The Squared Circle Sirens website is reporting that Shayna Baszler, the former MMA fighter and big friend of Ronda Rousey, is getting a WWE tryout at the WWE Performance Center.

Baszler is a huge wrestling fan and is often seen ringside when WWE is in the Los Angeles area along with fellow 4 Horsewomen members. Baszler, who goes by the nickname The Queen of Spades, is also friends with Nattie Neidhart and many women on the roster.

Baszler has fought for Elite XC, Strikeforce, Invicta and also the UFC. She holds a record of 15-10, losing her last three matches, two of them in the UFC against Amanda Nunes and Bethe Correia.

She has been wrestling on the indie circuit for the past year and earlier this month she defeated Heidi Lovelace to win Absolute Intense Wrestling’s Women’s Championship. After her win, she was joined by Ronda Rousey celebrating her win.
