Steph De Lander was known as Persia Pirotta during her time in WWE. She was among the 10 NXT Superstars who were released from the company on April 29.
De Lander is an Australian professional wrestler and was a regular feature in WWE’s development brand, NXT 2.0. She recently teased launching her OnlyFans account after her release from Vince McMahon’s company.
However, that plan might have taken a backseat as she is set to step into the ring once again. The official Twitter handle of Xtreme Pro Wrestling announced that she will be among 8 women who will compete in a tournament to determine the inaugural XPW Women’s Champion.
Here is the full tweet:
“XPW is proud to announce Steph De Lander into the 8 women tournament to crown the first XPW Women’s Champion June 25, live at the Derby Room! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW https://tix.com/ticket-sales/XPWwrestling/6899/event/1268506…@thetayavalkyrie@persiawwe“
An elated De Lander quote retweeted the above tweet and wrote that this will be her first match post her release from WWE.
“This will be my first match back post WWE”
Bayley versus Stephanie De Lander
The 32-year-old Bayley is one of the top Superstars in WWE and fans are awaiting her return after she suffered a torn ACL last year.
Bayley is a former NXT Champion, a RAW Women’s Champion, and a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion. She also won the Women’s Tag Team Championship on a couple of occasions alongside Sasha Banks.
Bayley replied to the tweet from De Lander and said that Stephanie’s first match might not be in the 8-woman tournament if she comes to get her.
“Not if I get to you first you big ol talented idiot”
Will we see Bayley and De Lander compete against each other in the future? We will have to wait to find out but it is certain that Bayley could be returning to the ring very soon.
