Paige VanZant Recalls Past Meeting With WWE

Paige VanZant talks about her journey to pro wrestling, including a past meeting with WWE.

AEW star and MMA fighter Paige VanZant recently spoke to Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate on the Throwing Down podcast, and spoke about her journey to become a professional wrestler. 

"I did know my career would take me to pro wrestling eventually. I wasn't sure what venue that would be, if it would be WWE or AEW. I've been a fan of both, I made it out about a year ago to WWE headquarters. They had a different plan for what they wanted for me. With AEW, I'm so excited they were happy to partner with me and let me continue to fight MMA and do bare knuckle boxing. They're on board to build my career, build me as a wrestler, and let me be myself."

VanZant is currently portraying a heel on AEW, as part of Dan Lambert's stable. Most recently, they got into a confrontation with Wardlow during his failed attempt to take the TNT Championship Scorpio Sky. (It was later revealed that the group had been paid by MJF to attack his former bodyguard.)
