"I'm looking at [competitors] who I think might be my opponents someday. I'm interested in Giulia, and Utami [Hayashishita] uses a technique named after me called Shocking Baisler. She has been to the jiu-jitsu and catch wrestling classes I teach, and I taught her that move," Baszler said.

Baszler also commented on potentially competing in Japan again if, or when, WWE returns to the country. She noted that Japan holds a special place in her career, and she could have the chance to show her growth upon her return.

"I think it's time for me to connect the dots. Japan is the place that recognized me as a professional wrestler, and I think I have a chance to come back as a complete person," Baszler said.

Fightful Select recently confirmed PWInsider's report that WWE is interested in Giulia. More information is available here.

Baszler previously commented on a potential crossover between WWE and STARDOM. Check out her comments here.
