Former UFC fighter Paige VanZant made the jump over to professional wrestling earlier this year when she signed with All Elite Wrestling, competing in her first match back at AEW Double or Nothing, where she teamed with Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page to defeat Sammy Guevara, Frankie Kazarian and Tay Conti.
Paige has not featured on AEW television for several months, as she was preparing to make her return to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship against Charisa Sigala at BKFC 27 on August 20.
However, MMA Junkie has reported that VanZant’s fight has been pulled from the event, with the reported plan being to book the fight on October 15.
Taking to Twitter to comment on the rescheduling, Paige VanZant posted a statement, expressing how she was displeased with the fight being pulled from the event.
“THIS IS OUT OF MY CONTROL!!! I WENT AN [ENTIRE] CAMP AND WEIGHT CUT TO BE PULLED A WEEK OUT!!!! I DID NOT PULL FROM MY FIGHT!!!! I WAS PULLED! I AM PISSED OFF AND HEARTBROKEN! I [WORKED] MY F*CKING ASS OFF TO BE PULLED A WEEK BEFORE I AM SUPPOSED TO COMPETE!!!!!!”
Paige currently boasts a 1-0 undefeated record in AEW for 2022 so far, with the cancelled fight set to be her first fight of 2022.
