Shayna Baszler explains why the NXT women’s roster missed the Evolution announcement

Oct 27, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

“They pulled aside the girls the Monday morning of the announcement and were going to fly us to Raw since they wanted NXT representation. We were supposed to be on the stage when Stephanie was making the announcement. We hustled to get to the jet, not a commercial plane. We packed our bags, and since it’s a big to do, I had to get the title shined up, race to the airport which was a thirty to forty-minute drive and when we get there we found out the flight was delayed, and we’re sitting there and it just keeps getting delayed. So, we finally land and we’re told it will take another thirty minutes to fuel up the plane. We know the segment will be the first one, so we decide to do our makeup and get our gear on right there since we’ll need to get off and go straight to TV since it will be the first segment on Raw. So, during the walkthrough the pilot, who was hired by WWE, we’re told he hits his head on a crossbeam of the plane and split open his head and had to get stitches. All this time, we were in contact with the WWE and they finally said it’s not gonna happen, so I had to watch it on TV.”
