Despite their appearances at WrestleMania 36, Shayna Baszler and Bianca Belair are both still on the WWE NXT roster as of this writing.


We noted after WrestleMania 36 Night Two that Baszler and RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch both indicated that their feud would be continuing, despite Becky's win. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that there are plans for the Baszler vs. Lynch feud to continue.

The finish of the Baszler vs. Belair match was reportedly done to protect Baszler. It wasn't clear if Baszler vs. Lynch will continue into the next WWE pay-per-view, Money In the Bank on May 10, but WrestleMania 36 wasn't the last we've seen of these two going at it.


Regarding Belair, it wasn't actually reported that she will be called up to the main roster with RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits, but it was speculated on Observer Radio as the call-up has been planned for some time. As noted, Belair made her second WrestleMania appearance on Night Two as she took out Zelina Vega after Vega attacked Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins. The attack came after Ford and Dawkins retained their titles over Austin Theory and Angel Garza.

This was Belair's second WrestleMania appearance as she previously competed in the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 in 2018. Belair is married to Ford.

So to some it up:

  • Becky and Shayna may continue their feud. It may or may not be the next feud for Becky, but they will feud again in the future. OH REALLY?
  • Belair might be getting called up but may not be, but her call-up has been planned for a little while so it might be a call-up for Belair.
Great journalism there.

Yep, that's the plan until it changes then it wasn't the plan because the plan changed by changing.

Well, he was right on the Belair thing, she just showed up on RAW during a street profits match.

Anyone with half a goddamn brain could have predicted she would show up with the street profits the night after saving them.

I'm sorry, but why are finishes at Wrestlemania being done to "protect" performers for ongoing stories instead of being definitive finishes to storylines? Like, why?

I understand if it happens for a specific scenario like Seth cashing in at Mania and stealing the championship at WM31, or when Trish turned heel on Jericho at WM20. But why start a storyline and not end it at Mania? If there isn't a twist that occurs at the event to keep the story going, it just seems like everything's on bad timing.
