Shayna Baszler is the new NXT Women’s Champion and the former UFC star made history last night when she won the Championship for the second time, but this win could have come at a price.
Once again, Baszler was able to get the better of Kairi Sane, but she needed the help of Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir in order to overcome the threat of The Pirate Princess.
Baszler left the arena with the Women’s Championship even though it was thought that her match against Sane would be her last in NXT, but according to Heel by Nature, she was spotted leaving the show on crutches.
The former UFC star was spotted by a fan outside the building in Long Island using a crutch on her left side. Baszler has documented a number of knee injuries over the past few years and it appears that the Champion could have tweaked her knee once again and now the medical staff could be allowing her to rest this just in case it leads to something much bigger.
Baszler now has Duke and Shafir by her side, which means that she won’t have any issues defending her title in NXT, but since the upcoming episodes of the show up until War Games in two weeks time have already been recorded, the Women’s Champion will be able to rehab her injury for a few weeks before she is needed on WWE TV.
It’s likely that Sane will cash in her rematch clause for the Championship at War Games, so Baszler has a few weeks to rest her knee and reach a healthy level before she will be forced to go to war with The Pirate Princess once again.
