WWE: 10 Things You Need To Know About New Divas Champion Paige

10. She Was Born Into Wrestling

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne8SWH-Mf7c Born on August 17, 1992, Paige is the daughter of two wrestlers. Her elder brothers, too, are wrestlers. Far from being pushed into inheriting a family business, she did such by choice, following in the footsteps of her family. The fact her family maintains their own independent promotion in the United Kingdom and have since 1994 probably did little to dissuade the wide-eyed youngster as she followed in the likes of the Hart Family or the Guerreros, in attempting to broaden her family's name. Known in the UK as the "Knight Dynasty", her family's promotion- the WAW (World Association of Wrestling) continues to promote events in the UK to this date, although Paige herself hasn't wrestled for them since relocating permanently to the United States in 2011. After her victory against AJ on RAW, WWE posted the above video from backstage immediately following her win. She conducts an emotional, heartfelt interview during which she makes a point to mention leaving her family behind. One can only wonder and smile at the vindication that young lady must have felt at a risky choice she made to walk away from her family and her family business and try her hand in the shark-infested waters of the United States.

Betting on being a brilliant brother to Bodhi since 2008 (-1 Asian Handicap). Find me @LiamJJohnson on Twitter where you might find some wonderful pearls of wisdom in a stout cocktail of profanity, football discussion and general musings. Or you might not. Depends how red my eyes are.
