NXT Star Appearing On Monday's Raw, Expected To Join Brand Full Time (SPOILERS)

Who is it?

Though WWE has not confirmed it themselves, multiple sources have claimed that a prominent figure from NXT is set to appear on this Monday's episode of Raw from Ontario, CA. The appearance could have WrestleMania implications.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider has reported that Shayna Baszler is scheduled to appear on this Monday's broadcast. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has additionally claimed that Baszler will be a regular part of Raw going forward.

"Shayna Baszler will be a regular on Raw shortly," wrote Meltzer. "She is leaving NXT and this has been planned for a long time, probably close to a year."

Meltzer also notes in this week's WON that, "she’ll be working with the company’s biggest women’s star, Becky Lynch," presumably setting up a match for WrestleMania 36.

Baszler appeared in the 2020 Women's Royal Rumble match, entering at number 30 and scoring eight eliminations before coming in second to Charlotte Flair.

Lynch, meanwhile, is scheduled to defend the Raw Women's title against Asuka on this Monday's edition of Raw.
