Paige faces Nikki Bella this Sunday for the Divas Championship at WWE's inaugural Fastlane event.

Ahead of her match Paige spoke to Crave Online about the upcoming title decider, who she would love to fight and how she ended up with the name "Paige."

The former Divas Champion talked about Nikki Bella and what it was like knowing she was facing her this Sunday.

She said: "She is an awesome competitor. I'm very excited to face up against her. I know, hopefully, we're going to get to tear the house down. It is going to be a good competitive match. You're going to see some surprises and crazy stuff. I can't really tell you much about it but tune in and watch cause its going to be great, I promise."

There is some speculation regarding Paige and Nikki's match this weekend and whether or not AJ Lee will make her return to save Paige from the sister duo. 

Ronda Rousey

Paige also talked about who she would like to face if she could face any celebrity. She said, according to NoDQ, "Oh my gosh! I'd probably end up getting my butt kicked but probably Ronda Rousey because she's cool...and Kim Kardashian." 

This is interesting because Ronda was linked with WWE and said that she would happily play a part in a storyline for the WWE, but given the latest links between UFC and WWE, it seems highly unlikely. 

Paige was also asked about how she gained the name "Paige." Her real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis, which leads many people to question how the name Paige came about. 

"So when you first get to, it was FCW back then, you give them a list of names of what you want and they bring it down to maybe they will choose it or they will give you like three. They only choose one of my names and that was Paige and they gave me two others. It was Echo and [laughing] I said "No". Then there was Mara, from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [Rooney Mara]. So that was the one that stood out to me."

Paige could become a three-time divas champion tonight, equaling AJ Lee and Eve's record for the championship.
