Last night at the Survivor Series pay-per-view, Shayna Baszler defeated Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch in the show’s main event.
In the build-up to Survivor Series, Shayna Baszler has been one of the more protected NXT stars, and she was given a big platform to shine on last night’s show.
The match didn’t really connect with the crowd in Chicago, and it has since been reported that Vince McMahon also wasn’t best pleased with how the main event went down.
Despite this, Dave Meltzer is reporting on the Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE higher-ups have big plans for Shayna Baszler on the main roster:
“I don’t know, I mean she could lose [the NXT Women’s Title] to Rhea Ripley and go to the main roster. She should go to the main roster at that point, but they may not be wanting to do that now. I think every hint that I have of later, it’s not like directly told — but, I absolutely have gotten hints about a lot of different things it still seems to indicate to me that Shayna’s wanted on the main roster.”
At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, Shayna Baszler was pinned by Rhea Ripley. Some have speculated that this will lead to a Rhea-Shayna feud where the Australian will capture the NXT Women’s Championship.
Should Baszler drop the NXT Women’s Championship in the coming months on either NXT TV or at a TakeOver event, I expect her to arrive on the main roster a few days later and continue her feud with Becky Lynch.
