After debuting on Raw last week, Raw Underground returns tonight and according to reliable Twitter account, WrestleVotes, WWE female superstar Shayna Baszler will appear in one of the segments.
The fight club style concept hosted by Shane McMahon, debuted last week and took the viewing audience by surprise last week. It took place what looked like a basement area and saw several superstars such as, Dolph Ziggler, and The Hurt Business mixing it up in fast paced shoot style matches with a number of unidentified and debuting combatants.
There were no females in the segments, aside from the ones dancing on stage, but that looks like it will change tonight.
If the Raw Underground segments are sticking around for a while, it makes sense to give existing superstars a reason for being there and to introduce new superstars. When it comes to the current female roster there is no better place to start than former UFC star Baszler.
Used sparingly since WrestleMania, Baszler has reappeared in force in recent weeks to tangle with Nia Jax. No word on who her opponent in Raw Underground will be. WWE have announced that Mickie James will return to Raw tonight. Could she be Baszler’s opponent in this new concept?
