Shayna Baszler is changing brands, as WWE SmackDown drafted the former NXT Women’s Champion during the second night of the WWE Draft.
This move came shortly after a match in which she absolutely dominated Dana Brooke. “The Queen of Spades” then got into a brief staredown with Doudrop. She came to ringside when Baszler was getting ready to brutally stomp on Brooke’s arm while it was trapped against the steel steps.
Xia Li has been a mainstay in the world of NXT, but she’ll be taking her talents to SmackDown. Li was one of the many Superstars drafted by the blue brand during the second night of the WWE Draft on Monday. This move marks Li’s call-up to the WWE main roster. D
Li made her debut in 2019 at WWE’s Royal Rumble, and she appeared on NXT the following the week. Throughout her time with the brand, Li had various feuds, with her most recent storyline coming against Mercedes Martinez; she defeated the veteran competitor at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. In recent weeks, Li has been working in dark matches before WWE SmackDown.
