Mae Young Classic Competitor Officially Signed With WWE and Joining the Performance Center

Published

on

WWE.com has released an article announcing that former UFC competitor, member of the MMA version of The Four Horsewomen, and Mae Young Classic competitor, Shayna Baszler, has officially joined the WWE Performance Center.

Here is an excerpt from the article below:

A member of the MMA Four Horsewomen and former training partner of Ronda Rousey, Baszler brings extensive catch wrestling expertise to the Performance Center. She learned the dangerous and hybrid form of grappling under former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett and the late U.K. legend Billy Robinson, continuing a prestigious lineage that also includes Karl Gotch, whom Japanese audiences once dubbed “The God of Wrestling.”

Baszler described WWE as “the next step” in her progression as a combat athlete.

“It’s very serious to me and, in some ways, a lot more important [than MMA] based on where I come from,” Baszler said. “Waving the banner of my coaches is a heavy flag to wield, so it’s something I take very serious. Because of that, I wanted to start at the beginning and show that I’m willing to start at the bottom and prove myself and work my way up, so there’s no excuse when I get here and I’m breaking these girls in half. I didn’t get any ‘gimmes.’”


Author’s Note: Cool to see that Shayna Baszler is officially in the WWE. I wonder if she will be put in the main roster or NXT. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
