On a related note, Becky Lynch spoke with The Hindustan Times and may have revealed that former UFC star and MMA Four Horsewoman Shayna Baszler, who has some indie pro wrestling experience, will be involved in the tournament. Becky commented:
“I think it is a great opportunity for the wrestlers to show their talent on such a big stage and it is brilliant that they will have a complete show all to themselves. I’ll be there to see every match and this can potentially change the entire scene of women’s wrestling in the WWE.”
Becky Lynch also dropped a major hint that former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Shayna Baszler could be a part of the tournament. The ‘Queen of spades’ has appeared for a couple of independent promotions including Ring of Honor and Lynch said that she is excited to see how Baszler does in the tournament.
“I am excited to see Shayna Baszler in the tournament. It is true that she does not have much experience in pro-wrestling, but her UFC background will give her a huge advantage.”
