WWE is going through a lot of changes and that is evident both on and off-screen. Now, it appears that certain Superstars are getting a lot more creative freedom.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler were allowed to plan out an angle by themselves. This was a video where Shayna and Ronda were able to explain their previous segment that aired on WWE television.

Recently, Rousey was booked in a Women’s Title program with Baszler’s then-partner Natayla. Along the way, Baszler was briefly integrated into the story, with the two giving a nod to their yearslong history and friendship with one another. However, there was also a video released on WWE on Fox’s social media where the two made sense of the situation, and explaining their stances.

We’re told that the angle was something Rousey and Baszler planned out themselves, and wasn’t cooked up by WWE creative. In addition, we were informed that there was no real plan to acknowledge the history between the two on WWE TV at that point outside of a mention on commentary.


This was a way to make sense of the angle between Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, because some fans may not understand the history between them. We’ll have to see if 1/2 of MMA’s 4 Horsewomen ever have an actual program in WWE, but this is certainly a good sign that WWE will give them a proper spotlight if and when that time comes.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
