|NXT Power Rankings – February 2014
||Filed in WWE NXT Power Rankings
Last Month: #3
While Emma has been all over NXT, Raw and SmackDown, Paige has been conspicuous by her absence. The NXT Women’s Champion has not been seen since the Dec. 18 edition of NXT, where she defeated Sasha Banks.
Out of action with an injury for nearly two months, Paige’s return to the ring may be her toughest challenge yet. On NXT ArRIVAL, she’s defending her title against Emma, who’s had plenty of battles to prepare for the huge rematch.
Will the raven-haired beauty be able to pull off a repeat performance of the bout where she earned the title? Or will Paige drop further down the NXT Power Rankings as Emma dances to the top?
|Paige vs. Emma: NXT Divas take sides
||Filed in WWE.com Article
On Thursday, Feb. 27, at NXT ArRIVAL on WWE Network, Paige will defend the NXT Women’s Championship against No. 1 contender Emma. Undoubtedly two of the most popular and successful NXT Divas today, it seems only fitting that this highly-anticipated contest will take place live on the largest stage of NXT’s four-year history. While the NXT Universe is abuzz over the matchup, there’s another interested panel of observers – the NXT Divas. This week, WWE.com gets the NXT Divas’ predictions on Paige vs. Emma.
As the inquiring journalistic mind behind the innermost thoughts of NXT’s Superstars and Divas, Devin Taylor wasn’t shy with her prediction.
TAYLOR: I think Paige will remain the NXT Women’s Champion. Although she has been out for a while with an injury, I don’t think this will be a disadvantage to her. Sometimes when you’re on the sidelines, it makes you hungrier, and you come back stronger physically and mentally. Paige has had the opportunity to see Emma’s success on Raw and SmackDown, and the last thing she would want is for Emma to continue that success on NXT.
Having been in the ring with both combatants, NXT Diva Bayley believes the ArRIVAL match will more than exceed expectations.
BAYLEY: I can’t wait to see part two of this match. Paige beat Emma to become the first NXT Women’s Champion, and now we get to see if Paige can do it again. The first match was great and historic, but at NXT ArRRIVAL, it will mean even more. This is their time to prove to not just the NXT Universe, but to the whole world, who is the best once and for all. It’s hard to choose who I want to come out on top because I’m good friends with both. But if I have to choose, I would have to go with Emma. The #EMMAlution has been running strong as of late, and I’m not sure that Paige can stop it.
Not surprisingly, Beautiful Fierce Female members Sasha Banks and Charlotte had similar views … kind of.
CHARLOTTE: I want Paige to hold onto the Women’s NXT Championship so the BFFs can be the ones to end her winning streak!
BANKS: As far as we are concerned, Emma is a joke and a comedy act. If by some miracle she’s able to win, we are going to slap that smirk right off her face and take the NXT Women’s Championship.
Though JoJo has yet to compete on NXT, she has been particularly interested in the matchup, and its impact on the entire NXT women’s division.
JOJO: I think the match between Emma and Paige is going to be very close. Both Divas are tough competitors, and both bring something different to the table that we really haven’t seen in a long time. I know Paige won’t give up her title up, but I also think Emma is going to surprise a lot of people with how well prepared she is for this match. It’s a win-win situation for all of the NXT Divas.
Will the fiery, raven-haired Paige continue her historical reign as NXT Women’s Champion, or will Emma’s era of awkwardness assume its bubble-filled throne atop the NXT women’s division? The speculation will conclude on Feb. 27 at NXT ArRIVAL, live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on WWE Network!

|Mickie James mentions Paige

Former WWE Diva Mickie James recently spoke with Aaron Oster of The Baltimore Sun, and once again had some nice things to say about our current NXT Women’s Champion Paige.
Aaron: You were down at the Performance Center, which means you got to see a lot of the WWE NXT wrestlers. I know a lot of fans of women’s wrestling are raving about some of the divas down there, what did you see from them?
Mickie: I thought there were a handful of them with legit, real potential. Obviously, I thought Paige was amazing. I had met Paige before, back in England actually. I really like her. That was the first time I had worked with Emma, and I thought she was really good. Sasha Banks, I really like her a lot. She had a good personality and was really sharp, and had a great look and a great character. Yeah, there are definitely girls with potential there. You never know who’s going to be the next superstar. Some of them are just kind of getting their feet wet, and have a ways to go, but they could be the next superstars.
|The Layfield Report – Interview with The Knights
||Filed in Article
There have been many great wrestling families over the years from the Von Erich’s to the Hart’s, and the Knight’s a British family from Norwich are among them. The Knights consist of dad Ricky, mum Julia Hamer-Bevis (Sweet Saraya), son’s Zak and Roy, and daughter Britani.
The family starred in Channel 4 documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family, which followed the Knight children as they had tryouts with the WWE, and Britani ended up getting a contract and has since been a huge success in the WWE’s developmental territory NXT as Anti-Diva Paige.
After the success of the documentary there have been talks of a series and this is something the family would welcome, Ricky revealed.
“It was a really good experience making the documentary, we’ve done a lot of TV over the years like chat shows and other documentaries, but this one the whole family was involved.
“It was only on for an hour but they followed us about for 14 months, some days it could get frustrating because they are in your face on a bad day or if things aren’t going well in the office or your running late for a show they want to get another shot in.
“To be honest we were very lucky because Max (Fisher) the director was really good, and I was pleased with the end product and we got a very positive response and their is talk in the pipeline about doing a series.
“Britani getting the WWE contract whilst filming the documentary actually happened by accident, it was originally going to be about the whole family and WAW but as soon as she got the contract the whole angle of the show changed. That is why they can get a series out of it, because there is so much more in the can.” Continue reading »
|Diva of Tomorrow|
August 17, 1992 (21)
Don’t dare call Paige a Diva. This raven-haired lady preaches a simple message. She wants to fight. Despite being the youngest female competitor in the NXT locker room, Paige started wrestling when she turned 13, following her family of English wrestlers.
Proud of her Anti-Diva ways, Paige carries a mean streak that only a villain like NXT commentator William Regal could appreciate, saying, “She will quite happily kick your head in, so why antagonize her?” Paige wants to be a champion and she plans to prove that point to anyone who stands in her path of rage.
