Steph De Lander, formerly known as Persia Pirotta during her tenure in WWE, has emerged as a prominent figure in the independent wrestling scene, competing in promotions such as TNA Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and Game Changer Wrestling alongside Matt Cardona. Her contractual status with TNA has now been revealed.

According to Fightful Select, Steph De Lander, who has recently been making waves on TNA Wrestling, remains a free agent despite her increasing appearances on TNA TV. Having competed in high-profile matches, such as the Knockouts Championship match at TNA Rebellion against Jordynne Grace, De Lander has impressed audiences with her performances.

Despite her consistent involvement with TNA, De Lander recently informed Fightful Select’s Sean Ross Sapp that she is still a free agent and open to exploring various opportunities. She is expected to participate in TNA’s upcoming Under Siege show and Albany tapings, with the potential to solidify her position within the company depending on the outcomes.

De Lander’s versatility has been evident through her work across various wrestling promotions, including TNA/IMPACT, MLW, ROH, and AEW, following her release from WWE in 2022. Although Matt Cardona, her tag team partner and manager, recently sustained a torn pec injury that will keep him sidelined for several months, De Lander continues to pursue her career.


Her openness to signing with a company under the right circumstances indicates that she is carefully considering her future in professional wrestling, making her a sought-after talent on the independent circuit.
