Shayna Baszler has been part of the WWE family for quite a few years now and has won championship gold numerous times. She is currently one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions and it appears Baszler and Ronda Rousey are trying to appear more natural in promos.

After a brief hiatus following WrestleMania 39, Ronda Rousey returned again and set her sights on the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. She and Shayna Baszler defeated three other teams on RAW this week in order to capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, much to the dismay of fans.

Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler becoming the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions was actually supposed to happen at WrestleMania 39, but plans were delayed due to Ronda Rousey’s injury.

While they are feared for their MMA background, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler are certainly not praised for their microphone skills, especially Ronda Rousey. While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Shayna Baszler talked about her promo work and revealed that both she and Ronda Rousey are trying to appear more natural in promos.


“It’s just a matter of not trying so hard. The misunderstanding comes from, and this is no disrespect to any co-workers or whatever, everybody is different. People get so used to a promo sounding like a promo.

When you get someone like Ronda or me that comes in, and we just talk, we’re not doing a promo. It’s not like [aggressive loud voice] ‘we’re the champions now. We’re going to do this, and we’re going to wreck shop in the WWE.’

We’re saying, [normal tone] ‘We’re the champions now. We’d like anyone to step up because we’re going to wreck shop no matter who gets in the ring.’ We’re saying it like we’re just talking.

I think it’s unfamiliar. People think promos have to be a certain way, and they forget that this is also a way and it’s a lot more natural. It’s helped Ronda too, being in a tag team with me, someone who is her friend, to be more relaxed in promos and come off a little more natural.”

Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey are set to compete in a title unification match against Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn for the WWE and NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships on the June 23 edition of Friday Night Smackdown. We’ll have to see who will come out on top in the match.
