Shayna Baszler (born August 8, 1980) is an American professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist, currently signed to WWE where she performs in their developmental territory NXT, where she is the current NXT Women's Champion in her first reign. She was trained by former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett.

Baszler gained recognition for popularizing a particular hammerlock submission set-up while on her back; a set-up which she has used to defeat many fighters, including Roxanne Modafferi. In an audio interview with Jordan Breen on the Sherdog Radio Network, she dubbed the submission, which she created in training, as the "Shwing."

Under Billy Robinson, Baszler is the only certified female catch wrestler in the United States. As of April 2015, Baszler is ranked the #32 women's bantamweight mixed martial artist in the world, according to Fight Matrix. She has an MMA record of 15 wins and 11 losses, with 13 wins by submission.

Martial arts background and persona[edit]

Baszler, a Khun Kru in the Muay Thai boxing association and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu brown belt, began incorporating catch wrestling into her MMA training. This proved to be somewhat difficult because she could not train with Barnett in Southern California, so Barnett wrote her a syllabus and a video teaching the step-by-step secrets of catch wrestling and how to improve her verbal skills.[3] Barnett also suggested that Baszler carry an electric guitar to the cage to show that she was outspoken. Baszler reluctantly agreed, and the guitar has become a signature of her rock star-like persona.

Barnett began calling Baszler "The Queen of Spades" due to her card tricks, which is her nickname today. Her card magic can also be related to her submission magic. She is sometimes labeled the "submission magician," confusing commentators with her creativity. Baszler refers to her fans as the "Queen's Army."[3]

At NXT Takeover Chicago Shayna Baszler defeated Nikki Cross to retain her NXT Women's Championship by technical submission.

Personal life[edit]

Baszler was born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the daughter of Skip and Margaret Baszler. Her father is of German descent, while her mother is of Chinese descent. Baszler majored in religion at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Kansas before beginning her mixed martial arts training.

Baszler was a key spokesperson in the movement to create a South Dakota athletic commission for combat sports. She once delivered a speech that touched opposing Rep. Steve Hickey, who once labeled MMA as the "child porn" of sports. After visiting Baszler at the Next Edge Academy of Martial Arts, the training place of Baszler, as well as other mixed martial arts fighters and practitioners, Hickey stated he regretted his analogy as it detracted from his point which, for him, remained true.

Baszler is also a coach for the South Dakota-based roller derby team, the Sioux Falls Roller Dollz. She is a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).[3]
