Paige VanZant Reveals She Studies Ronda Rousey’s WWE Work AEW/WWE

Paige VanZant looks to make the transition from MMA to pro wrestling and has studied the most famous female fighter to help.

VanZant is the latest AEW recruit after signing with the promotion this month. She is currently training to prepare for her in-ring debut.

Speaking on SiriusXM’s Throwing Down with Renee and Meisha, Paige Van Zant discussed her pro wrestling training, including her studying the work of Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler in WWE.

In regards to her training and what is the hardest part, Van Zant answered:

“Yeah, that is gonna be, honestly, the hardest part is learning to work the microphone, learning to work the room on the microphone, learning to speak in public. I feel like I’ve always done well speaking in public, but all the questions are about me, and it’s pretty easy to just talk about yourself, but in this instance, it’s going out there, and you have to like – I’m going to be calling people out, I’m gonna be talking to other female wrestlers. It’s making it in the entertainment industry as well, but at the same time, I do know luckily I’m going in there I’m still Paige VanZant.”

Van Zant went on to discussing some other MMA athletes that she has studied in preparation for her eventual AEW in-ring debut, saying:

“You know, I’ve been trying to get some ideas and some new moves to use. I’ve been watching everybody. I’ve been watching Ronda. I’ve been watching Shayna for a long time, she’s been wrestling forever. I’ve been watching everybody in WWE and in AEW. I still go to all of the AEW shows, and I just watch in the back and get a sense of what I’ll be doing, just to make sure I’m good at it. So I feel like the more involved I am the more I’ll pick up just from watching.”

As previously mentioned, Paige VanZant also brought up her talks with WWE during this same interview, which you can check out at this link.
