90 Day Fiancé star Paola Mayfield has announced her professional wrestling debut!
Going under the moniker “Paola Blaze” the 33-year-old reality star looks set to follow in the footsteps of the likes of two-time WWE Champion The Miz and former Love Island star Adam Maxted in crossing the bridge between reality television and professional wrestling – with the likes of the Bella Twins going in the opposite direction in recent years via WWE’s own Total Divas and Total Bellas shows.
Mayfield – who boasts over one million followers on Instagram – will wrestle at Magic City Wrestling Federation’s “New Beginings” alongside the likes of former WWE stars Carlito, Primo and Epico Colon, and NWA’s Chris Masters.

Mayfield’s transition may come as a surprise for many, but the Colombian has a vast fitness background – having worked as a fitness instructor, nutrition coach and even a Zumba instructor following her stint on television.
Ahead of her debut, Paola Mayfield introduced the world to her new character “Paola Blaze” – saying she’s been waiting for this moment for “so long” and detailing her journey from a shoe designer.
“The Moment is here
“Meet Paola Blaze , your new favorite wrestler.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long! I can’t believe in a couple of days, on May 1st, I will be making my debut as a wrestler. I can finally show all my hard work and dedication! You never know what you want in life until you try many things, and I’m glad I did! I have fun, I make money, and I make people angry I’ve done so many things in my life that I’m very proud of and others not so much, but here I am from being a shoe designer in Colombia to modeling and acting to a very controversial TV personality, a personal trainer, nutrition coach, Zumba instructor and now a wrestler 🤼.
I’ve been training since last year, very hard and quietly. Wrestling requires so many skills that I didn’t know I have but damn I’m very good at them! I love it, it makes me feel alive and powerful! I wish I new wrestling before but now it is my time to show you what this Latina is made of! I’m bringing the fire! “
