Pro Wrestling Veteran Confirms She Is Still A Free Agent Despite TNA Appearances

As PWMania.com previously reported, Steph De Lander recently made her return to TNA Wrestling and has been appearing on television on a regular basis since, but she was still technically a free agent and she hasn’t signed an official exclusive deal with any company.

De Lander recently spoke with Fightful on a number of topics including how she is still a free agent, but she is not against signing anywhere, however the money has to be right and it has to align with what she wants to do.

De Lander said, “I am still a free agent. Yes, yeah. It definitely suits me right now to be independent. But, I guess, we’ll see how everything unfolds. I’m not against signing anywhere. It’s just, as Matt says, the money has to be right and it has to align with what I want to do. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens over the next six months or so. But for now I’m still a free agent, which is an exciting place to be.”

On which dates she will be working in for TNA and how she began her discussions with the promotion:

“I worked for them last year at the very start of last year and kind just of dipped my toes in, did one loop. So I met everyone then and created those connections. But obviously now, with Scott not being there, it’s slightly different and the people you speak to are different. But, in my case, pre-Matt’s injury, all of my stuff was including Matt. So I went through him. Matt just messaged me and was like, ‘Hey, TNA want to use us for X, Y, Z. What do you think?’ We spoke about it and he dealt with the logistics of that. Now that things have changed and Matt is hurt, and obviously since being there on the weekend for me now is more of a direct line, but at the start it was Matt coming to me with the idea. He had spoken to them and then going from there. So I will be there in Albany for Under Siege and also a TV taping. From there it’s kind of, ‘Let’s see what happens.’ The other thing too, honestly, with all this kind of stuff, it comes down to availability, and Matt and I have a very full calendar. So, yeah, it’s what works for me, what works for them and hopefully we can come up with something great.”
