UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant, who lost to “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson during Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night on FOX event, has confirmed that her management team has taken part in talks with WWE and that she would love to “transfer over” to the company once her mixed martial arts career comes to an end.
VanZant also said she she would love to “switch things up” in WWE by working as a heel, and also stated that The Rock is someone that she would love to work with. She also had the following to say:
“It’s definitely something I see myself competing in, I think it’s an amazing organisation and I would love to transfer into the WWE. Right now I am making a run at the UFC and I’m still really strong and confident in what I’m doing now but eventually, yeah I’d love to transfer over”
There had previously been talk about VanZant appearing at the recent WWE SummerSlam event; however, those plans never happened.
