Former UFC Star Paige VanZant reveals there has been communication with WWE
“I get asked about WWE a lot,” VanZant said. “I think it would be something I’d be very good at. Because I have the best of both worlds. I was a Dancer, I used to like the entertainment and showmanship side of it… and then the combat sports world, obviously goes into the WWE. But I don’t know that it’s something I could do, both at the same time.
“I feel like I would want to do that 100 percent. So maybe it’s something that after I’m done fighting in a cage and in a ring, that kind of stuff, maybe I’ll go over to there. But we’ll see, the door’s definitely open.”
VanZant said that she and the WWE have been in contact with each other and she would pursue a career once she finds more free time in her schedule.
“There is definitely a path. And communication is actually there sometimes, so we’re able to communicate and show our interests with each other,” she added. “Once there’s a little more free time in my schedule, I think that’s something I would really like to pursue.”
VanZant is scheduled to make her Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship debut on February 5, 2021 against Britain Hart in the main event of BKFC 16 in Tampa, Florida.
