PAIGE VANZANT has been compared to Ronda Rousey by fellow AEW star Scorpio Sky.
Former UFC fighter Paige, 28, made her wrestling debut alongside Scorpio at Double or Nothing in Vegas last month.
Fans were impressed with the bare-knuckle fighter's performance as she helped beat ex-MMA rival Tay Conti.
Scorpio had already tipped 'Badass' VanZant to be a hit in the wrestling world after seeing her train with WWE legend Gangrel.
He teamed up with VanZant and Ethan Page to defeat Frankie Kazarian, Sammy Guevara and Conti in a hard-fought contest.
And he was full of praise for crossover star VanZant, who is due for a return to bare-knuckle fighting in July.

Scorpio Sky told Busted Open Radio: “She was just herself out there, which was awesome.
"She has a big fan base and a lot of people like her."
He also touched on comparisons with Rousey, who made a similar switch from MMA to wrestling.
Sky continued: "I knew there was going to be comparisons to Ronda and that sort of thing, and so it was important to me [we shifted away from that]."
Paige has an avid social media following and was back teasing her fans with sultry snaps after her Vegas antics.
She gave supporters an inside glimpse into her Sin City trip alongside fighter husband Austin Vanderford.
And this week she wowed loyal followers with two stunning belfie snaps.
The ex-UFC star is seen posing in a cowboy hat and tiny bikini, as well as snaps of her relaxing by the pool.
