With NXT's big change, everything is "out the window" in regards to plans for NXT stars, as more top stars may be kept there to help the brand. WWE reportedly thought "very, very highly" of Baszler, in part, due to her dominant NXT Women's Title reign, and plans for her on the main roster were "significant."
On yesterday's SmackDown, Baszler ambushed WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley again.
Baszler is scheduled to be the captain of the first-ever women's WarGames on NXT TakeOver: WarGames on November 23. The match lineup is nearly set: Rhea Ripley (Captain), Tegan Nox, Mia Yim, Candice LeRae vs. Baszler (Captain), Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, and a to be announced partner.
