Paige was recently interviewed by Jozef Raczka of Vulture Hound to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
Having women’s tag team titles in WWE:
“First off, I absolutely feel there should be Women’s Tag Team Championships, I really want that to happen. Sonya & Mandy are doing so well together and separate but, it’s just hard, they hadn’t been in NXT that long then they’re brought up and after I had to bow out with my injuries, I don’t think I’d had a chance to help them get established enough before they were sent out on their own. But Mandy’s great, she’s kind of an old-school diva and Sonia, she was killing it in NXT, working with Asuka and Ruby Riott on non-televised shows and she had that great match with Charlotte the other week, I just think they both have so much potential and when the time is right, with so many storylines going on, sometimes people have to wait for their turn but when they get their shot, it’ll be amazing. I can’t think of any teams that aren’t already together, there’s Absolution, well, there was Charlotte and Becky not really anymore though, there are Asuka and Naomi, The IIconics, beyond Carmella, there isn’t really anyone else left to put in a team.”
Being SmackDown General Manager helping her to fill the void of not wrestling:
“I’m so proud of all the work I do and looking forward to everyone seeing the film but right now, I am committed to being the best GM I can and it’s different because I’m not getting in the ring but I’m doing 4 or 5 promos a night sometimes and I’m mixing it up with the men and the women and I love getting to work with Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan, R-Truth, Miz. It’s different because I’m not having to think about matches in the same way but I’m still there all the time which I love and it’s fun, it’s pushing me massively outside my comfort zone but I’m loving every single minute of it. I have all this but also I’m back for this season of Total Divas which after missing last season I’m so excited to be back on it and I think people are going to see a different side of me this season. I do a lot more adulting than people are possibly used to (laughs).”
