Paige On Wanting To Manage Rousey, Her Injuries Compared To Daniel Bryan


WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Paige recently spoke with the folks from Planeta Wrestling for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On her transition from wrestler to SmackDown Live G.M.: "I wouldn't change a thing, because even the mistakes that I've made have made me into the person I am today. So, I wouldn't change a thing. Obviously, I wish I could wrestle but it took me down a journey now, where I'm Smackdown General Manager, and it's incredible. I get to work with the girls and the guys, I'm on every pay-per-view, I'm on every TV, ya know? So, it's good. I like it."

On her injury being different from Daniel Bryan's and how she wishes she could return but knows it's unlikely: "Well, I will fight every day to get back in to the ring, but, mine and (Daniel) Bryan's injuries are a little bit different. So, his is all stuff to do with his brain… like his concussions and stuff, while mine is spinal. Like, I have a spinal stenosis just like Edge does. And it's impossible for me to get back in the ring again unless it's like, maybe, 20 years' time.

"I will do anything. Right now, I'm really happy being Smackdown General Manager. It's opened so many different doors and I get to do so many different characters just being Smackdown General Manager – I get to be a good guy, bad guy, I get to do whatever I want. I would love to be a manager – kinda like Paul Heyman, one day. I would love to do anything like that."

On who she wanted to manage if she were to become a manager: "Everybody! I wanted to manage Ronda [Rousey] at one point, but she doesn't need me!"
