While speaking to Muscle & Fitness, Shayna Baszler was asked about sharing “tips and tricks” with the Baddest Woman On The Planet. After all, Baszler was in NXT prior to Rousey’s arrival in WWE. The two are also members of MMA’s 4 Horsewomen.
Baszler said that the two didn’t really share any tips, but knowing that her friend was going through the same experience as her was comforting.
Yeah, a little bit. Rather than giving advice, it was just nice to have someone to talk about it [being in WWE] with. So, it was like sharing in the uniqueness of what we were both going through.
Then, of course, Ronda getting to the position where she was in WWE, mirrored what I was going through in NXT, where we were both kind of at the top of the division.
We would get together and train, of course, and we always did that in MMA too, so it was more like getting together and just sharing in the process of it, rather than tips and tricks.
We’ll have to see whether Ronda Rousey will ever make a return to WWE. If WWE can arrange Baszler vs Rousey that might be a fantastic match with a ton of story behind it.
Let’s just see what happens, but at this point Baszler seems pretty focused on bringing her A-Game to the USA Network as NXT debuts on September 18th.
