Former UFC fighter Shayna Baszler may be getting a shot with WWE. The 36-year-old is receiving a tryout at the WWE Performance Center this week. The news was first reported by Squared Circle Sirens.

Baszler is a long-time wrestling fan and we noted earlier this month that she captured the AIW Women's Championship with Ronda Rousey cheering her on. There had been talk for the last couple of years about WWE bringing in women from UFC. They've had interest in getting Ronda Rousey for more appearances and as recently as August, they were trying to get Paige VanZant in for an angle at SummerSlam.

Baszler has been wrestling since last year with the STARDOM promotion, among others. She was released last year after losing to Amanda Nunes via TKO on UFC Fight Night 62.
