It’s been months since there was any real talk of UFC star Paige VanZant making her way to WWE but that talk is back thanks to an interview she gave to TMZ:
“Yes, that is definitely something I’m interested in. I love the WWE. I think I would for sure be a good WWE Diva, for sure. No, we’ll see. If that opportunity comes I will definitely go for it. If the knock comes onto my door, I’m taking it. I love WWE. I would love it. I have the personality for it. Yeah, but, you know, when the time is right.”
She’s scheduled for a fight later on this evening at UFC Fight Night: Stephens vs. Choi and her schedule clears up after that. It’s possible, then, she could do something for WrestleMania this year, and even be ready in time for Royal Rumble, assuming WWE wanted to do business that quickly.
She was rumored for SummerSlam last year, however, and nothing came of that. If Ronda Rousey comes in — and she also mentions working with her in the above interview — that could lessen interest in VanZant.
As always, stay tuned.
