Baszler tuned into the fight and had her opinion on the KO, calling it the ‘perfect set up.’ She said, It wasn’t even just a wild right. He set it up. Had been going to the body, faked it to draw Woodley’s lead hand, landed that overhand perfect. #PaulWoodley2

Many fans in the comments tried to call it fake, and lucky. However, Shayna shut them all down.

She further called out the people who were criticizing the fight. Tom Taylor, an MMA writer, tweeted out, The saddest part of a Jake Paul fight week is when he wins and gets called out by dozens of former UFC fighters that most people have completely forgotten about. All broke, all hoping to win the lottery. #PaulWoodley2″

The former NXT Women’s champion retweeted the tweet, agreeing with his words. She is an experienced fighter who’s been in many fights herself. Therefore, her defending Jake Paul would definitely mean something.

Top Dolla was released from WWE along with every Hit Row member. Reportedly, the reason for his release was that he was getting a lot of heat backstage at NXT. It rubbed people the wrong way, according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The same heat followed him when Francis got called to SmackDown in the WWE Draft 2021. Vince McMahon also saw AJ as the star of Hit Row.
