Shayna Baszler reveals why Vince McMahon likes her style

Last updated

WWE Superstar Shayna Baszler recently discussed why WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is a fan of her style in the ring.

The former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion recently spoke to, with one of the topics discussed being her relationship with McMahon.

‘My style in the ring, people believe, ’˜I dunno man, she went off the page and did something there’. Vince really likes that,’ Shayna Baszler began.

‘There’s times where he’s like, ’˜That looked like you were just fighting.’ I’m like, ’˜Yeah’¦’ For a while, it was hard for me to find the balance between, ’˜am I a fighter right now, or am I a pro wrestler?’” Baszler continued. “Even in the ring. I think I’ve really found the melding between the two, it’s been good.’

‘I think it’s just knowing that it needs to be a performance,’ she said. ‘If you watch UFC, I can’t just go in, take someone down, and lay on them [in WWE]. Is there a time for me to do that in a match sometimes? Yeah! If someone’s down, hit them” Baszler added.

‘But that can’t be the totality of it. And I think trying to know when to do that and when to rip someone off or something, knowing the whens of doing the two different sides is something I had to learn. And not just for me, but for what [Vince] wants. It’s his show! So knowing what the writers and he wants and when, and navigating that” Baszler concluded.
