Feb 17, 2019 - by James Walsh

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Paige spoke about how she had to calm down Nia Jax following Jax accidentally injuring Becky Lynch during a brawl back in November of last year. Here are highlights:

On Jax accidentally injuring Lynch: “I had to calm Nia down from that because she was like, ‘I feel like everyone is mad!’ And I said, ‘You know what? This elevated Becky so much too. And you’re about to turn heel anyways — so who cares?’”

On winning over the fans with women’s wrestling: “When I first came there, WWE really did love the women wrestlers. They really did support them. It’s just that a lot of the time the fans didn’t. They looked at them like ‘T&A.’ They’d go use the restroom during our matches and didn’t take us very seriously.”
