Lillian Garcia welcomes Paige to the show.
Paige informs that growing up in a wrestling family wasn’t a lot of fun for her. Wrestling wasn’t really cool back then and she was picked on quite frequently in high school. She didn’t have a lot of friends back then and she struggled in school because of this. She began travelling as a working wrestler at 14-years old and she felt like she was already grown up at that very young age.
Around this same time her mother disappeared for a period of time. Her mother works very hard and struggled with several issues, and one day it all just became too much for her. They eventually found her staying alone with their dog, and she was a completely different person from that day on. Paige admits that it took her a while to forgive her mom, but after finding herself in some sticky situations lately she began to understand how a person can just ‘shut off’ and run away.
Paige admits that she has a lot of trust issues, especially with men, and she hadn’t ever really fully committed to a relationship except for her last relationship with Alberto Del Rio. For this reason, the last few months after their separation have been very tough for her and she’s not quite ready to dive into another relationship at this point.
