Gangrel has been hard at work training Paige VanZant for her AEW run. Paige has already appeared on AEW television and is currently feuding with Tay Conti. Gangrel recently revealed that VanZant isn’t the only female MMA star he’s working with.

The vampiric former WWE superstar said things are going very well in VanZant’s training. She’s “ghosted” him a few times in recent memory, but she will be “back in the mix” soon. There is also another woman who he cannot yet name that he thinks has huge potential. Gangrel shared the tidbit with The Wrestling Inc. Daily.

“Yes, one of them is Paige Van Zant, although she’s ghosted on me for a few days. But she’ll be back in the mix. She’s definitely one of them. Then there’s another lady, I don’t think I can mention her name yet, until she gets out of the contract she’s in right now. But she definitely looks like she’ll be popping up somewhere, one of the big companies soon.”

Ronda Rousey initially opened the door for female MMA stars to make the crossover to pro wrestling. Ronda gained insane fame as a UFC star. Once the wins started drying up, she was able to make a successful transition.


Paige VanZant is already slated to be a huge star in wrestling. Gangrel also said the other woman he is training has a great deal of passion. She walked away from her MMA career to wrestle.

Time will tell who the mystery MMA fighter is. Gangrel seems extremely confident about her prospects. If he is to be believed, we will know soon.
