AEW founder and president Tony Khan is interested in having American Top Team's Paige VanZant do more work for the promotion going forward.

Khan said as much during yesterday's pre-Full Gear 2021 media call. Speaking on the ongoing ATT vs. Inner Circle feud, which he said came about through his friendship with Dan Lambert, Khan praised the storyline for the heat it has drawn in big buildings (like Arthur Ashe Stadium) and the mainstream coverage it has brought, adding that he is a big fan of VanZant, whom he'd love to welcome back.

VanZant has made several onscreen appearances as part of Lambert's ATT crew over the past few weeks. Dynamite's 3 November episode saw her cut a brief promo on Chris Jericho and the rest of his stable, though she was absent from the 10 November Full Gear go-home show.

VanZant, a former UFC fighter and Dancing with the Stars contestant, currently fights for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Her MMA record sits at 8-5.
