Paige Talks Frustrations With WWE Creative And What She'd Change, "Submission Sorority" Reaction

At the San Jose, CA Wizard World Comic Con, Paige participated in a Q&A session with fans. During the event, Paige talked about picking her battles with creative, what she would do if she was in charge of the Divas Revolution, and who she would want as a tag team partner.

Paige claimed that she picks her battles with creative and said it can be frustrating. Paige gave the examples of being put in a 5-on-1 situation at Survivor Series and the Submission Sorority name as times when she spoke up against creative and they did not listen to her.

According to Paige, she told creative that the Survivor Series crowd would turn when she was working as a heel against five babyfaces.

"I knew it was going to turn out the way it did because I was on the bad guys' side, but I said to them, 'there's five girls against one girl, even if she's a bad guy, [the audience] is going to support the one by herself' and that's how it turned out." Paige continued, "the whole crowd ended up turning on the good guys and chanting for me instead, but it's just like, 'okay, so you're dumb. I told you this.'"

Paige said she also told creative that the Submission Sorority name was a bad idea.

"I said to a couple of the writers, I was like, 'dude, Submission Sorority? Don't let children Google that. So we have to, like, change it.' And they were like, 'oh, we'll speak with Vince [McMahon] at some point.' And, I'm like, 'okay'. And then I see we get called the Submission Sorority on RAW the next day, there are millions of people watching, and then suddenly people are like, 'oh great, you're in a porn group'."

Although Paige indicated that she has no say in the Divas Revolution, she stated that if she was in charge, she would want more matches with stipulations, a Divas Championship Money In The Bank briefcase, an all women's pay-per-view, and divas matches main eventing pay-per-views. On the topic of a Divas Championship Money In The Bank briefcase ladder match, Paige said WWE could paint the ladders pink to make them more girly.

When asked who she would want as a tag team partner if there was a Divas tag division, Paige named Bayley, Emma, or Sasha Banks.
