WWE announced that Shayna Baszler has begun training at the WWE Performance Center. WWE published the following quote from Baszler about her transition from mixed martial arts to professional wrestling:
“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.’”
