Shayna Baszler is a close friend of Ronda Rousey and comes from a MMA background. Therefore, it is obvious for her to get accustomed to the skill set of MMA moves. This specialty of Baszler’s was even questioned by her boss, Vince McMahon. The 77-year-old believed that she lacked the traditional pro wrestling moves.

In a recent interview with Ring the Belle, Shayna Baszler mentioned the things Vince McMahon told her. The former WWE Chairman wanted her not to do conventional pro wrestling moves. Bazler revealed that Mr McMahon said, “You have something everybody else doesn’t do.” He did not want her to display her MMA style in the WWE ring.

The Queen of Spades revealed that it became difficult for her to wrestle her matches. She said that Vince questioned her, asking about the kind of wrestling she did in the ring. Vince exclaimed, “What was that!!” and rebuked her. The former MMA star believes the communication that took place earlier between them is different today.

Shayna Baszler has been one of the few superstars who brings out intensity and brutality in her matches. Moreover, her unique style of wrestling fascinates the WWE Universe. She has dominated the roster and obliterated her opponents in the ring. Baszler was on hiatus since her partner, Ronda Rousey, was injured.

However, she returned on an episode of Monday Night Raw along with The Rowdy One. On her return, the duo launched an attack on Raquel Rodriguez. Baszler and Rousey will compete for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships at next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
