• Big Debut Planned For Next Week’s RAW
The Wrestling Observer recently noted that former two time NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler is expected to move to RAW soon:
“Shayna Baszler will be a regular on RAW shortly. She is leaving NXT and this has been planned for a long time, probably close to a year so the thing about not wanting to transfer stars in NXT to the main roster and give the idea NXT is developmental or a stepping stone rather than a third brand doesn’t apply to her.”
Brad Shepard then noted that Baszler is set to make her official RAW debut on next week’s show:
“According to a source in WWE, Shayna Baszler is scheduled to appear on RAW this Monday in Ontario, California.”
Baszler is currently scheduled to face Becky Lynch for the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36.
Speaking of Becky, she will defend the RAW Women’s Championship against WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Asuka on next week’s RAW.
