Shayna Baszler is an American mixed martial artist who used to work for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). She is also a professional wrestler who works for World Wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) developmental brand NXT.
She is best known for her modified kimura handlock, which she calls “Shwing” and has used to beat several of her opponents, including former FFF Women’s Lightweight Champion Roxanne Modafferi. Baszler is from South Dakota. Shayna has a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is a Khun Kru in the Muay Thai boxing association. She started learning catch wrestling from MMA legend Josh Barnett, who called her “The Queen of Spades.”

Who Is Shayna Baszler’s Husband?
Shayna Baszler keeps her private life pretty quiet for someone who is in the public eye. However, in a podcast from 2013, she said that she is bisexual. Does she have a boyfriend or a girlfriend?
Baszler said she was dating a woman at the time, but she told the host of MMA Roasted that a person’s gender doesn’t affect whether she likes them or not. The UFC star at the time said, “I’ve done both, and I’m currently dating a woman.” But I’m not the kind of person who would paint herself black or white. I’m just in that place right now.
She also said, “It’s more about the person. I’m attracted to someone as a person before I’m attracted to them sexually. I’m not one of those people who can just pick someone out of the crowd and have a good time with them because they’re hot.”
But on January 24, 2017, she gave a vague update by writing on Instagram that she lived with other female WWE wrestlers and that she was “perfectly fine” with her living situation.
On the other hand, Shayna said that Roger Huerta would be her husband in a tweet from 2013. But that seems to be a lie since nothing else after that post connects Shayna to him. She might have been talking about Roger as the ideal partner.
She might be single, or she might be with someone in secret. Who Know? Let’s wait until star tells us something new before we can watch her fight.
