Paola and Russ Mayfield from the ’90 Day Fiancé’ franchise

How did Paola and Russ Mayfield meet? It happened in Colombia, where Paola is from, when Russ was there working as an engineer in the oil industry. The two actually met at a party, and they settled in Oklahoma together, where Russ is originally from. The couple was married in 2013, and they have a son together named Axel, who was born in 2019. The little family of three lives in Miami, Florida.

They’ve been in a variety of different spinoffs in the franchise, including season 1 of the original 90 Day Fiancé. They’ve also been in seasons 1 through 4 of Happily Ever After, as well as episodes of Pillow Talk, Self-Quarantined, and a discovery+ exclusive series called Love Games. They’ll also be in a new discovery+ series called 90 Day: Foody Call, premiering on Saturday, May 29, 2021.

Paola Mayfield, the professional wrestler

Many of Paola’s fans have probably heard, but she’s taken on a new venture as a professional wrestler. On March 25, 2021, she announced on social media about it. In a post on Instagram, she shared video clips of herself in the ring training with other people. “Meet your new wrestler 🤼‍♀️ bringing all the Colombian fire 🔥,” she wrote in the post.

Then on April 9, 2021, Paola shared a wrestling look on Instagram, featuring small shorts in black, pink, silver, and beige. She had on black and pink boots with a top that matches her shorts that looks like a bra with long pink hair as well. She also revealed her wrestling name, which is “Paola Blaze,” while inviting fans to her “first live match,” which took place on May 1st in Hialeah Gardens, Florida.

Paola did, in fact, go into the ring for her first performance as a professional wrestler. She shared a number of photos after the match on Instagram, including a similar image to the one Russ shared of the pair.

Paola had a completely different look for her debut in the ring. She wears black shorts with a bra top in the colors shimmery white, orange, and black. There’s a strap in the middle that goes across her chest with rhinestones. The looks also featured a strap on her arm with more rhinestones, along with a matching sleeve. But that’s not all. Paola wore high boots with the colors white, orange, and black above them. Her long hair matches the outfit as it’s orange with black highlights.

Paola’s look is on full display in Russ’ latest photo that he shared on May 4, 2021, days after the match. He wears an orange shirt and light-colored jeans as he has an arm around his wife, and she holds his side as well. They both smile, and it’s a sweet and frame-worthy moment. It’s unclear if the photo was taken before or after Paola’s first match.

Russ goes on to reveal in the comments that he’s “extremely proud” of her. He wrote: “I am extremely proud of you @paola_mayfield I am looking forward to watching you light it up again 🔥 #paolablaze.”

It’s nice to see these sweet moments between our favorite 90 Day Fiancé cast members. We’ll have to see how far Paola takes her new professional wrestling career.
