Shayna Baszler recently sat down with the New York Post, where she discussed a handful of topics, including her time in NXT, her wrestling style, and her friendship with Ronda Rousey. Check out some of the highlights below:

On her time in NXT: 

If there is something I feel needs to be done there, I’ll go and do what I need to do, Right now, I have this. Plan all the way to the end. That’s one of the laws of power. I have this going on and we’ll see what happens when this is done.

On her wrestling style: 

It’s either you are going to get broke in that ring or you are going to find your way through it. And the people who can’t hack it get weeded out really fast, That’s the world I come from. These girls that come in there and they want to win fans and get people to ooh and ahh. It’s like, people can go and watch fireworks and ooh and ahh. They’re not going to remember the fireworks show at the end, but you know they are going to remember when someone’s arm is gross and hanging off their body.

On her friendship with Ronda Rousey:

I am glad that it’s not something that WWE has like forced down people’s throats, I’m not afraid. It’s not that I want to hide the fact that Ronda’s my friend. I don’t. But at the same time, I busted my ass just as hard as anyone else to do this, so I’m glad that people can see it.
