WWE Diva Paige recently spoke with Scott Fishman on the Miami Herald, and talked about a number of topics, including joining the Total Divas cast, the appeal of the show, what to expect from her on the show, and more. You can read a few excerpts below:
Paige on Total Divas and its appeal:
“That’s the thing about ‘Total Divas’ because you don’t expect me on it; so it brings something new to the table,” she said. “That’s pretty much why they wanted me on it in the first place. They wanted me a while back. At first, I was like, ‘No.’ It was wrestling, wrestling, wrestling. After a while, I spoke to my family about it. Then when the opportunity came again, it was like, ‘You know what. Yes. I’m going to do it.’”
Paige on why she joined the E! show cast:
“It was an opportunity I didn’t want to regret later on. These are girls I work with all the time, and they are great people. So I thought, ‘Why wouldn’t I want to work with them on a reality show, too?’ The only thing I was worried about is that I shut off from my personal life. I’m not good at opening up with people. It took me a while on the show to do it, but when you see it you will say, ‘Okay. That’s the reason why.’”
What to expect from Paige on Total Divas:
“You’re going to see me be very blunt with people. You’ll see me have some kind of confrontation, whether it be physical or verbally. You’ll see me make terrible decisions. You know what though; that’s me. I just like people can see it. They can see I am completely different than the rest of the girls. I change the whole dynamic.”
