      When it actually happened and the accident happened in the ring, I lost all feeling in my legs and my arms. It was literally the most terrifying experience in my life and I would never wish that upon anyone. It was so scary. I literally was like "Oh my gosh, I'm done, I'm going to be in a wheelchair now, this is it, I've pushed myself too much." Because I really did, because every time I was in the match I was like "its okay, I'll do the comeback, I'll take the bump, I'll do this, I'll do that" because I was just so eager to get back in the ring you know. I feel like I pushed myself too hard to the point of where my body was like "stop." You know I've been doing this since I was thirteen as well and my body was like "you need time to grow woman."

      I refused to believe I was hurt, I remember doing this. Coming back to Orlando to go get my MRIs and stuff and I felt good, I could get back in the ring again even though I just experienced temporary paralysis. I was like "No I'm good, I can do this, please don't make me be out." And I was like begging them, "Please I don't want to be out anymore, please don't let me be out." I was just crying to the doctors and stuff. So then Dr. Maroon was like "I'm sorry you cannot get back in the ring again." It was horrible, it really breaks your heart....it really does.

      I remember being in the match too and experiencing that and like "maybe it's just my arms right?" So I'm like "no I'm going to keep going." And I remember trying to grab Sasha's legs and my arms felt like there was just no bones in them you know. So I'm trying to grab her legs and then like "wait let me try to stand up and then I'll be good to do the comeback" and Sasha is like "noooo, absolutely not." Then I tried to stand up and I just look drunk. Like I just start stumbling and falling back. But actually I feel like the girls were more terrified than what I was at the time. Like I was petrified, but the girls were crying at ringside and stuff and then they see the stretcher coming out and I was like "please, please," and it's just like horrible. I don't know how you did it for so many years beforehand because it's terrifying.

       

       

      Some other key notes are: She was told she'd be going to SD after her retirement speech and found out she'd be General Manager the day of the show,  says she can never wrestle again and says her injury is more similar to Edge's than Daniels and said he returned since his problems were more concussion related rather than neck/spinal, her movie comes out March 1st, 2019 and she's in talks with WWE about bringing back Talking Smack with Renee Young. This was a pretty fun interview, nothing too overly emotional like Lilian's podcast. I recommend it!

          While appearing as a guest on WWE Backstage, Charlotte Flair was asked to look back at the five year anniversary of #GiveDivasAChance, along with Paige. Most notably, Renee Young immediately credits AJ Lee and her pipebombshell, along with the Bella Twins, for getting the ball rolling for the revolution. Paige piggy backs to say AJ Lee was the first person to really make people take notice of the division, namely with her mic work (it's AJ who, in her opinion, is the best woman ever on the mic). Charlotte and Paige then both talk about how while they were in NXT, they saw the women on main roster not getting time to wrestle, so they strived to change that. Charlotte then continues off of Paige's point about AJ Lee to say that the women before AJ definitely had the talent and weren't really given the opportunity to show it, but it was AJ who started the trend of being a distinct, unique character, which snowballed into what was seen on NXT; from that point forward the women weren't just groups of women thrown together. Then from there, every opportunity the girls were given, they just continued to deliver.
          Paige then goes on to talk about the pressure to live up to the hype following #GiveDivasAChance despite remaining cynical about being given opportunities, but says the Horsewomen came up and kept stealing the show, which elevated the women around them's in ring performance, namely the Bella Twins. Charlotte agrees and says the women all made each other better.

          As noted, the latest episode of WWE’s “After The Bell” podcast features host Corey Graves talking to Paige, Charlotte Flair and The Street Profits.
          Paige talked about how much she enjoys working on WWE Backstage, and joked about how she’s always fighting for air time with WWE Hall of Famer Booker T because he talks a lot. She also mentioned how there’s a “cuss jar” that the hosts apparently have to put money into when they let expletives slip. Paige noted that the filming process is very quick and easy, taking just a few hours from the production meeting until when they wrap filming. She said she’s done in just a few hours and then she goes home, and gets to sleep in her own bed as she lives in Los Angeles where the show is filmed for FS1.
          Graves asked Paige about the freedom she has on the show and if she enjoys it.
          “Honestly I wish I could have more,” Paige said of the freedom. “Because sometimes, you know you get a little bit pulled back, but obviously with CM Punk on the show now, since he’s working under the contract with FOX and not WWE, he can voice a lot more opinion, but I would love to go in even a little bit more. I love to talk crap, honestly, and you know, what I feel like the crap that I talk is what the people are saying anyway. So, it feels good, but I wish I got to do it more.”
          Paige had nothing but praise for WWE NXT Superstar Rhea Ripley when Graves asked who she likes these days.
          “Dude, I love Rhea Ripley,” Paige said. “I think she’s great. I think she’s the full package – just everything about her. Her promo, her wrestling, even her wrestling gear. Like everything about her, I just think she’s great, I think she’s absolutely wonderful. She’s like super young, right? She’s 22 or something like that? I’m like, what the hell, you’re doing way better than I was at 22. [Ripley is 23 as of October 11]. Actually, that’s a lie, I was the Divas Champion. I’ll take that back, but I love her, I think she’s great.”
          Paige also revealed that she has a “massive project” that she is working on, but she couldn’t say more because she’s not allowed to right now. She noted that she’s “super excited” and hopes to reveal the project in the early part of 2020.
