Aussie WWE star Steph ‘Persia Pirotta’ De Lander joins OnlyFans after being dropped by the wrestling company
Former WWE star Steph De Lander has found a new job after being released from her contract with the pro-wrestling company in April.
The Melbourne-born grappler, best known by her WWE stage name Persia Pirotta, launched her own OnlyFans account this week to great fanfare.
‘We’re doing hot girl s**t. OnlyFans is now live,’ the 25-year-old announced on Twitter.

The tweet received more than 5,000 ‘likes’ and dozens of comments from enthusiastic wrestling fans.
‘I’m all for supporting women. Count me in!’ responded one fan, while another wrote: ‘Someone go subscribe and let me know if it’s good or not lol.’
‘Damn, this gives me Chyna vibes,’ wrote another, referring to the late Joanie ‘Chyna’ Laurer who launched a porn career after leaving WWE.
Steph recently said she was ‘shocked’ to be dropped from WWE out of the blue.

‘I think in general for a talent to be let go smack bang in the middle of a story[line], when I was on TV every single week for three months, and so was Dexter [Lumis], I think in that sense it’s a surprise,’ she told NBC Sports.
Steph and Dexter were just two of 10 pro wrestlers who were released from WWE’s developmental NXT brand last month.
The Australian star debuted on the independent wrestling circuit in 2017 under the stage name FaceBrooke, before joining WWE in 2021 as Persia Pirotta.

A growing number of female professional wrestlers have turned to OnlyFans in recent years after exiting major wrestling promotions like WWE, Impact and AEW.
Former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Chelsea Green launched her account last October, while ex-WWE star and Instagram model Scarlett Bordeaux has also found success on the platform.
Last month, Kiwi-born wrestler Toni Storm revealed she had raked in more than $30,000 during her first week on OnlyFans.
