Paige VanZant is All Elite!
Prior to AEW Revolution, Dan Lambert negotiated a deal with Tony Khan that would see VanZant sign with AEW if Scorpio Sky was given a TNT Championship Match. Both parties agreed and Sky’s match and Paige’s contract signing were set for the March 9 episode of Dynamite.
During tonight's episode, Sky defeated Guevara to become the new TNT Champion. Paige got involved during the bout, attacking Tay Conti after she tried to impede Ethan Page from interfering in the match. After the bell, she delivered another kick to Conti's head and left her laying in the middle of the ring with Sammy. She proceeded to pull out her AEW contract and signed it on top of Tay.
