AEW's Paige VanZant says she's 'meant to be a pro wrestler'

PVZ made her in-ring AEW debut at Double or Nothing.

Paige VanZant is happy with her AEW in-ring debut and says she showed everyone that she is "meant to be a pro wrestler."

The 28-year-old was interviewed by The Schmo backstage at AEW Double or Nothing and spoke about her performance on the show. 

"I went out there, we got the win, I feel like I put on an impressive performance. I showed everybody [I'm] meant to be a pro wrestler too," PVZ said. 

While she's happy with how the match went, she continued to say that she's only going to get better. 

"I never give myself a perfect grade. There's always room for improvement. I'm only going to get better. I just started training pro wrestling but you got to see how quickly I picked up pro wrestling moves and I showed all the girls in the division they got somebody to look out for."

PVZ was also pleased to have made her in-ring debut in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. 

"I knew this was the only place I wanted to make my AEW debut. It had to be big and it had to be on pay-per-view. I'm a pay-per-view person, they got to pay me the pay-per-view dollars to show up."

As for when fans can expect her to return to the ring, PVZ said she's hoping to be back soon and is looking forward to wrestling a singles match. 

"I put on a dominant performance. I can't wait for my solo match."
