WWE’s developmental brand has established a fan base of its own at this point. WWE NXT Superstars appear every week on the USA Network. One former NXT Women’s Champion will finally be making her way to Raw shortly.
Shayna Baszler has accomplished pretty much everything she can in NXT. Now it is time for her to arrive on the main roster.
We previously reported via Brad Shepard that Baszler is expected on Raw next week. She is in line to face Becky Lynch at WrestleMania.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter confirmed this report and elaborated. The Queen Of Spades will be on the red team “shortly.”
Shayna Baszler will be a regular on Raw shortly. She is leaving NXT and this has been planned for a long time, probably close to a year so the thing about not wanting to transfer stars in NXT to the main roster and give the idea NXT is developmental or a stepping stone rather than a third brand doesn’t apply to her.
Becky Lynch vs Shayna Baszler could be a great addition to the WrestleMania card. We’ll have to see how quickly things come together in regards to making that match official as they still have Super ShowDown and Elimination Chamber in between now and the show of shows.
