Former UFC star Paige VanZant appeared on tonight’s AEW Dynamite, confronting Brandi Rhodes.
Rhodes and Dan Lambert were in the ring when Lambert introduced VanZant, who immediately came to the ring and attacked Rhodes. The two had to be pulled apart by the AEW women’s locker room as the segment ended.
Rhodes has confronted Dan Lambert and Men of the Year (Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky) in recent weeks. On tonight’s Dynamite, she came out for a promo and was immediately confronted by Lambert. The two ended up hurling insults. Rhodes told Page that the only reason AEW was interested in him was because they wanted to get to Josh Alexander, and also brought up American Top Team’s recent losses. After another derogatory comment by Lambert, Rhodes slapped Lambert, leading to Lambert introducing VanZant.
VanZant, who finished her contract with the UFC in 2020, appeared several times in AEW last year as part of American Top Team’s feud with The Inner Circle.
