Shayna Baszler Reveals ‘The Difference Between MMA & Wrestling’


– Shayna Baszler spoke 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.

Baszler said: “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.”
