She is locked in on her pro wrestling career. 

Lola Vice is a year into her pro wrestling career with WWE. Present day, she’s a member of the NXT roster and is currently in possession of the women’s Breakout tournament contract

Vice has a background in MMA as she was with Bellator prior to joining WWE and tallied up a 4-1-0 fight record. Jim Varsallone asked her about the idea of venturing into UFC via TKO Group Holdings now that she’s under the WWE umbrella. She has mixed feelings about it. 

She stated that she’d be open to it if that is what her bosses wanted from her, but she’s completely focused and dedicated to her in-ring career. 

Well, you know, I have mixed thoughts about that (making move to UFC via TKO) because right now, I’m very committed to being the best wrestler or superstar in the history of WWE and I’m a big believer that you have to stick to one path and commit to that and you can’t really do two, three, four and then just be okay in all of them. If I’m gonna do something, I’m gonna be the best at it. Maybe that’s in my cards in a while if Hunter wants me to do it, whoever my boss is, I will do what they want and of course I’ll be open to it. I love fighting. But right now, I’m completely dedicated to the WWE and that’s my only goal.

On-screen, Vice is paired with Elektra Lopez. She spoke about their dynamic and how it has panned out thus far. 

It’s been awesome with Elektra (Lopez) because Elektra, she’s guided me. She’s guided me into this and you know, I love Elektra. Sometimes, we’ll have a little conflict but, I believe our tag team is very different and it’s something the WWE has never seen before and with her grit and my MMA background, we’re a team that no one can mess with.

With the women’s Breakout tournament contract, Vice has the opportunity to get a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship whenever she sees fit. 

The men’s Breakout tournament is ongoing and the first round wraps up on the 12/19 NXT on USA Network
