WWE star Shayna Baszler 'pulled off TV by Vince McMahon and RAW future up-in-air over issues with her MMA-style'

SHAYNA BASZLER has reportedly been pulled off WWE TV by Vince McMahon due to her MMA fighting style.

The former UFC star, 39, has been out of action since her appearance on Monday Night Raw on May 12.

According to WrestlingNews, McMahon did not approve of her MMA style being used in the wrestling ring.

The WWE chief made the decision to axe her following her win over Natalya on Raw.

She spent 549 days as the NXT Women's Champion during her two reigns at the top.

The 39-year-old American, who is best friends with Ronda Rousey, was a UFC star before she switched to wrestling in 2017.

Baszler was trained in mixed martial arts by former UFC fighter Josh Barnett.

She had a total of 26 fights including 15 wins and 11 losses.

When she decided to try her luck at wrestling, she said: "I'm looking forward to getting out there and twisting limbs off and breaking bodies."

Her future as a fighter remains up the air following McMahon's bold decision.
