WWE Reportedly Interested In UFC Fighter Paige VanZant For SummerSlam

Multiple sources are reporting that WWE is apparently interested in bringing in UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant for some kind of role for August's SummerSlam event in Brooklyn, New York. FOX Sports has reported the following:

"VanZant’s manager, Mike Roberts of MMA Inc., confirmed to FOX Sports on Monday that WWE has reached out to inquire about the 'Dancing with the Stars' runner-up appearing 'in some capacity' at the annual event.

There’s no word what kind of role VanZant might have at SummerSlam, but the WWE has spoken to her management team about her possible appearance at the event."

Ever since it was announced that Brock Lesnar would be making a one-time-only appearance at UFC 200 to face Mark Hunt, fans have been wondering what WWE may get out of the deal; however, further reports indicate that the UFC is expected to "heavily promote" SummerSlam at UFC 202, which will see the debut of former WWE Superstar CM Punk, in exchange for allowing Lesnar to compete at UFC 200. UFC 202 also takes place the night before SummerSlam.
