Vince McMahon Removed Shayna Baszler Off TV
Shayna Bazler has not been on WWE television for two months, last seen on the 5/12 edition of Monday Night RAW.
Dave Meltzer added more details in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, indicating Vince McMahon made the call to take her push away, and remove her off television.
Vince also soured on Baszler completely because he never conceptually grasped the style that an MMA fighter should use in pro wrestling and she doesn’t check his buttons when it comes to women in wrestling, so he made the call to remove her push and take her off television.
Vince made this decision prior to Paul Heyman being removed as Executive Director of Monday Night RAW.
“Nobody really knows the reason Heyman was dumped past the ratings were bad and a lot on the inside could see it coming, but in hindsight it appears Vince didn’t agree with Heyman on the potential of a lot of the talent he was trying to build around.”
During an episode of The Bellas Podcast, Becky Lynch revealed she wanted to drop the title to Shayna Baszler, but that idea rejected.
“I actually thought I was going to lose the title at WrestleMania, which I pitched, but that was the end of it. Plans change.”
At the time, there was plans for Baszler to win the Money In The Bank, but Vince decided against it, and went with Asuka instead.
