Gangrel Talks Paige VanZant’s AEW In-Ring Debut, Says She Can Be A Big Wrestling Star One Day

Former WWE Star Gangrel recently appeared on the "Extreme Life of Matt Hardy" podcast, where he spoke about his thoughts on MMA Star Paige VanZant's AEW in-ring debut at last Sunday night's AEW Double Or Nothing PPV and how he was concerned and worried about the MMA Star because of the amount of time she trained for the match.

Gangrel said:

“I’ve only seen bits and clips of it. I was a little concerned because of the amount of time she trained for a match. I was worried. I suppose it was 50/50 on that. I didn’t see it live, I only saw clips, but I was very concerned. She has a lot of talent and I think she can be a long-term star, she really is good at everything she does. When you got thrown in a match, a 6-Man, it was weird because the heels are faces and Sammy went into it, he was originally a babyface but they’re booing him because he’s making out with Tay.”

Gangrel also talked about how Paige VanZant is a good investment for AEW and how she is going to be a big pro wrestling star one day.

Gangrel said:

“So it was such a weird chemistry and atmosphere, just a really weird angle. I’m kind of glad that all ended because it gave me anxiety. It was just one of those weird things. So for her to be in the middle of that I really would have liked for her to have more time training, but I believe she’s a good investment and she’s going to be a star one day if she rides it out.”
