YouTube sensation turned boxer Jake Paul defeated former wrestling champion Ben Asken on Saturday and WWE and half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler isn’t too happy about it. On social media, the “submission magician” expressed her disgust at the fight. Paul defeated Asken in a shocking and surprising knockout in the first round. Baszler wrote on Twitter: “The fact that there is more news about PaulXAskren than there is about WhittakerXGastelum shows you that it is all professional wrestling. Everything. Just enjoy it.” This WWE Hall of Famer “lost his mind” in the Jake Paul fight.
She would also add: “Who is even talking about fake / real?” in response to a fan who didn’t understand his comparison. WWE and WCW legend Justin Credible would also join the conversation, exclaiming that the event was the “fake shit you’ve ever seen” in a separate tweet:
“Jake Paul fights what is the fake shit I’ve ever seen. Even by Pro Wrestling standards. I can’t believe people really bet real money on it.
Shayna Baszler recently spoke about this WrestleMania moment. In other Baszler news, during a recent interview with Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, Shayna talks about her experience and time working with Bloodsport’s Josh Barnett with the former Renee Young. Credit to Fightful for the following.
He did not spoil anyone. He is a boy, and you, having met him, will laugh at this, he does not give his compliments easily. He’s not a guy who says “good job” to you every day, but when he says “good job” to you, you feel good.
Baszler continued: “He’s a hard-ass, for sure. I think having someone as experienced as him at the same time, and it still is, where the sport is very heavy in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he was the one who opened the eyes to the fact that catching wrestling, pro wrestling, and MMA all had the same shared history. Obviously, with what I’m doing now, it opened up a whole different world to me than the way I’ve been seeing it before. .
The fact that there is more news on PaulXAskren than on WhittakerXGastelum shows you that it is all professional wrestling. Everything. Just enjoy it.

Bobby Lashley ‘ready to lose’ the WWE title?
Recently, on the most recent episode of “The Nitty Gritty Dirt Show” on RussosBrand.com, Billi Bhatti sat down with former WWE writer Vince Russo. The two talked about a vast panorama of everything to do with professional wrestling. Here, the two discussed how the original plan for WWE WrestleMania 37 was for McIntyre to become WWE Champion, defeating Bobby Lashley in the process. This “embarrassing” mistake by Drew McIntyre was recently leaked on Raw.
Additionally, Bhatti discusses how the plan went so far that Drew was considering sending family members to countries that do not have a COVID-19 flag, such as Denmark and Mexico, and then to the United States to see him win the title. However, as Bhatti explains, Drew soon canceled this and plans were changed. Wrestling-Edge transcribed Bhatti’s comments below.
Bhatti: I know two weeks before WrestleMania it was still the case with Drew looking for ideas in terms of possibilities of bringing family members there. I remember a conversation where I said there is a way to do it, but you have to take your people to a country without a flag and set it up in fourteen days. So we look at Denmark, Mexico, all these kinds of options, and then the United States. At some point, Drew made the decision not to send family members there, obviously that was the moment that things turned around. When there were ideas to do that, he was still slated to be the WWE Champion.
Adam Cole ‘removed’ from WWE NXT
Adam Cole was not at WWE NXT on Tuesday night as Triple H creatively focused on the return of Bobby Fish, who faced Kyle O’Reilly for the first time since the Undisputed Era split. WWE brings back star after “pedophile” accusation
Fish told O’Reilly, “I have to settle my own accounts. I’ll see you when I see you.”
Karrion Kross will defend his NXT title against Finn Balor in two weeks.
“I really appreciated him reaching out to me,” Kross said recently. YES about Balor after his injury in 2020. “Before that, we were just acquaintances. This was beyond professional and made a huge difference. Then months later, we are in the ring trying to kill ourselves. It’s funny how the universe works. “
“The injury surprised me,” says Kross. “This is not something I wanted to be too public about because I didn’t want people to stray too far from what I was doing. Psychologically, I had to recover, even back in the ring.
“As a performer, I did something so comfortable for so long. Then that accident happened, and I had to overcome those doubts in the back of my mind. The physical part, rebuilding and retraining my shoulder, that was one thing. There was also much more. At first, I couldn’t get dressed. I couldn’t put my socks on. I felt like everything had been affected. “
“I have my own bills to settle. I’ll see you when I see you.” – @theBobbyFish to @KORcombat #WWENXT pic.twitter.com/wXcZyucIcE

Did Vince McMahon “lie” about the unprocessed firing?
Vince McMahon is the CEO of WWE and has the last word in everything that happens in the company, be it related to the production, the stories or the matches in general. Daniel Bryan also apparently offended Vince McMahon in a recent video.
WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett recently spoke on his My World podcast, where he talked about the March 26, 2001 episode of RAW, where he saw Vince McMahon announcing his purchase of WCW. In the opening segment, WWE President Vince McMahon also told fans that former WCW star Jarrett would be “leaving” the company.
It seems that Jeff Jarrett thought this was all real and really believed that McMahon would acquire his WCW contract after the classic segment.
“If you heard that when I was in my mid-thirties, okay, we’ll call it ego, it takes ego to turn this around,” Jarrett said. “I thought and maybe I carried that with me, ‘Vince is going to shoot an angle with me.’ It’s about money. When I heard he went through all this [buying WCW]Who did he choose? I mean, who did he pick?
Jeff Jarrett never returned to WWE until nearly two decades, when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018.
