Lola Vice is poised to make her singles debut in NXT, signaling the commencement of a promising wrestling career. The former MMA fighter turned professional wrestler has set her sights on an audacious goal: to become the greatest WWE Superstar in history.
In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Lola Vice left no room for ambiguity when she declared, “I am going to be the best Superstar in the history of the WWE.” While such a proclamation is undeniably subjective, the world of professional wrestling has seen legendary figures like Hulk Hogan, The Rock, The Undertaker, and Ric Flair grace its annals of greatness.
Valerie Loureda, known in the MMA world for her stint with Bellator and an impressive 4-1 pro record, made a life-altering decision last year. Despite her promising career in mixed martial arts, Valerie chose to follow a different path—one that led her to WWE. The transformation was not merely a career shift; it marked the birth of Lola Vice, her wrestling persona.
The turning point in Lola’s journey occurred when she attended WrestleMania as a fan and subsequently tried out for WWE executives. It was a pivotal weekend that redefined her trajectory, and she hasn’t looked back since. Lola Vice shared her profound connection with the world of wrestling and expressed heartfelt gratitude for the opportunities that have come her way.
“In that moment I got goosebumps when I went to that WrestleMania, and I saw this for the first time, and I spoke to Triple H and everyone, and I just knew it was for me. And, I’m just so grateful for this opportunity. A lot of people would kill to be in the position I am right now, and I will never take that for granted.”
Fast forward to September 19, 2023, and Lola Vice is poised to make her NXT singles debut against Roxanne Perez on the USA Network.
In light of the recent merger between UFC and WWE, we asked Lola Vice if she had any advice for MMA fighters considering a similar transition. Her response was a word of caution, emphasizing the unique challenges posed by professional wrestling. She believes that wrestling is, in her own words, “way harder than MMA.”
As Lola takes her first steps in NXT, the wrestling world will be watching with anticipation, eager to witness the unfolding chapters of what promises to be an epic career.
