MMA fighter and AEW star Paige VanZant continues to train with Gangrel to prepare for her official AEW in-ring debut.

During a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” podcast, VanZant commented on Dan Lambert having an influence on her decision to sign with AEW, if there was a bidding war for her services, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Dan Lambert having an influence on her decision to sign with AEW: “[Lambert] was definitely a big part of it, I went with him in a few instances, he’s a big part of AEW. Watching them, I knew my career was going to take me to WWE or AEW, I was watching both of them, huge fan of both, the first AEW show I went to though, the feeling, the audience, the crowd, everything about it, I just knew I belonged and it would be something I’d be really good at. The whole atmosphere of the show they put on is iconic. I knew that was the place for me.”

On if there was a bidding war for her: “Not a bidding war, no. There were different contract details and styles. There were things that AEW, they’re working hand-in-hand with BKFC and letting me be a professional fighter. I still get to be myself. It’s not an exclusive full-time wrestling contract. I’m in AEW and going to wrestle for them, but they’re also letting me be a part of BKFC, so I’m definitely not done boxing and definitely not done fighting. It was an amazing partnership that they’re willing to work with me and all the other things I still want to do.”

On when she expects to make her in-ring debut: “In a perfect world, here in the next few months, honestly. Between the coaches and everybody seeing as quickly as I’m picking it up, I truly believe I’ll be ready to get in there in a month or two.”
