Weeks after it was rumored that Mae Young Classic finalist Shayna Baszler had signed with the WWE, the company has now announced that the UFC fighter turned pro wrestler arrived to the WWE Performance Center last week to begin her training as an official WWE signee.
In an interview with WWE.com, Baszler had this to say about embarking on her new career:
“I’m looking forward to getting out there and twisting limbs off and breaking bodies. I can’t wait. It’s very serious to me and, in some ways, a lot more important [than MMA] based on where I come from. Waving the banner of my coaches is a heavy flag to wield, so it’s something I take very serious. Because of that, I wanted to start at the beginning and show that I’m willing to start at the bottom and prove myself and work my way up, so there’s no excuse when I get here and I’m breaking these girls in half. I didn’t get any ‘gimmes.’”
There are current rumors plans that Baszler along with her fellow MMA Horsewomen Ronda Rousey, Jessamyn Duke, and Marina Shafir will partake in a feud with WWE’s Four Horsewomen Bayley, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.
