Shayna Baszler and I have known each other for years, and we have been gaming together for years. As many hours as we’ve spent on the grappling mat together, we’ve spent gaming together. One of the first games we ever played was Pride Fighting Championships on the PlayStation 2. We spent hours creating our characters!
We have played countless games against each other and she was the one of the ones who convinced me to game for a living. It’s fitting to interview here and go down memory lane on some of our gaming – of which there are many more interviews to come.
