Paige says Paul Heyman told her that she'll be the female Paul Heyman

Since her retirement, Paige has undertaken a number of roles in WWE, but it seems now she’s going to be booked as a manager for the foreseeable future.

The former Divas Champion is currently managed the women’s tag team of Asuka and Kairi Sane, and their current push could see them receive a Women’s Tag Team title shot at Money in the Bank.

During a recent interview with Uproxx, Paige revealed that she had been pitching to the WWE to become a manager for a while.

At one point, the former SmackDown Live general manager wanted to be the manager for Ronda Rousey or Asuka by herself.

She said: “It wasn’t going to be that specific tag team, but I was always pitching the idea of managing someone, even if it was Ronda Rousey, or Asuka by herself. You know, because the thing is with Asuka and Kairi, it’s just that their English isn’t too great right now.

“They’re incredible wrestlers, like the best wrestlers that I feel like we have, but sometimes you need to have the talking on the microphone, as much as people think we don’t need it, we do.”

Paige revealed as well that it was Paul Heyman that told her she would be managing both The Empress of Tomorrow and The Pirate Princess.

Heyman also told her that she was going to pretty much be the female version of him as a manager.

She said: “So I pitched the idea to Asuka, but then Paul Heyman called me and said that pretty much I was going to be the female version of him, but with these two instead, and I was super-excited about it.

“Slowly but surely we’re creating a really cool bond between the three of us. I know it looks kind of weird at first, you know, the dynamic of having this pale goth chick and then these beautiful Japanese wrestlers who are very colorful and vibrant like unicorns.

“So the dynamic is very strange, but I think as the weeks go on people are really going to fall in love with it.”

Paige is definitely one of the better talkers on the mic in the WWE, and the pairing with Asuka and Sane looks like it’s the perfect pairing already. She’s well on her way to becoming the female version of Paul Heyman.
