WWE loves to sign athletes from other sports, especially mixed martial arts (MMA). WWE has recently inked former UFC fighters like Ronda Rousey and Matt Riddle to contracts. It looks like they could be in the market for another if the opportunity ever came up. UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant, who has expressed an interest in WWE before, has once again spoken about a possible WWE career.
VanZant was recently interviewed at the global tech conference Web Summit in Portugal and was asked about possibly working with WWE. VanZant said she’s not quite ready to leave fighting, but did note she has a great interest in WWE and respects what the company does. She also said she recently spoke to Stephanie McMahon:
“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.”
