Paige VanZant is being linked to a potential move to the WWE after completing the final fight of her UFC contract.
The 26-year-old competed in the final fight of her UFC contract on the Saturday July 11 showing of UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi. VanZant has made it known on multiple occasions that she is not happy with the pay she has been receiving from the organization, she claims she makes more money posting selfies on Instagram.
The WWE initially attempted to bring in VanZant for their Summerslam 2016 event, however the UFC wanted VanZant to fight at the same time so the appearance never came to fruition. VanZant met with Stephanie McMahon in 2018 and has always had good things to say about the WWE during media interviews.
“I also think the WWE is an amazing organisation and it’s a very athletic entertainment industry which would suit me. There’s probably huge potential for a crossover down the line and of course I’m a big fan of what they do, so it would be great to be a part of.” VanZant said of the possibility of a WWE crossover.
Prior to and after the broadcast of Paige VanZant’s recent fight, fans and popular reporters such as WWE’s Renee Young speculated on if the Dancing With The Stars runner-up may decide to join the WWE now that her UFC contract is up.
