Paige Enjoying Her Freedom in New Role on WWE Backstage

Dec 13, 2019 - by James Walsh

Paige appeared on WWE After the Bell and discussed her role on WWE Backstage, her future plans and what frustrates her about the women’s divisions right now. Paige teased a “massive project” that she can’t talk about quite yet and talked about how the divisions need to give some more women the spotlight. Highlights and the podcast are below:

On how much she enjoys having more freedom on WWE Backstage: “Honestly I wish I got to have more. Because sometimes, you know you get a little bit pulled back. But obviously with [CM] Punk on the show now, since he’s working under the contract with FOX and not WWE, he can voice a lot more opinion. But I would love to go in even a little bit more. Like, I love to talk crap, honestly. And you know what? I feel like the crap that I talk is what the people say anyway. So it feels good, but I wish I got to do it more.”

On what plans she has coming up outside of Backstage: “Well, I do have a project, but I have to keep it under wraps right now. But I am super excited. So in the new year, you’ll be able to see what is going on with that. But yeah, just doing a lot of the makeup and clothing line and all that kind of stuff, which is super stuff. And then obviously, I have just the most wonderful boyfriend ever. I have to namedrop him, he is so wonderful, Ronnie … Yeah, we have so much going on right now and it’s really cool, but I do have this massive project but I can’t let you guys know yet. It’s a secret.”

On the Raw and Smackdown women’s division feeling stagnant: “Oh, don’t even get me started with that, dude … I don’t understand why we don’t have another girl’s PPV. We had that one-off deal, like what the hell is that about? Give us one every year, what the f**k? That’s the whole purpose, we had a women’s evolution for a reason. And you know what, f**k it. Let’s stop talking about the women’s evolution and actually just let the women do whatever they want. And I just feel like a lot of the girls are being held back. I love the Four Horsewomen, do not get me wrong. I love Sasha, I love Charlotte, I love Bayley, I love Becky. I love them all, but there’s a lot of women that should be given an opportunity … as much as I love those four, there are other women in the company”
