Paige: WWE Superstar opens up on her frustrations with the WWE regarding her lack of TV time despite being in charge of an incredibly talented tag team.
Paige is one of the most well-known wrestlers in the world today. The English star has charmed the WWE audience since her debut in April 2014 up to her unfortunate retirement in April 2018. Naturally the WWE where unwilling to let her leave and began using her in a non-wrestling capacity.
She went from managing Absolution (Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville) to becoming the General Manager of SmackDown. Despite being brilliant at both, Paige had to vacate her position as the GM. The decision was made after WWE decided to do away with authority figures.
Paige came back to the WWE once again but this time as the manager of Asuka and Kairi Sane. The women dubbed themselves as Kabuki Warriors. Asuka and Kairi Sane looked like they were next in line to wear the WWE women’s tag team championships around their waist. However, the women have found TV time hard to come by. Made even harder now after the introduction of the WildCard rule.
This has not just been frustrating for the fans but for their manager as well. Paige had lobbied to be given a chance at managing the two Japanese ladies because she was in awe of their talent but is now frustrated at being put at the backburner by the writers.
Paige speaks up
The Mix have reported Paige saying:
“If we don’t get used, I get really frustrated because we’re a good tag team and we need to be utilised.”
“Sometimes the writers have so much on their plate with everyone else’s storylines, they put things on the backburner.”
“I have to remind them, ‘Ok, but there is a women’s tag team title…’”
“I’m like, ‘What the hell dudes? Let’s make something happen.’”
The former Diva’s champion then revealed that it was easier speaking with Triple H and Vince McMahon then the writers.
“If you go up to writers it’s like talking to a brick wall sometimes. Whereas if you go to Vince and Hunter, they’re like, ‘If you have a problem, we can change that for you.’”
