Having kicked off in Glasgow last night, WWE is touring the UK RIGHT FLIPPING NOW – and one of the stars fans are most excited about seeing live is undoubtedly Norwich’s very own Paige.
As if it was in doubt, MTV has learned – because whenever we write about her, punters go gaga for articles her – she is one of WWE’s most popular performers.
MTV got the chance to chat to her the other week while we were in Wrestlemania and the modest 22-year-old said she wasn’t sure why she is so very, very over with WWE’s legions of fans.
“I have no idea where that came from,” she told us.
“I’m like the girl next door that doesn’t brush her hair, I’m relatable.
“When they see Eva Marie, they’re like: ‘We can’t speak to her, she’s way too pretty.’
“And they’re also like: ‘Hey Paige, scruffy mess, how you doing? We can be friends!’
“I like being like that.”
As if she could ever be described as a ‘scruffy mess’!
As a fixture on WWE’s programming, there’s also a valid argument to suggest Paige is currently one of TV’s biggest global stars to hail from the UK and consequently – to many international fans – a quintessential representation of what it means to be British.
But what kind of reaction does she get about being a famous Brit because of that?
“Everyone one thinks we’re all related to everyone else [that is British and in the public eye] or we talk to everyone else. I hear ‘How is Ozzy Osbourne?’ a lot and I’m like: ‘I don’t know, because he’s not my friend!’
“Or I hear: ‘How are the Beatles?’ ’I don’t know – and also, half of them, very sadly, aren’t with us any more.’
“I may look like I can channel spirits, but I can’! People also assume I must be a fan of Doctor Who…”
