Paige reckons Ronda Rousey could dish out a hiding to every member of WWE’s locker rooms, both male and female.
But the Brit star also believes she could get the better of the UFC headliner in the squared circle by following a uniquely WWE strategy – including licking Ronda’s face.
Asked how she’d handle UFC champ and WWE superman Rousey – tipped to feature at next’s year’s Wrestlemania, possibly in a match – if she came into her house, Paige joked to talkSPORT that sports entertainment was the only environment she would ever consider being matched up against the MMA ace.
Page laughed: “Otherwise she would totally destroy every single one of us, including the men!”
She reasoned: “There’s not really a strategy you can do but if it is in the wrestling ring, there’s her inexperience that kind of goes against her that way, y’know?
“But still, I wouldn’t want to mess with her! At any point she could say: ‘Eff this, I’m just going to put you in an armbar!’ And you’d have no choice, right?”
The Norwich-born crowd darling, part of the current WWE tour of the UK and Europe, added she may have to evade submission expert Ronda’s grappling attempts by dazzling her with some of her less conventional in-ring tricks to sneak a win.
Paige said: “Maybe I can do the old lick on the face, crawl over her, hope she freaks out and pin her from there.
“But no, I wouldn’t want to be first in line to take her on – she would kick my a***!”
