Paige Says Fans Didn’t Take Women’s Wrestling Seriously

Leave a comment

Fighting With My Family has received great reviews so far. The movie is projected to make a very substantial profit as well. This story couldn’t be possible without Paige and her journey to WWE.

While promoting Fighting With My Family, Paige spoke to Gulf News. She defended WWE for not promoting women’s wrestling. She also explained how it was more about the fans than anything else.

“It was never WWE holding the women back. It was the fans not taking them seriously. They wanted to see more of the male characters many years ago. It was a male-dominated sport.”

“When I first started, there were only five women there. It was a struggle but WWE just believed in us. When I got into the ring, I wanted to prove to the fans that girls were capable of having good matches and sometimes, even better. That was kind of my mission from the get go. Now there’s obviously a revolution.”

Paige also discussed her battle with depression in the wake of some extremely unfortunate circumstances after her private videos were leaked online. Paige brought up the story about how a small child walked up to her in a grocery store and changed her life by acting like Paige was the most beautiful woman in the world.

“It just changed me because it made me stronger. It made me take out the toxic people and things out of my life and now I just look at it way more positively,” admits Paige. “I am very open about it now. I made a mistake and I can share it with people now… so I can help other people with my mistakes.”

Paige’s next steps in her WWE journey might be a bit unclear. After being removed as SmackDown General Manager, you never know where Paige will pop up next. She is building a brand away from pro wrestling and doing well in that area as well.
