Ahead of WWE Fastlane this Sunday, Paige spoke to Crave Online to talk about challenging Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship, how the name 'Paige' was chosen when she arrived to Florida Championship Wrestling, Total Divas, which celebrities she wants to fight, and more. Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Facing Nikki Bella at Fastlane:
"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."
How was the name 'Paige' chosen and were there any other candidates?
"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."
Which celebrities she wants 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]."
