Reason Why Shayna Baszler Lost To Becky Lynch
One of the things that has been talked about a lot after Night 1 of WrestleMania was that Shayna lost to Becky Lynch. However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer said that was nothing to worry about as this was something that happened from time to time and did not mean that Shayna was being buried. He pointed out that WWE kept Shayna strong and that they did not want to change the title, so this was a way to keep things consistent without hurting Shayna, and this is not the end of the feud.
“In this case, it was like, do we need to change the title now? No, we don’t need to. It was a quick win. It wasn’t like she beat her with the Disarmher, she beat him with the powerslam or anything like that. Whenever you do a finish like that, the idea is to protect the heel while the babyface sneaks over. That’s exactly what this finish is. It came across to me that this was hardly the finale. This is just the first match and they didn’t want to change the title and it was a way to kind of like get a win without hurting Shayna. That’s clearly what the design was. The basic gist is that they didn’t want to change the title and this is what they did and they didn’t want to do a DQ.”Dave Meltzer
