One of the biggest rumors heading into WrestleMania this year centered around Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey, who have unfinished business from WrestleMania 35.
It’s highly unlikely that WWE would be able to set up a match of this magnitude in just eight weeks’ time, which means that it’s now unlikely for WrestleMania 37.
As part of a recent appearance on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, Shayna Baszler opened up about the possibility of facing her long-time friend at WrestleMania.
“After The Ultimate Fighter, I was at a stage in my life where the world fell apart… Ronda had flown me out to California… and I went out there and she really helped me. I remember sitting around… we were celebrating something. It’s this big Armenian meal, right? These guys bring out all these platters and we’re drinking and making toasts. I remember toasting: “Ronda? I am going to give you the fight that you deserve, to thank you for what you did for me in my life.”…It’s funny because Ronda and I have talked about, at the time, you’d think it meant MMA. But now, it might mean this (wrestling). That’s a WrestleMania… we’ll have to see!”
Baszler went on to note that this probably wouldn’t happen at this year’s WrestleMania but did explain a scenario in which the two women could face off and still remain teammates.
“WrestleMania is coming up, so it’s probably not this one, per say. But it would have to be a spot where – because we’re a team, first and foremost – so it would have to be something like, as a teammate, and this is a very amateur wrestling mindset, as a teammate, you’re never going to deny a teammate a shot. If they earn it. So it would have to be one of these things.”
It’s been almost two years since The Baddest Woman On The Planet was seen on WWE TV and at present, her future remains up in the air.
