Chris Van Vliet sent the following quotes.

Paige VanZant was invited to visit the WWE Performance Center:
"Yes, I have visited their campus, the Performance Center in Orlando. I was able to go visit and look around and kind of get a sense for what it's all about."

She has been in communication with WWE:
"Communication is actually there sometimes so we're able to communicate and show our interest with each other and once there's a little bit more free time in my schedule I think that's something that I would like to really pursue."

Does she have any interest in working for WWE?
"I do. I get asked about WWE a lot and I do feel like it's something I would be very good at because I kind of have the best of both worlds; I was a dancer where I was used to the entertainment and the showmanship side of it and the combat sports side obviously goes into the WWE. You know, I don't think that it's something that I could do both (Bare Knuckle FC and pro wrestling) at the same time. I feel like I would want to do that 100%, so maybe it's something that after I'm done fighting in a cage and in a ring that maybe I'll go over to there but the door is definitely open."

Ronda Rousey did very well for herself in WWE, becoming one of the first women to main event WrestleMania in 2019. Recently, Ronda reiterated that she hated the travel associated with wrestling

Paige VanZant is set to make her Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship debut tonight at BKFC 16 in Tampa, Florida.
