Paige VanZant Says She Was Doing Her Initial AEW Appearances For Free, Talks Training



MMA fighter and AEW star Paige VanZant recently spoke with ESPN about her AEW contract allowing her to continue doing MMA fights, how her training is going so far, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On her contract allowing her to do MMA: “I do want to do MMA still and I do see my future in MMA. I’m 27 years old. I’ve just been fortunate enough that my career got kick-started at a very young age.”

On getting into pro wrestling with AEW: “The more I got involved, the more I loved it. I just realized I was meant to be a part of the show. I wanted to be one of the wrestlers for them and I knew I would be really good at it.”

On not having trained yet: “My only frustration so far with my whole pro-wrestling journey is I would show up and I said, ‘Hey, I want to jump off the ropes tonight. I want to slam someone through a table tonight — someone is getting slammed through a table.’ They’re like, uh, you should probably train first. My only concern is they don’t let me do the crazy stuff right away. I want to go in there and I want to do all the crazy stuff. I want to fully immerse myself in this world.”

On what she brings to AEW: “I think I bring a lot to the table. I have a whole different audience that doesn’t necessarily follow [AEW] yet. I have the pro fighting audience — pro MMA and pro boxing. I think I bring a lot of value with my name brand.”
