Shayna Baszler has made it no secret that she’s a huge professional wrestling fan, much to the chagrin to some of the more uptight MMA fans out there. For many of us, though, it’s cool to see a professional fighter who is so public about her love for pro wrestling, especially considering how visible of a figure she is in the world of MMA.
It doesn’t hurt that when it comes down to it, Shayna really knows her stuff with pro wrestling. We caught up with her to ask her who her favorite pro wrestlers of all time were and her list is pretty interesting. Sure, we get Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair, who doesn’t love them? But Dean Malenko? Watch and listen as Shayna explains why those are her favorite wrestlers and also what she chooses to bring over from pro wrestling into MMA.
