Steph De Lander, a rising star in the indie wrestling scene, has made a significant name for herself through her talent and dedication. Since leaving WWE, she has competed in various promotions, including TNA Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and Game Changer Wrestling, often alongside Matt Cardona. Fans have particularly enjoyed her performances in TNA Wrestling.

However, De Lander recently took to Twitter to issue a stark warning about a dubious wrestling promotion named Marco Polo Wrestling. She revealed that the company has been sending emails to female wrestlers, requesting explicit photos under the guise of a hiring process.

Before we send you a contract, we would like to know more about you. Please write about your talents and your creative plans if we hire you. Additionally, we would like to hear any questions you may have or anything else you want to say. We have already seen your work online, so there’s not much to ask about that. However, we would like to know more about your impressions of our promotion.

To get to know you better, we require three photos (one from the front, one from the side, and one from the back, all full body) of you naked and without makeup, as we are adult-themed. We are hiring only for a great team of makeup artists, and we would like your measurements as well for personalized swimsuits and lingerie. We would also appreciate it if you could suggest other names of individuals who could work for us.


If you are interested, please send us an email with the requested information. We hope to hire you due to your remarkable talent for the sport.

Thank you,
Marco Polo Wrestling
