Shayna Baszler on being happy about WWE not pushing her friendship with Ronda Rousey

Former NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler recently spoke with The New York Post to promote the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event this Sunday.

At this show, she’ll battle Natalya, Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Asuka in an Elimination Chamber Match. The winner of this contest will earn the right to challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s title at WrestleMania 36.

During this interview, she spoke about her friendship with former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Baszler noted that she’s glad WWE hasn’t forced their friendship down the throats of fans.

“I am glad that it’s not something that WWE has like forced down people’s throats,” Baszler said of her friendship with Rousey. “I’m not afraid. It’s not that I want to hide the fact that Ronda’s my friend. I don’t. But at the same time, I busted my ass just as hard as anyone else to do this, so I’m glad that people can see it.”

A recent report surfaced that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon may have some doubts about Baszler following her most recent match on WWE television, which you can read about here. 

Baszler also talked about stars from Raw or SmackDown challenging for NXT Titles, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke, and more. You can read the full interview here.
