Paige Reveals Which Superstars She Wanted To Manage That She Pitched To WWE


Paige spoke with Elle Collins of Uproxx to promote "Fighting With My Family," the movie based on her life and career. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On whether or not she ever considered playing herself in the "Fighting With My Family" movie: "No. My whole family got cameos, but I didn’t necessarily think I should be a part of it. I mean, I was happy just at the fact that they made a movie about me in general. We were very passionate about this movie. So I was happy, and then, in the credits, they ended up throwing me in there anyway."

On the inspiration behind the blonde girl who befriends Paige in the film: "I mean the girls were inspired by other women, but the other women aren’t in the company anymore. They didn’t even all make it to the main roster in the end, but they were definitely all inspired by real girls. The blonde girl that I actually befriended though, who was actually nice to me from the beginning, was Summer Rae. We were always friends right from the beginning, and she was the one who I accidentally hit!"

On whether or not she enjoys her current non-wrestling role in WWE and pitching to be the manager for several WWE Superstars: "I was always pitching the idea of managing someone, even if it was Ronda Rousey, or Asuka by herself. You know, because the thing is with Asuka and Kairi, it’s just that their English isn’t too great right now. They’re incredible wrestlers, like the best wrestlers that I feel like we have, but sometimes you need to have the talking on the microphone, as much as people think we don’t need it, we do. I love my non-wrestling role that I have. I mean obviously my first passion was to be an actual wrestler, but obviously I can’t change that, and there’s no point dwelling about it. So now I do love my part, but it obviously opens up other doors to other things."
