In a heartwarming moment captured for the world to see, former WWE sensation, Steph De Lander, shared an intimate collection of photos with her fiancé, the acclaimed pro wrestler Mance Warner, on her Twitter account.
Previously known to wrestling fans as Persia Pirotta, De Lander embarked on her journey with the WWE in the early days of 2021, quickly establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with. However, in a turn of events spurred by budgetary constraints, she found herself parting ways with the company in April of 2022.
Undeterred by this setback, the resilient 26-year-old wrestler swiftly pivoted to the indie wrestling scene, aligning forces with none other than Matt Cardona. De Lander's versatility and prowess also shone through in her appearances for IMPACT Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling.
Halloween Romance Revealed
Recently, De Lander decided to give her fans a glimpse into her personal life, sharing candid photos with Warner as they reveled in the festivities of their first Halloween together. The post quickly garnered attention, with fans and well-wishers flooding the comments section to express their support and happiness for the couple.
Encapsulated in a tweet, De Lander expressed her joy, stating, "Our first pumpkin. Happy Halloween! @ManceWarner."
Delving into her professional journey, De Lander recounted an interesting anecdote from a few months prior, detailing how her collaboration with Matt Cardona came to fruition.
She shared that Cardona, a former WWE Intercontinental Champion, had approached her with a proposition to join him on the indie circuit—a proposal she eagerly accepted. Reflecting on the encounter, De Lander recalled, “During the tour, he came up to me & said he had a question for me.
Instantly anxiety kicked in, but then he asked how I felt about teaming with him on the indies & being his ‘heater.’ I was stunned, realizing this was a massive opportunity, and of course, I said yes”.
Given her talent and the buzz she’s created in the indie wrestling scene, many believe this might not be Steph De Lander's last time in the WWE ring. Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure—the future looks bright for this young and ambitious wrestler.
