulties on the mic and lack of character work yet you praise her to death.
            #DoubleStandards

          • Shayna is 37 and lacks wrestling and selling skills, what do you want, her to train until she’s 40? Her going to the MYC finals despite being borderline bad says enough. Her final match with Kairi wasn’t even in top 10 matches out of 32.

            Mandy has had better matches than Shayna regularly on each live event, which is why she got called up. And, she’s not pushing 40s. Shayna is.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Let’s go back to Tamina then. Tamina is 37 or older, Lacks wrestling skills and even more selling skills and isn’t a good mic worker yet she still is on the MR wrestling, taking a spot (and some people want her to be champion). And these are things she has been lacking for years without any improvement. Is her time over? Legit question.

            If it’s a no, then Shayna has all her place especially she has shown to be capable to produce great matches on MYC no matter what anybody can say which is more than I can say about miss Tamina “I only shine in multi-women action” Snuka. She is a great vilain and will get actual heat. And, I don’t know what’s the issue with a woman wrestling until over her 40s as long as she can still go… Men do that. We all know she’s going to the MR by WM since she’s going to be in the 4HW vs 4HW, now is just a way to keep her busy, introduce her to the universe more and to continue her process of training so she be as ready as possible.

            You talk about Mandy but so far, all I have seen is sloppiness and she hasn’t shown me anything that would tell me that she is worth the hype. I have seen more potential as a character let alone for Shayna.
            We don’t know much about Shayna’s progress since then. She’s on NXT so far so let her learn with the best coach out there.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Shayna may have the character down, but her wrestling had been absolutely horrible. Are you complaining that Alexa shouldn’t be on the spotlight despite her excellent character work? If Alexa should be pushed aside, why should Shayna be put over since her character isn’t even as interesting as Alexa’s work and she doesn’t even have the skill to back it up? It’s kinda hypocritical that you want Shayna there but want someone like Bliss, who can actually put a decent match, out, despite the fact that in terms of character, she wxcels way more than Shayna

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I am big fan of Alexa Bliss. She’s among my favorite and that despite the inconstancy of her in-ring work. I have SAID that she deserves to be one of the top girls because she is THAT good. I have criticized her in-ring work when needed because it’s true but I also pointed out her great performances when it was the case when a lot were so bias to admit it just like in her matches with Bayley, Sasha (for most) or with Charlotte.

            Plus, what I criticized the most about her is her super dominant booking and the way her matches are booked which both don’t always fit her body build AND most importantly makes others look weak.

            Now, of course I want her to take a lesser important role, she’s been in the title picture for a year and she’s extremely stale. But I still want her involved because she’s a great talent and I think a top talent should always be involved in something no matter what in order to maintain that star power and popularity and help the rest of the division.

            You had your response.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Girl I’ve seen your post, and they did not reflect this sentiment…I think many users here will agree with me in saying your full of shit

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            But what you feel is on you… I know what I think and that’s what matters. End of story.

          • I’m assuming you didn’t read my commenrs, Tamina didn’t start wrestling two years ago. She’s been around for almost a decade and has delivered in every match where she got to shine. And who’s spot has she ever held back? I’m really curious. I’ll break it down for you.

            Shayna has only been in it for 2 years. That wouldn’t be issue if she wasn’t old. Someone like Taynara (22) has all the time to improve, Shayna does not.

            Her age wouldn’t be an issue if she had experience behind it. Like Mercedes, who’s also 37 but has been wrestling for 17 years. Shayna just started.

            And neither would be an issue if she delivered despite the two, which she didn’t. Bianca, who was wrestling for only 10 MONTHS at that point had a better match than Shayna had the entire tournament. And so have others, who for some reason, didn’t advance far or get signed, but she did.

            You haven’t seen anything from Mandy but a tag match, since I can already see you didn’t watch her live event matches. Once her push starts say goodbye to your faves, not only will she look better than them, but will outwrestle them as well. ???

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I did read it. Yes, she has been wrestling for quite some times and he’s hasn’t improved much and you could even say that she regressed due to injuries that occurred in her life. I am saying she is taking a spot as in she IS on the MR which means she holds a spot on there.

            “Shayna has only been in it for 2 years. That wouldn’t be issue if she wasn’t old.”
            It would have been because she is linked to Rousey. You know that.

            See, “deliver” is a tricky word because… It can mean so much. Before the tapings even began, people were already hating her because of is her friend without knowing much of her and you can look back by yourself. They were just ready for her to fail and had huge expectations because, well, they didn’t want to like her. Now, you and others said she didn’t deliver at all. What does that mean? Her matches with Mercedes, Candice and Mia Yim who were the sole matches she had to work with a solid talent were quality matches. That’s contradictory. Who cares that Bianca or anybody else had a better impression with less experience, why didn’t she deliver to you when she had good matches when she needed to? (Be aware that deliver doesn’t mean there hasn’t been anything negative about her performances)

            Tournament or not, she was about to get signed. Now, wish I could say the same for others which is unfortunate, don’t get me wrong but it is like this and that doesn’t mean they won’t get another opportunity. Girls like Toni Storm or Tessa are young. Life is long. It’s all about patience and faith.

            And, No I didn’t see anything from Mandy and I shouldn’t need to. Now, saying that SO FAR, all she has shown is sloppiness in the ring doesn’t mean I believe she is bad period. She just came in, of course I am willing to give her some time and prove herself some more. With that being said, I remember one girl who was doing great things on live event to the point people were buzzing about her and how didn’t she debut already and then she debuted on NXT and then she got called up to the MR and failed miserably because she was called up too soon. Her name is Summer Rae, another one y’all said she would be a top girl but oh well… Good luck to her for ending all my faves, she will need it.

          • Tamina being on the roster will never hold anyone else’s spot. With or without her there people will shine. Tamina was put in several big matches and delivered in all of them when needed. Shayna didn’t.

            Shayna’s matches underperformed considering she was pushed hard and to the finals. That’s a fact. Like I said there were at least 10 early round matches that were FAR better than the finals, which was supposed to blow others out of the water. She didn’t back it up with wrestling, selling or mic skills.

            There is nothing that sets her apart to be pushed this much, other than knowing Ronda. Is she young? No. Does she have much experience? No. Can she wrestle/sell? No. Does she have the look? No. Literally NOTHING is special about her and yet she’s the one put on my screen just Because she knows a certain someone.

            There was never antthing wrong with Summer. Their mistake was calling her up as a comedy dancer and that changed their perception about her. She wasn’t able to recover after that. Emma tried and even she wasn’t lucky.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            What set her apart? She has a different look, somewhat of a name and certain background which gives her legitimacy, she’s a legit badass and is a HEEL that gets HEAT. That let alone makes her special. People talk about her. It’s a fact. That you like her or not, people talk more about her than most of the girls on the Tournament. She’s apart of a group of women who identify themselves as the 4HW of MMA which in itself creates a money match with the 4HW of WWE. And while she’s not the best in ring worker, she can deliver and is solid enough. She doesn’t need to talk. Her character doesn’t need to. She could even get a manager if that’s the issue.

            You seem to focus on the finals to say she didn’t deliver which is crazy because not only the final was a very good match and a praised one but it wasn’t the sole match she had… While I say, that doesn’t I believe that it was the best potential final we could have had not that it was one of the top matches of the tournament but this also speaks volume on the quality of the actual tournament.

            So yeah, we will definitely disagree on that.

            Oh and yeah, there was nothing with Summer, of course…

          • So does Jazzy Gabert. She has a different look AND she got heat. WHERE is her contract? Nowhere because she doesn’t know Ronda.

            None of her matches were good or outstanding. There were women who had better first round matches than any she had during the whole competition. Compare Kairi’s matches up to the finals to Shayna’s. Not even close. Once again, not worthy of her spot.

            And if you still believe HW match is gonna make money then you’re in for awakening. It’ll flop in front of our eyes.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Again, she’s not the reason why others didn’t get signed (Oh and Jazzy was cheered but that’s irrelevant).
            Yes, her connection with Rounda helped just like Charlotte connection helped, just like Roman’s with the Rock helped, just like The Be.. Well, I am going to leave that one out but the idea is, yes, it is there. We all know it. It’s WWE, nothing new.

            Others had better matches. Kairi’s Matches were much better. Yeah. Then? As long as she delivered on her own that’s what counts to which we will have to agree to disagree.

          • No, Jazzy only got cheered after the match. And she’s not backing up any of that, unlike other who got signed, who again have SOMETHING on their side (youth, looks, skills) while Shayna has none.

            1. She didn’t deliver.
            2. Considering she made it to the finals AND got signed, she WAS supposed to be better than half at least, and she was among the worst.

            It’s all factors going into one. She has no redeeming qualities and it’s unfortunate to see her get a push just because of Ronda while others didn’t even get a proper debut (Abbey, Dakota, Rhea, Sage…).

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            We’ll agree to disagree.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Again, she’s not the reason why others didn’t get signed (Oh and Jazzy was cheered but that’s irrelevant).
            Yes, her connection with Rounda helped just like Charlotte connection helped, just like Roman’s with the Rock helped, just like The Be.. Well, I am going to leave that one out but the idea is, yes, it is there. We all know it. It’s WWE, nothing new.

          • John Finnie

            His point is no matter how bad you think tamina is she has been with the wwe for 8yrs she hasnt been pushed to hold the title she puts everyone over & shes been wrestling since she was 28_29 shes 39 now. I think the point is Shayna will more than likley *A* hold the Nxt title or *B* she & her 3 friends will get a big Wm push while the women like Mickie James Naomi Natalya & yes even Tamina will just get pushed down the line Again when all these women have been out with injuries because they put there bodies on the line every day nearly & Shayna walks in the door & will get a HUGE push which is undeserved….. thats what i read ??

          • Exactly!

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Well Santana Garrett is a very well known name in wrestling, yet she is not signed with WWE. She has more than paid her dues, is super charismatic, and has the in-ring abIlity that allows her to wrestle circles around Shayna. So just because Shayna happens to know Ronda she gets a free pass? I??Dont??Think??So?????? Just because she knows Ronda she got signed but Santana, a wrestling veteran and charismatic woman, doesn’t get signed because she doesn’t have that free pass like shayna? Please. Don’t talk about double standards when Shayna does not even hold a candle to women like Santana, yet here she is getting signed to the biggest wrestling company and getting a free pass despite her basic ass wrestling and sloppy selling. Tell me, why doesn’t Santana get signed? Because she doesn’t know Ronda like Shayna does. Please. It’s not double standards, but the fact that other women like Candice LeRae, Toni Storm, and Santana Garrett have more than paid their dues and yet they don’t get a free pass because they don’t know an over-hyped former MMA champ like rousey and have to take a backseat to someone like shayna is disgusting. Don’t y’all like to bitch that Alexa sucks In the ring and she shouldn’t be in the spotlight? So why is it different with Shayna? She sucks waaaayyy more than Bliss her sellling is awful and yet she’ll be heavily over-pushed…. #GirlBye

          • ????

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Shayna isn’t the reason why others didn’t get signed. Go petition to Vince and HHH for these ones. All I see is nonconstructive arguments and unnecessary hate which makes a discussion with you not worth the time.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Lol girl you’re literally saying that she paid her dues, and all I’m saying is, that if she deserves to be there because she “paid her dues,” then why aren’t other MORE TALENTED women there? You know you’re not going to respond because you tried it. You tried defending Shayna’s basic ass getting signed and debuting despite her very basic in-ring skills and character. You’re just being hypocritical. Like I said, y’all want Alexa out of the spotlight, but are glad when Shayna, someone who can’t even hold a candle to Bliss’s character or in-ring work, is put in the spotlight. I am in NO WAY saying Alexa is an in-ring technician because my girl still needs work, but to call her out for being in the spotlight but want someone who didn’t even put an average match in the MYC is as hypocritical as it gets

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Hum… lol.

            “that if she deserves to be there because she “paid her dues,” then why aren’t other MORE TALENTED women there?”
            Because WWE said so. What else do you want me to respond to that? If you believe that the reason others haven’t been signed is because she got signed, well you are a little too naive. I already addressed the fact that Alexa is indeed one of my favorite but it seems like you just want to ignore it. More power to you.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            But you see, the fact that you’re supporting someone who is going to basically erase a lot of what the hw and Mickie and Paige and Emma
            And Natalya with very mediocre matches and horrible skills is beyond disgusting. Yes we are women’s wrestling fans and should support all women’s wrestlers, but it’s DISGUSTING that someone with very low skills and moveset and who is really slow is going to shine and get bigger moments than others who have sacrificed their body and have yet to be put in the spotlight (Emma, Summer Rae, Mickie, Alicia). The biggest thing that annoyed me from your argument was that you said Shayna doesn’t
            Have a free pass, but 95% of PEOPLE HERE EILL TELL YOU THE ONLY REASON SHAYNA IS WHERE SHE IS AT, IS BECAUSE SHE HAS A FREE PASS THAT ALLOWED HER TO GET SIGNED. DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT A BASIC WRESTLER AT HER AGE WOULD GET SIGNED WHEN THERE ARE YOUNGER TALENTS WITH MORE TIME TO GROW?????????

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Embarrassing…
            Well, I guess that is the type of passion that she create. You seem to hate her with such a passion that you kind of look foolish but oh well… She’s there, just get over it. I am personally over talking with you on the matter.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            I know, it must be embarrassing for you to support someone as mediocre and untalented as she is. Her badass character may be cool and all, but there is no way in hell ima stand by and see Shayna get pushed over women like the Icons who have more than paid their dues… good day you

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Tell me, what is Shayna gonna do when she can’t carry matches? Because her match with Zeda was a squash, Mia Yim carried her on the second round, Candice on the third, and Kairi did most of the work in the finals… you’re just mad because I speak facts. Shayna doesn’t have a free pass? Marti Belle is basic in the ring but her character work is there just like Shayna. Why didn’t Triple H sign her? Oh that’s right, because she doesn’t have Ronda to give her a free pass?????

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Not you trying to make a point with the one who made the worst impression out of all the MYC girls, Marti Belle…
            Plus, take a look back at the MYC. Shayna had just as much offense than Kairi if not more and it was the same case with Candice which makes the word “carried” not really valid. She held her own.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Yea, I’m not saying Marti Belle was good. Her match sucked, just like all of Shayna’s did. Her match with Mercedes was barely passable and that’s because of Mercedes experience. Yea she “carried her own,” LOL NO WONDER a lot of sights reported the match as just “okay” and it didn’t hold a candle to Kairi vs Toni or vs Bianca or Tessa

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Girl you know it’s true and it’s funny you think Shayna/Kairi had a “very good match” when wrestling sites mostly praised the story telling rather than the wrestling. There were some, such as Bleacher report, that Toni/Kairi was waaaayyyyy better than this finals match and guess why?!? Because it was someone more experienced that knew how to wrestle and sell, not stumble around and be sloppy

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Thank you?????? I’d be totally here for her if she at least had the in-ring skill on Sonya. Even then, she still is sooo basic she’s out here making basic girls above average. She’s slow in the ring and her moveset is as basic as it gets

          • John Finnie

            I do like her finnisher its pretty cool

          • Omar Zaal

            Y’all will cry and whine no matter who WWE signs.

            Since when the late thirties are considered old?

          • I explained that below. 37 isn’t old if you have tons of experience behind you, but Shayna started wrestling only 2 years ago and still isn’t good. By the time she improves to a good level, it won’t be worth it.

          • Omar Zaal

            I’m not saying she’s on the level of Sasha, Mercedes or Asuka but she’s good in her own way, Pro Wrestling got so many styles, maybe you’re not a fan of that particular style.

            At the end of the day that’s why she’s in NXT. Remember Bayley and Sasha before NXT had 3 years of experience but yet very basic in the ring much worse than Baszler imo. Look at them now they’re so great at what they do.

          • But the thing is, she’s not even on that good level for this push and like I said, she’s not young enough to have time to improve. It’s now or never with her and after all the spotlight on her in the MYC, she didn’t back it up so I’m very suspicious about it, especially knowing how others would do great if given her role.

      • Jo9834

        I honestly think Ronda isn’t hated at all, wrestling fans hate any outsiders that get a quick ride to the top of the chain, basically because we see our favourites work their behinds off for their spot, and its a respect thing.

        Shayna is probably hated because she looks worse and more threatening than she actually is in the wrestling ring, and doesn’t wrestle all that well.

    • DayOneISH!

      Tbh we always had a “Shayna” type on the main roster even during those times Luna Vachon,Jazz,etc the problem was that back then they was always made front of for their looks on tv especially by Jerry the king lawler.

      Hell Molly Holly was considered fat and was always the joke of having a big ass even though Molly was always thick it’s amazing that in this new era being thick is pretty much the new thing to have.

      • Marshy

        Jerry The King Lawler only looks at women wrestlers who are young enough to be his daughter that he would be saying things that he would be on the list of men who are doing things that is considered inappropriate in the workplace and if he is among the list that we all be saying that we knew it along. There are some of the guys who likes a woman like Molly Holly.

        • DayOneISH!

          I agree I like Molly Holly always had and I don’t understand why she wasn’t a bigger babyface.

      • Jo9834

        There was NEVER a Shayna type, she simply doesn’t back it up in the ring like Jazz, Molly or Luna , not even close. Shayna looks like she can do what the aforementioned women do, but she can’t.

        • DayOneISH!

          I never said she could do what the other girls I mention do.Im just saying looks wise if she was signed in the WWE in the 90s/Early 2000s she would’ve been made front of for her looks on tv especially if Jerry was still on commentary.

    • A?.

      SKJFNDSKJNGJKDNGKSDNKGSFSALFMLKSDMKLS

      anyways.

    • John Finnie

      Jazz

      • Jo9834

        Not at all, Jazz could wrestle and was a legitimate beast in the ring. Shayna isn’t even in the same league. What I was trying to get at was that Jazz wasn’t hired based on her looks, but she could kill it in the ring, Shayna has neither.

        • John Finnie

          Thats what i was meaning as well #wirescrossed

  • Omar Zaal

    Nice
    I love this chick.
    Can’t wait for her vs Sonya, Jax, Asuka, Charlotte, Ember in the future.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Keep Shayna. If they have her defeat Ember Moon for the NXT Women’s Championship I’ll be disgusted. The Iconic Duo needs the title more than anyone. Shayna needs to take her ass back to San Jose with Bayley.

    • Summer_Slay

      Jesus, let Ember have it for a while she just won it.

  • Randall

    I’m sorry but after watching the Mae Young challenge I don’t ever want to see Shayna in the wrestling ring. She’s dangerous and just plain awful.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      If she was so bad, isn’t NXT the great place the improve? I am sorry but what’s the point of NXT if it’s not allowed for those who need to improve?

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Somewhere along the lines, fans have come to perceive that NXT must be the place where women excel and have great matches, all because of the HW. So it’s not about NXT being the place to improve because y’all have come to expect great things and matches from NXT. Shayna cannot deliver on what y’all love to bash Alexa for, and that’s in-ring skills. So no, she doesn’t get a pass

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Her match with Mercedes was among the best matches of the tournament let alone. She can deliver. None of her matches with top talents were bad. None. Not to say that she doesn’t have weakness in the ring because she has a lot but she can deliver. I already addressed Alexa. No need to go further.

  • Chargod Flair #5x

    Is it just me or did they not show this on the USA version of NXT? Just an ember video package is all I saw.

      it’s the Schmick-1-9

  • ?K . A . T ?

    I’m cool with Shayna being in NXT as long as she DOESN’T get fast tracked to the Women’s Championship, because we all know she would only get it that fast due to her association with Ronda and that just doesn’t sit well with me.

  • PeppermintButler

    Ok first what the fuck is Peyton wearing??? Also why are they acting drunk fratboys with the hand gestures?? What happened Nikki and Taynara’s feud? Nikki rescued Ruby from the Iconic Duo now Ember, Peyton and Billie should feuding with either Ember for the title or Nikki for payback now.

  • Return to send thanks I don’t want it in wwe she was awful in the MYC and peyton is Just getting better and better

  • As for the match, it was short but good. I’m so mad at them keeping ID in NXT but only to keep them putting others over. Nikki has had many title shots in the past year, I’m over her and she needs a break.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Can’t wait for her debut. A heel that will get actual heat, that’s great. The vignettes are mysterious and very badass! Very interested to see how they handle her and to see her progress in the ring.

  • Monkey Tennis

    Still yet to see anything from Shayna (either on the WWE or her indie work) that in any way interests me.

    I still maintain if the WWE had wanted an MMA/Pro-Wrestling ‘hybrid’, then Nicole Savoy would have been the considerably better option, as her style is more of a combination of styles and she’s so much more exciting in the ring, as opposed to Shayna’s pretty much 90% MMA moveset.

    But sadly, sometimes it’s not what you know but who you know…

    • #FlairfortheGold

      It’s like one of those college parties where you only get in based on who you know rather than being yourself?

    • Like Mike

      I agree, I was very impressed by Savoy in the MYC.

  • Keeana Tayler
  • Kristina Buford

    It’s amazing to see how Peyton has improved leaps and bounds in the ring. I honestly want her to have the belt next.

  • Everyone is so hard on her ! At least she is more impressive than Sonya Deville in the « former mma girl » role and I actually am interested to see what she can do !

    • Wicked Emma

      I don’t like Sonya either.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        Omg Sonya has not done anything to y’all hoes lmaoo

        • Wicked Emma

          Don’t call me a hoe Im not one of your internet enemies you be talking to I don’t play that. I don’t have to like Sonya.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Omg girl y’all are so sensitive? One of the few things that makes this generation so annoying…

          • Wicked Emma

            I don’t care if you thinks it’s annoying. Don’t go around calling people hoes.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Lol yea unlike you, others can take a joke?

          • Wicked Emma

            I can take a joke. Calling people hoes is not a joke.

            lol I’m not the one crying about being called something that isn’t even supposed to be taken seriously LOL that would be you GIRL…unless your overly sensitive self is bothered I call you that too?

            My apologies

  • Dreignz

    Hum no, she can’t stay home, we don’t need her and we don’t want her !

  • Damn!

    She’s gonna get that Brock Lesnar esque push and make everyone in the NXT roster look like jobbers……I’m not excited for that ?

    • Wicked Emma

      Agreed

  • A?.

    I can’t believe she’s about to make a debut and get more spotlight over girls like Dakota, Rhea, Sage, Bianca, Abbey, etc. Disgusting.

    • Marshy

      If she didn’t know Rhonda Rousey and is friends with Rhonda Rousey that her foot would not be getting in the door especially in the WWE.

      • A?.

        Right? And there’s nothing interesting about her, at all. Her ring skills are awful, her selling is even worse, 0 charisma, and is ugly as hell, no offense but it’s just the truth, she looks like a butch Bayley.

        • ???

          Do not compare Bayley to this :(

          • A?.

            I mean

  • Alejandro

    Shayna Baszler is going to be a great addition to the women’s division in NXT. Ember Moon, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Nikki Cross are getting stalled. Is also about time Peyton and Billie Kay get called up to SmackDown or Raw.

    • Wicked Emma

      How is Shayna Bazler going to be a great addition to Smackdown?

      • Alejandro

        Shayna is not going to SmackDown, she’s going to NXT. And she is very much needed there, right now we have been watching the same girls do the same things, it’s pretty much stalled the NXT women’s division and they need newcomers that can capture the fans attention. Shayna is probably going to be booked as a very dominant wrestler, she probably captures the title and I’m in for all that.

    • Like Mike

      Your opinion on Shayna is definitely in the minority lol but I’ll agree with the fact that NXT does need new faces, and Billie/Peyton are looooooong over due for a call up. They’ve been their since the four horsewomen were there.

      • Alejandro

        My opinion it’s probably in the minority because most WWE fans love nostalgia. When I say a new face I mean it. Shayna can do big things in NXT.

        • Like Mike

          There are a lot of fresh faces from the MYC that I think a lot of people would prefer get the spot over Shayna. I feel like she’s more about drawing a broader audience such as MMA fans to watch. I think people draw issue with Shayna because they weren’t impressed by her performance in the MYC, that shes getting pushed so hard, her lack of “star quality” in a lot of peoples eyes, her declining age ext.

          • Alejandro

            Everybody’s age us declining… and that’s why she could turn into a huge bright star, she is the antithesis of what the general conception of a women wrestler is in terns of mainstream audience. I believe Shayna is just part of a bigger plan, a long term plan. I was extremely impressed by Piper Niven and yet I recognize that there is no room for her in WWE, not because she can’t fit in… but because they already have a big girl with Nia Jax. And so it happens with the majority of independent wrestlers that were promoted in the MYC.

  • ???

    Okay let me be complete honest, most people don’t want Shayna . Not just because she can’t wrestle it also because her look .. and I’m one of them ! Yes look is IMPORTANT just like the wrestling skills !

    I don’t say I want bra and panties and this shit to be back no but we want someone that has it all , look + charisma + mic skills + ring skills .. like Trish and Lita! Those are perfect role models !

  • NoWayHoeSay

    Sorry but I genuinely thought those teasers were for a male wrestler

    • #FlairfortheGold

      Lol you mean sorry not sorry lol

    Okay let me be complete honest, most people don’t want Shayna . Not just because she can’t wrestle it also because her look .. and I’m one of them ! Yes look is IMPORTANT just like the wrestling skills !

    • A?.

      I totally agree, like I’m not trying to sound shady or anything but she’s very ugly. People call Ruby ugly but I think she’s beautiful and unique, but Shayna? My god.

      • ???

        Haha totally agree too :)

        I mean they all say Ruby is ugly but I can’t see it ? They also say she looks like a man ! She’s feminine !

        Shayna isn’t just like that but she looks manly too , her face looks like 16 years old boy with a man’s body .

    • Like Mike

      Can’t lie it’s true, I mean, when you think “Superstar” you think someone who has that kind of a look. Someone you can awe at, but Shayna.. my god.

  • IconicTrio

    I couldn’t express less enthusiasm for her debut if I tried.

  • Gato_wiska

    Just for the lulz put her in a romance angle. Have guys fight over her. Make the women of the roster wonder why guys are so seduced by her looking like that. Have Shayna kiss multiple guys. That will make her character different from Sonya.

    No one expected A virginal looking AJ lee got in romance angle over the bombshell types.

  • John Finnie

    As much as i like her i know Wwe well enough to know that all the women who spend yrs at NXT or on the MR will get pushed down the line so Shayna & her 3 friends get that undeserved WM spot or even the Main women spot & that’s why its a NO from me

  • John Finnie

    She kinda reminds me of Bayley’s big brother ????

  • oh surprise???!! I hope she doesn’t win the NXT Women’s title… I really hope she has improved since her last time.

  • Wicked Emma

    Meh I don’t want to see Shayna in NXT.

  • Damn, I thought I was reading comments on youtube for a second…

  • Royalty ?

    Shayna’s 37. What is she going to spend 2 years in nxt and do one year on the main roster? They’ve never kept a women past the age of 39. That’s because they’ve all been released or left before then. If she’s 40 competing in wwe as a women that’s interesting and sad at the same time not sad because she’s old sad because she waited so late in her career to do this.

    • #FlairfortheGold

      My bet is she spends MONTHS in NXT before moving up to the MR before others who are established and ready (Iconic Duo and Ember Moon)

      • Royalty ?

        I think either Peyton and Billie should debut at royal rumble or wrestlemania if not it’s probably obvious there either going to get drafted or sent off to the main roster like bayley later. 2018

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      She’s been doing house shows.

      • I need her on my television. She needs to be cutting promos, so she can become the most complete package NXT has produced for women.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Same with Lacey Evans where tf is she?

          • Right?!
            Bianca, Kai, Lacey, and Rhea need to be pushed.

          • TBH. Absolution and the Riott Squad would be more believable with Evans, Belair, Kai and Rhea…but I would rather them debut under their own gimmicks and not as the Nexus

  • 3???????

    Keep it

  • -V

    What is “Shayna Baszler” actually?

    • A bad ass bitch that people are afraid of taking over.
      She’s a legit threat– people wanna downplay her wrestling skills. Literally, watch every match she had in NXT with a mindset that this girl could take over WWE.

  • Alex

    Based on the way she looks in the teaser promo here’s how I would like to see the booking of Shayna Baszler’s NXT gimmick. As it relates to the following areas I think she should be a female version of Finn Balor’s non-Demon persona and Rockstar Spud’s pre-TNA rocker character, overall swagger, ring entrance, “to the ring” & “ring” attire, hairstyle, and promo style (obviously minus the accents).
    In the vein of The Million Dollar Man’s old post-victory celebration I would also like to see her stuff a “Queen of Spades” playing card in the mouth of an unconscious and defeated opponent. To add an extra layer of coldblooded disrespect to this action maybe Shayna could lick and/or wipe her sweaty body with the card before executing it.
