While speaking with TV Insider, Mae Young Classic competitor Shayna Baszler revealed that she called Ronda Rousey and the other Horsewomen to appear at the Tournament back on July 13th and July 14th at Full Sail University.
“We’re such good friends and training partners and teammates. I specifically called all three of them and said, ‘Guys, this is the most important thing I’ve ever done in my combat sports career. I’d love for you guys to be there because you were there at the beginning of all of this, and I would like you to be there for this.’ They were like, ‘Yeah, you got it. We’ll drop whatever we are doing. We’re there.’”
Baszler also talked about her decision to come to WWE and revealed it’s something she’s had her eye on.
“WWE is something I’ve had my eye on. After the call, I said to myself, ‘All right, it’s time to get it in gear.’ It fired me up to get into even better shape and get ready to go.”
