The new WWE Divas champion Paige talked to the independent recently on her shocking victory over AJ Lee for the Divas championship. She talked about a lot of things including her victory, her future planning and lots other exciting stuffs. Here are some highlights;

“Oh my gosh, you have no idea. I lost my mind. Firstly just being in the ring with AJ who I’ve always looked up to, she’s an incredible talent and a woman to be around, and then being on Raw is just insane.

“I’ve been working my whole career to get to this point, it’s been nearly nine years now, and it was just incredible. I couldn’t stop crying, I haven’t stopped talking to my family about it, it’s overwhelming especially getting so much support from the fans and backstage. It’s been magical.”

“My whole family are wrestlers; I was brought up in the business. I was wrestling as a foetus believe it or not, because my mum (Sweet Saraya) was pregnant with me and didn’t realise while she was wrestling.”

“I started traveling around the world by myself by the time I got to 14, I worked really hard because I knew what my goal was, which was to be in WWE.

“I did everything I could, I made CVs and sent them to promoters all over the world, and managed to get myself out there.”

“I didn’t get signed the first time I had a try-out. I tried to be like what I thought they wanted, I wanted to be tanned, and have light hair and no piercings. I tried to be girly, but it didn’t work out too well.

“I worked really hard, and so I went to the second try-out dressed as myself: pale, black hair, piercings. They loved it, asked me to come over, and I’ve been here for two and a half years now.”

“The longer I can keep both Championships the better, I’m not just going to give up the NXT Women’s Championship, I worked my booty off to get that in the first place.

“I’m going to try and keep the WWE Divas Championship, I want to try and have a longer streak than AJ Lee’s. I’m going to be defending them both, and retain them constantly.”

“It was incredible with all the British flags in the crowd. What better way to do it than in front of people from your home country. It was fantastic and they were so supportive.

“I didn’t expect them to be as loud as they were, I didn’t know that a lot of people knew me, it was overwhelming, they were so loud and crazy.

“My heart was pounding, I got backstage and I started crying, I was like ‘what is this life!’.”

“It’s a goal to get on the tour because it’s not guaranteed, but fingers crossed that I get on there. If I do it’ll be the best experience in my life.

“I just want to say thank you for all the support, I wouldn’t be doing as well as I am without all my fans. I’m really happy so keep on supporting me I’ll try and make everyone proud.”
