Why Shayna Baszler has been gone from WWE television Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/03/2020 at 08:04 AM
In regards to Shayna Baszler's absence from WWE television, Fightful.com is reporting that she is not sick and it's a matter of the company deciding to not use her in storylines for the time being.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com is reporting that Vince McMahon had already made the decision to stop pushing Baszler while Paul Heyman was still in charge of RAW. It was reported earlier this year that Heyman was high on Baszler but McMahon had his doubts. Meltzer wrote the following:
"Vince also soured on Baszler completely because he never conceptually grasped the style that an MMA fighter should use in pro wrestling and she doesn’t check his buttons when it comes to women in wrestling, so he made the call to remove her push and take her off television."
