Paige VanZant believes she put on an impressive performance during her debut this past Sunday at AEW Double Or Nothing. The former UFC star won her first match this past Saturday night in at the kick-off to All Elite Wrestling‘s first PPV event, defeating Tay Conti, Frankie Kazarian, and Sammy Guevara.

“I’m feeling great, I went out there, we got the win … I showed everybody I’m meant to be a pro wrestler, too,” she said. “I’m only going to get better. I just started training pro wrestling, but you got to see how quickly I picked up pro wrestling moves, and I showed all the girls in the division they’ve got somebody to look out for.”
VanZant has always kept busy throughout her career, whether that means competing in mixed martial arts, bare-knuckle fighting or appearing on “Dancing With The Stars.” She says that “Everyone keeps asking me when I’m gonna pick a lane,” but because she has a “good team,” VanZant feels she doesn’t need to do that, instead planning to “be good at absolutely everything I do.”
The date of her next in-ring performance has not been confirmed as of yet, but she is enthusiastic about being a part of AEW and believes it will be an opportunity for pay-per-view guests. She has been training with Gangrel, but had previously stated revulsion for the fact that “they don’t let me do the crazy stuff right away.” Her only frustration is that.
“I hope soon,” VanZant said when asked when her next match might take place. “I came out of this match unscathed, I have zero injuries, I put on a dominant performance, I can’t wait for my solo match.”
