Former model and American Mixed Martial Artist, Paige Michelle VanZant who is currently signed to the flyweight division of UFC has expressed her interests in joining WWE as a regular in-ring performer on various occasions following the debut of former UFC Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey back at the Royal Rumble in January, 2018.
In an interview with TMZ Sports in January following rumours regarding Rousey’s debut, VanZant said,
“Yes. That is definitely something that I’m interested in. I love the WWE. I think that I would for sure be a good WWE Diva. We’ll see if that opportunity comes. I would definitely go for it, if they come knocking on my door, I’m taking it. I love WWE, I would love it. I have the personality for it. Yeah, when the time is right.”
VanZant, who was also the runner-up of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016 and won the celebrity edition of “Chopped”, again voiced her desire to compete in WWE, during an interview while in London for UFC Fight Night 127, MMA Junkie reports.
“I’m a fighter first and foremost, but if the opportunity ever came knocking, I’m not one to turn opportunities down. I think it’s an amazing organization, and I’d definitely love to work with them.”
The young Mixed Martial Artist who turns 24 today (March 26, 2018), is keeping her options open for life outside MMA, similar to Ronda Rousey.
