Paige On Possibly Wrestling Madusa, Getting More Mic Time, Team PCB
December 12, 2020
WWE Diva Paige recently spoke with The Mirror to promote the ongoing WWE U.K. tour. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On what it means for the Divas to get more TV time and attention on big WWE shows:
“We absolutely love it because it all came after the whole #GiveDivasAChance thing trended, that’s really where it started. It was incredible because we don’t tend to think fans like us that much! [Laughs] But for them to really back us, that trended like three days straight, and for them to sign a petition for WWE to give us more time, that was the main thing. You know we have an amazing bunch of girls, full of talent and all hard working, but we need the opportunities because we’re really here to prove we can do stuff as good as the guys, or even better.”
On feuding with her former Team P.C.B. members Charlotte and Becky Lynch:
“It’s cool because I’ve known Becky since I was about 13, she was on the independent circuit too and stayed with my family a lot back in the day. That was crazy because we went from being on the indies together to being on the grandest stage of them all together. And then you’ve got Charlotte, who started in developmental six months after I did, so we’ve really been through it together, which is really nice. We grew up in the WWE together. We are a family, we’re literally like sisters, so it feels great to be working with them.”
On getting more microphone time lately:
“I love being on the microphone and that just makes you better as well, because after you haven’t been on the microphone for a little bit, you get extremely rusty and it gets very hard. They are giving me more time, literally every week they are giving me a promo, and I’m doing it live, which is tough, but I love doing them because it just makes me better.”
On her recent back-and-forth with WWE Hall Of Famer Madusa (Alundra Blayze) and if she’d be willing to work with her:
“Oh absolutely, I mean it’s not something that’s going to happen, but hopefully someday it could, and if it did, I would definitely do it. If she wants a match I will 100% give her a match. I don’t know if she can still go though! She’s probably not been in the ring for about 15 or 20 years… but if she wants to go, let’s go. She’s definitely someone, Alundra Blayze and Bull Nakano were like my heroes, but I don’t know about that now.”
