You can find nice things to say even in the Ball Pit.
Ahead of NXT Takeover: WarGames, Fightful was able to speak to NXT star Shotzi Blackheart. We asked her to say nice things about some of her friends...and foes.
Rhea Ripley, Shotzi's WarGames teammate:
"I love Rhea. Like, I love her style. I love her taste in music. I love her attitude. Y’all don’t know this, but she’s hilarious. She’s so much fun to be around. The one time that we tagged together was just so much fun."
Dakota Kai, a WarGames opponent, and longtime rival:
"Dakota Kai. As much as she pisses me off, that girl kicks hard. She is Captain Kick. She’s amazing. She’s amazing in the ring. I really look up to her even though I can’t stand her."
Sasha Banks, who faced Shotzi for the tag titles in 2020:
"I had that one tag match with her and I just really want a singles. She’s someone that I’ve looked up to since the beginning of my wrestling career. Her and Bayley were big inspirations to me."

When asked if she saw the "match" between Sasha and her dog, Shotzi glowed,.
"Yes! Oh, my goodness. As soon I was done watching that, I grabbed my dog and I was like, “We’re gonna wrestle! Let’s go!” The psychology was really great in that match."
Robert Stone, who Shotzi ran over with a tank multiple times:
"He really, really does [make a great sound when you run over him with a tank]. You know what? His suits aren’t that bad either. He has a different one day I see him. I’m gonna guess that he buys them (instead of renting them)."
The pleasantries are going to be in short order this weekend, as Shotzi Blackheart leads the charge inside the WarGames cage.
