Paige VanZant is one of the most well-known names in the world of MMA. This is despite the fact that her track record in the world of combat sports isn’t all that good. VanZant might also be taking a break from AEW soon as well.
The former UFC fighter recently signed with Tony Khan’s company and since then has been training in the art of professional wrestling. She was part of AEW programming long before she signed a contract as well.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Paige VanZant might have to take a break from AEW right after signing with the company. This is because she will be competing in a Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship bout soon and will take time off to prepare for it.
VanZant wasn’t at TV this week and may not be a regular for much longer since she just signed for a BKFC fight on 7/9 in London. No opponent has been named but her fight is to be the main event. She is 0-2 in her previous BKFC fights since BKFC is boxing with no gloves and her strengths have never been her hands. But this was the company that offered her the most money and wanted to build the company around her.
It was already a known fact she was going to work in the promotion after signing with AEW. We’ll have to see how her storyline will develop on AEW television once Paige VanZant returns.
