Australian Wrestling is back in full swing with a variety of talent making waves overseas, and another stalwart of the scene is making their debut in one of the big promotions.
The individual in question is the new WSW Women’s Champion, Steph De Lander, who was featured on AEW Dark against the trainer of the AEW Women’s Division, Marina Shafir.
Aussie De Lander has kicked off 2023 with appearances for Impact Wrestling, making her debut in January against former Impact Knockouts Champion, Jordynne Grace. Not to mention her return to Australia, participating in the World Series Wrestling tour, once again against Grace as well as Aussie veteran Shazza McKenzie, dethroning Grace for her WSW Women’s Championship.
Like Shafir, De Lander featured on WWE NXT in 2022, under the name Persia Pirotta.
