WWE aired a new vignette for a soon-to-debut NXT Superstar on this week's show, and the subject's identity has already been revealed.
According to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, the video features WWE Mae Young Classic finalist Shayna Baszler, who is set to debut for the developmental brand sometime in the next few weeks.
Some eagle-eyed fans had already figured this out prior to the Observer's confirmation. Though short, the clip features the word "soon" with the o's replaced by spade symbols, and Baszler's nickname is 'The Queen Of Spades.' A seemingly obvious deduction, but apparently the correct one.
WWE are yet to make concrete plans for the former MMA fighter's arrival, but it's thought that she'll debut through a confrontation with Kairi Sane, who defeated her in the Mae Young Classic. This may result in a match between the two at TakeOver: Philly during Royal Rumble weekend, though WWE could have other plans for the women's division.
Once considered a pioneering women's mixed martial artist, Baszler only debuted as a professional wrestler in September 2015, but impressed in the MYC. She's a close friend of Ronda Rousey, who is still expected to appear for WWE in 2018.
