That’s getting a little serious. One of the biggest moments of the year saw Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch announce that she was pregnant, meaning that she would be vacating the title. This changed everything around for the Raw Women’s division and a lot of WWE as a whole. It was a very cool moment for a lot of people, but that wasn’t the case for everyone.
There are very few people who came to the main roster with such a reputation as Shayna Baszler. She had held the NXT Women’s Title for more combined days than anyone in history and had seemed ready to be heading to the main roster for a long time. Baszler unsuccessfully challenged Lynch for the Raw Women’s Title at WrestleMania 36, which put her in a bit of a bad mood. She let that be known this week.
Baszler was a guest on this week’s edition of the Bump and discussed her thoughts on Lynch’s pregnancy. During the interview, Baszler called Lynch irresponsible and her pregnancy garbage, saying Lynch should take care of her responsibilities with the division. Baszler also said that if Lynch was her daughter, she would hit Lynch for not making a smart decision. Lynch is scheduled to be out of the ring for at least a year due to her pregnancy.
It was a rather heated statement. Check out the appearance plus Baszler vs. Lynch:
Opinion: This is the kind of older school heel statement that you don’t hear enough of these days. Yes this was taking it to another level and that’s not a bad thing. Sometimes you need someone who comes off as nasty and it wouldn’t make sense for Baszler to be out there being all happy for Lynch. Baszler cares about titles and Lynch walking away from the title situation wouldn’t sit well for her. I liked this and could go for more realistic comments like them.
What did you think of Baszler’s comments? Will she ever be Women’s Champion? Let us know in the comments below.
