      TNA Reportedly Interested in Signing Paige


      Recommended Posts

      While it now appears Paige will return to WWE as an active performer, TNA is interested in signing her should she become a free agent and they are legally able to do so. 

      Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that she tried to quit WWE two weeks ago, which led to organization officials trying to mend fences with her by talking things over. It appears now that things have been settled between both sides. 

      According to Meltzer, Paige is under contract to WWE through April 2019.

      I'm sure the thinking is that by getting someone with TV time and an established fan base, it eliminates them having to build someone up.

      The problem with that is, if for example she was to go to TNA and say win the Knockouts Championship a few months (or even weeks since we know what TNA's like) after her debut, she's going to start going stale and people would start to find her boring (Sienna & Jade are two examples). It seems like former WWE associates (Gail, Tara, Angelina, Brooke, ODB, Taryn...) are likely to have more success over their homegrown talents if they sign with TNA.

      Considering reports are going around that WWE are now legit and serious on purchasing TNA, I wouldn't be too worried or bothered. :newspaper:

      WWE are doing the same tho! :newspaper: 

      WWE's a big time wrestling business and they can basically do whatever they want and get away with it, as we see week in and week out with their same shitty ass booking. lol

      Why are they so up WWE's sloppy seconds? How about make your own stars.

      Is this even news worthy? They'll hire anyone who has even the slightest WWE affiliation because they think it automatically will get them more viewers and they don't have to invest any time in developing them.

      But the WWE has been doing the EXACT same thing? this double standard is fucking disgusting and shows your bias WWE Fan boy card.

      OK and? TNA is also a big time wrestling company; TNA is serving diversity in it's storyline and matches and the only thing you and other flops cant get pass is the fact that it's TNA. Also because it's cool and popular to shit on it, you cant just read spoilers and pass judgement.

      I have watched the last few weeks of TNA when it's been posted and I haven't been impressed. They're trying, but when you half-ass what could be an interesting storyline by dragging it out for months on end and relying on people who are not the best talkers and workers to get the job done your product is going to suffer. Just because they have Maria and Gail Kim and they're trying to have a different and developed storyline doesn't mean it's good or that everyone will appreciate it. 

      Also, I don't check for any of the NXT indy-darlings (aside from Athena who's had maybe three matches), but it for sure is lazy of WWE to try to use Indy talent to prevent them having to build up legitimate stars -- no one is questioning that. It is suspect though that Charlotte is the top woman right now without being brought in with automatic wrestling credibility from the indies. Maria's status as a top heel in TNA was undisputed as soon as she debuted because TNA assumed viewers would know her and connect with her because of her past. It's hard to compare the sides when WWE's top women are mostly homegrown or have developed into stars in the company (Nikki, Charlotte) when TNA's only remaining original talents are Gail and Madison Rayne, who's faded way into the background.

      Um TNA is not a big time wrestling company. At one point they were working their way up to that by using their own stars (Styles, Shelley, Sabin, Kong, Joe, Beautiful People, etc) but they've fallen so far down I've seen local Indy shows put on a better quality product. Myself and the "other flops" are allowed to have our own opinions. You can calm your tits and take several seats if they don't agree with your own. I've been to several TNA shows, I follow the product, I'm quite capable of forming my own thoughts without being told by others how to think or feel. 

      Oh and WWE may be using former TNA people, but aside from AJ, none of them are debuting on the main roster with instant title shots so....

          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.
