Shayna Baszler on Difference Between MMA And Wrestling, Asuka on Her Match With Emma, Kurt Angle Talks Possible Women's Elimination Chamber Match

- Shayna Baszler spoke briefly with the Argus Leader and talked about one of the big differences between MMA and pro wrestling. While in MMA, fighters block out the crowd, it's the opposite in wrestling.

"In MMA, you're trained to tune the audience out. In sports entertainment, you're trained to feed off what the audience is thinking and feeling," Baszler said. "There's a lot more emphasis about making the crowd feel certain emotions about certain things. In sports entertainment, you can take your time and digest what's going on along with the audience. It's really learning that you don't have to be in this panic mode."

- During a Q&A with fans on his Facebook, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle was asked why we haven't seen a women's Elimination Chamber match yet. Angle simple responded, "Patience. You Will." Over the past year, we've seen other firsts in the division: Sasha Banks take on Charlotte in Hell in a Cell, along with the women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

- On November 22 at TLC, Asuka will be making her main roster debut and will be taking on Emma. Emma won that spot this week on Raw in a Fatal 5 Way Elimination Match against Sasha Banks, Alicia Fox, Dana Brooke, and Bayley. Using WWE 2K18, Asuka tweeted out that she's already defeated her opponent.
