- Paige defeated Emma in the finals of the NXT Women’s Title tournament on NXT TV this week to become the first-ever NXT Women’s Champion. The match was taped several weeks back. Paige spoke with WWE.com about the big win:
“To be the first NXT Women’s Champion is such an honor. It’s so overwhelming that it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. Emma gave me a heck of a match and I have so much respect for her. We made history. I still can’t believe I can say that I’ve made history in WWE. I cried and cried when I won it and the support from everyone has been crazy. I’m getting goose bumps and teary-eyed just talking about it.”
“I want everyone to know that they can accomplish anything they want at any age if they just be themselves. I want to encourage millions to chase their dreams and to never change. Everyone should also know how to throw a good right hook!”
