Roman Reigns: The hilarious story of his promo class with former WWE star Paige

  • Ash Rose

Former WWE Superstar Paige has recalled an NXT promo class that pitted her and Roman Reigns as jilted lovers arguing over a toaster. 

Promo work is a vital component to training new recruits in WWE and they are required to attend regular classes while training at the Performance Center. 

Before his sad passing, WWE legend Dusty Rhodes was the man in charge of promo classes in NXT and one of his former students has told a story from one of his famous teachings. 

Speaking at her show Saraya: Turning the Paige at Starrcast V, former WWE Diva’s Champion Paige, spoke about her time working with the American Dream. 

Dusty was like ‘You be yourself baby.’ So when I first got there, he [Dusty] would do this thing where he just make people randomly go up and do promos without any plan for them whatsoever.”

The 29-year-old continued by telling a story of when she was paired with Roman Reigns and the pair were asked to portray scorned lovers who argue over a toaster. Performing their masterclass in front of future world champions such as Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt. 

“I remember there was this promo where I was sitting and he goes ‘Alright baby get up there.’ I’m like ‘And do what?’ And he looks at Roman, who was Leati back then ‘Leati baby get up there. You don’t say anything. Saraya, he broke up with you and stole your toaster. Go!’ I’m like I am so scared, did this promo and I was mortified. Not just anyone is watching me, when I got there it was Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Roman, everyone that is flourishing on the main roster is right in front of me.”

Paige spent over ten years with WWE before her contract expired with the company in early July. She was forced into an early retirement following a neck injury but has recently hinted that she’d love to get back into the ring if that’s possible in the future.
