On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Bully Ray praised Shayna Baszler’s current booking on WWE RAW.
Ray noted that Baszler was poorly utilized by WWE in favor of Ronda Rousey in the past, and that the creative’s new direction for the former NXT Women’s Champion will be better for both her and the company.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the mistakes made with Baszler previously: “There’s no reason that Shayna Baszler should have ever been utilized the way she was utilized. That was, I guess, the poor woman’s version of Ronda Rousey. There’s no reason why you just needed Ronda, you could’ve had Ronda and Shayna the whole time. Shayna’s extremely credible.”
On how WWE can use her effectively going forward: “Hopefully, they give her that level of protection now, this way they can have a killer on their hands. Ride that wave of I’m the one who got rid of Ronda Rousey from the WWE and turn her into something more credible than she’s been since the day she’s got here.”
