Shayna Baszler got emotional as she recalled the struggles that have brought her here. She said, “We had to fight and claw and demand for this opportunity.” The 42-year-old said that she struggled to even pay for enough food to survive the week. Her fight to make a living throughout her initial days had not been easy.

Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey are tired of the ‘temporary tag team division’
Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler were crowned the new Women’s Tag Team Champions in an episode of Monday Night Raw. Those titles were vacated by Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez. As a result, last week the WWE Universe saw an epic Fatal-Four-Way match for the same, with Baszler and Rousey coming up with the victory.
Following their win, the Queen of Spades spoke on the “Cheap Heat” podcast about the poor bookings for the women’s tag team division. Shayna Baszler claimed that their title win would structure the women’s tag team division and make it more competitive. The 42-year-old stated how temporary the division has been since its inception in 2019.
She emphasized making the tag team division independent while not taking away the prestige from the singles division. Baszler stated that Ronda Rousey took the initiative to pair them up when she demanded the same from the management. It will be interesting to see how their storyline progresses on Monday Night Raw.
