The blood and guts moment on WWE television made people Google search for Gangrel. Becky Lynch also saw the vampire references as she said that you can just call her Becky The Vampire Slayer.
Shayna Baszler saw this little video from The Man. The former NXT Women’s Champion wasn’t very amused by Lynch’s new nickname.
Lol ok, Buffy. But living in make-believe won’t stop #Reality
This storyline might get very real if The Queen Of Spades has her way. We have a few more weeks for this storyline to build and it already started with a very attention grabbing segment.

Shayna Baszler Responds To Becky Lynch’s ‘Vampire Slayer’ Comment
Shayna Baszler drew some inspiration from a WWE Hall Of Famer when she attacked Becky Lynch and bit her neck on Raw last night.
Dave Meltzer noted that the bite seemed to be inspired by Paul Heyman, who was a huge fan of Classy Freddie Blassie. Meltzer said, “this has to be Heyman because one of the guys who Heyman idolized was Freddie Blassie. This was 1970s Freddie Blassie with the biting and the blood and all of that.”
Meltzer was correct about that because Baszler later posted a photo of Blassie biting his opponent during a match from the 70s. It shows that angles that were done decades ago can still have an impact today if they are done correctly.
As previously noted, this was the set up for Baszler challenging Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania. Baszler is now officially part of the main roster.
