Paige Reveals Her Original Idea For Her Ring Name & More


In an interview with Crave Online, Paige revealed that “Paige” wasn’t her first choice for a ring name back when she selected one in FCW. She previously competed as Britani Knight. Here are highlights:

On facing Nikki Bella this Sunday: “She is an awesome competitor. I’m very excited to face up against her. I know, hopefully, we’re going to get to tear the house down. It is going to be a good competitive match. You’re going to see some surprises and crazy stuff. I can’t really tell you much about it but tune in and watch cause its going to be great, I promise.”

On if there were other names before she picked Paige: “Yeah, there actually was. So when you first get to, it was FCW back then, you give them a list of names of what you want and they bring it down to maybe they will choose it or they will give you like three. They only choose one of my names and that was Paige and they gave me two others. It was Echo and [laughing] I said “No”. Then there was Mara, from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [Rooney Mara]. So that was the one that stood out to me.”

On which celebrity she wanted to fight: “Oh my gosh! I’d probably end up getting my butt kicked but probably Ronda Rousey because she’s cool…and Kim Kardashian [laughs].”
