WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is reportedly not sold on Shayna Baszler as a top heel Superstar yet.
As we’ve noted, Baszler has a big fan in RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman and there has been talk of giving her a significant push. At one point there were plans for Baszler to win the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble Match, but she was eliminated by current WWE NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair instead. Baszler was also scheduled to win the Women’s Money In the Bank briefcase a few weeks ago, but plans were changed and Asuka won.
Now word is that Vince has apparently changed his mind on Baszler again, according to Paul Davis of WrestlingNews. It was noted that Baszler will eventually move into the RAW Women’s Title picture this year, but Vince is still not 100% sold on her as a top heel yet.
There was no timeframe given on Baszler’s big push to the title. She just defeated Natalya two weeks in a row, winning a Submission Match this week on RAW. It’s believed that Nia Jax will get the next title shot from RAW Women’s Champion Asuka, but Baszler could be the challenger for around SummerSlam time, depending on Vince changing his mind again.
Stay tuned for updates on Baszler’s future and the RAW Women’s Title chase.
