During the February 25th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown, Shotzi had her first match since the 2022 Royal Rumble in a losing effort to Sasha Banks. Shotzi hasn’t appeared on WWE television since and she only had three non-televised matches during the month of March.
Steve Carrier of RingsideNews.com noted the following regarding Shotzi not being in a storyline leading up to Wrestlemania 38…
“She wasn’t booked in the Mania build, because she wasn’t ‘in the mix.’ Shotzi is ‘in good standing’ and ‘everyone likes her.’ There is no heat on Shotzi either.”
“Triple H was also very much behind her push in WWE NXT, so there’s that too.”
Shotzi has been dealing with lower back pain issues in recent months.
We've been getting emails every week about Shotzi Blackheart. Okay, this is all we know.
She wasn't booked in the Mania build, because she wasn't "in the mix." Shotzi is "in good standing" and "everyone likes her." There is no heat on Shotzi either.
Hopefully, that helps.
