Paige Reveals Advice She Gave Nia Jax Backstage After Becky Lynch Incident

Ahead of the nationwide premiere of the film of her life and career, “Fighting with my Family,” Paige spoke with the Los Angeles Times for an interview. Featured below are a couple of the highlights.

On giving Nia Jax some words of encouragement after punching Becky Lynch on accident live on RAW: “I had to calm Nia down from that because she was like, ‘I feel like everyone is mad!’ And I said, ‘You know what? This elevated Becky so much too. And you’re about to turn heel anyways — so who cares?’

On how the fans, not WWE, looked at women wrestlers differently when she first got to FCW in 2011: “When I first came there, WWE really did live the women wrestlers. They really did support them. It’s just that a lot of the time the fans didn’t. They looked at them like ‘T&A.’ They’d go use the restroom during our matches and didn’t take us very seriously.”
