• UFC Star Shows Interest In Working With WWE Again, Says She Had Talks With Stephanie McMahon
During an appearance at the Global Tech Conference Web Summit in Portugal, UFC fighter Paige VanZant once again showed interest in signing with WWE down the line.
Below is what she said:
“I’m not ready to leave the UFC just yet. I love being a professional fighter and I still have a long career ahead of me. I also think the WWE is an amazing organization 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. I got the opportunity to talk to Stephanie for a little bit on Tuesday which was great.”
