Real reason for Shayna Baszler's continued WWE absence
With Shayna Baszler having not been seen on WWE TV for approaching two months, fans are wondering just what’s going on with the Queen of Spades.
In a new report by Fightful Select, it’s believed that Baszler isn’t hurt, has no injury niggles, and is not one of the WWE staff who has tested positive for the global bastard (hey there, Adam Wilbourn!).
By all accounts, the reason that the former NXT Women’s Champion hasn't been on WWE Raw recently is simply down to creative not having anything for her. Yes, the legit shoot fighter, one of the biggest badasses in the company, period, and somebody who was involved in one of WrestleMania 36’s marquee matches… and creative has nothing for her.
Previously, Paul Heyman had been working closely with Baszler since she moved to the Raw brand earlier this year. And seemingly, Heyman’s removal from the Raw Executive Producer position looks to have had an adverse effect on Baszler’s positioning on the brand.
For the record, the last time Shayna Baszler was seen on WWE TV was in a submission victory over Natalya on May 18.
