During the second night of NXT Halloween Havoc on October 31, Kelani Jordan and Lola Vice squared off in the finals of the NXT Women's Breakout Tournament. Vice scored the pinfall victory, securing a future shot at the NXT Women's Championship in the process.
Hailing from Miami, Florida, Vice is a decorated combat athlete having trained with American Top Team and competing around the world as a flyweight in mixed martial arts, highlighted by two KO/TKOs in Bellator.
She chose to sign with WWE despite being offered several lucrative offers from elsewhere and has already brought her MMA skills to the squared circle, showing the NXT Universe why she's not to be trifled with.
Playing into her larger-than-life pro wrestling persona, Vice recently took a ride on a jet ski...with her contract in hand. "I do whatever I want, I get whatever I want" she captioned the photo, adding "#ViceCity" as a hashtag.
Vice is an absolute knockout in more ways than one and a star on the rise who has all the makings of a top name in WWE once she hits the main roster.
Talking earlier this year, she revealed the challenges which came with making the leap from MMA to WWE. "People think because I come from a fighting background it’s easier to transition to pro wrestling. That’s false," she explained. "It’s way harder to have to pull than to learn how to give."
"That’s why they’re hiring so many young talented athletes because they can teach them the ways. With me, I’ve had to kind of erase the psychology and learn a new one. The first time I ever took a bump, I knew this career was for me. It’s natural to me, I’m good at it, I love the performance."
"WWE did a great job with me last year. They gave me a lot of repetition, a lot of matches, teaching me with the best coaches in the world," Vice continued. "I know I haven’t posted a lot, or I’ve been low-key, it’s because I’ve been really indulging myself in this experience because I want to be the best superstar ever in the history of this company."
