The Rock has been sharing a lot of love for pro wrestling on social media lately. He’s an authority on the subject and his opinions carry a lot of weight. At his peak, Dwayne Johnson’s character brought in $60,000 a night at WWE merchandise stands.
That’s why it’s a true honor to have The Great One speak highly of you. Recently, the former WWE Champion shared that he is a big fan of Shayna Baszler. He replied to a tweet and shared his thoughts on the SmackDown superstar.
I love Shayna too!!! She’s a wrestling bad ass and trained by a legit wrestling bad ass OG (Billy R) who used to wrestle with my granddad, the great High Chief Maivia. Life is crazy and so connected”
That’s high praise coming from somebody of The Rock’s stature. Not only is he a living legend in the world of professional wrestling, but he’s a legitimate Hollywood superstar. He stars in Red Notice, which is the most watched Netflix film of all time.
Baszler started working as a pro wrestler back in 2015. She had a two-year run in UFC, but never won a fight. Shayna’s most notable UFC bout was a 1st round TKO loss to Amanda Nunes in March of 2015. Her overall MMA record stands at 15 wins and 11 losses.
After joining WWE in 2017, Shayna Baszler advanced to the finals of the Mae Young Classic. She was defeated in the finals by Kairi Sane. She was a two-time NXT Women’s Champion and is also a two-time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion with the recently-released Nia Jax.
