Video: Paige Vows to Make History on This Week’s NXT

paige retrospect promo

On this week’s episode of NXT looking back at 2013, Devin Taylor spoke with NXT Women’s Champion Paige about the historic year she has had.

Paige discussed defeating Emma to become the inaugural champion, and said that although Emma is known for her dancing outside the ring, she now respects the Australian as she proved she also knows a few moves inside the ring.

Paige then sent a message to all the Divas, including directly addressing WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee, by saying that sooner rather than later, she will make history as a wrestler.

Watch the segment below:

The NXT Redux will be back next week!

Do you think 2014 will finally be the year that Paige is called up the main roster?

    I’m still too busy laughing from watching her getting beat up by her 4 year old niece, Summer-Jade.

  • Haus0fMe

    Who will take the title from her?

    • CrazyGirlAJ (#ChickBusters)

      Sasha.

      • Haus0fMe

        YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    • BorisG

      I hope Sasha or Emma. Most likely will be Emma since she won the #1 contender’s match.

    • QueenAliciaFox

      Bayley that will be great, in that match Bayley could turn heel and the nice girl ends and a cute bitch is now free

    • RadicalRhys

      Any of the women there now are credible to do it. Emma, Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte even (but not as likely right now), heck maybe bring back Raquel and have her beat Paige since they’ve had a small history before she left the WWE.

      • Sha95

        That moment when you can look at the Division & say that ALL the Divas are credible though, please let the NXT Creative Team crossover for the Divas Division on the main roster!

  • Haus0fMe

    Paige is my Bitch <3

  • CrazyGirlAJ (#ChickBusters)

    Yes!! She called them out so she going to mainshow.

  • BorisG

    Paige is the future! Watch out AJ!

    • Sha95

      I think a fued between them is honestly inevitable, they both have a similar uprising story in their careers. How 2012 was the year of AJ & 2013 arguably was as well w/ her realizing her TRUE dream by winning the Divas Title. Paige on the other hand realized her championship dream as well this year by making history & becoming the first ever WWE NXT Women’s Champion & in 2014 Paige will debut on the main roster! The only question is, who will be face & who will be heel.

  • Haus0fMe

    I can’t wait to see her on the main roster

  • Haus0fMe

    Has Paige’s eyebrows always been that thick? LMAO

    • Benjamin D

      No, she’s paints it.

    • wwe141

      They kept taking my attention away from the video lol

    This is probably going to lead to a NXT feud, I wish it were a Raw feud but I don’t think they’d push Paige so much so soon.

    • Sha95

      I doubt that this will lead to a AJ/Paige fued on NXT, they may have a one-off match but nota full on fued. I honestly believe that a potential fued between them two would be too great to waist on NXT.

      • Mariah_Scarey

        Yea, ur probably right. But ur avi though…… Yes.

        • Sha95

          Thanks!!!!!! ;) about time I put one up lol

  • Monkey Tennis

    I’ve still got very mixed feelings about Britany being called up.

    Is she ready? Of course she is.

    Is the division ready for her? Not really, no.

    Basically, it could go one of two ways;

    a) Paige comes in and gives the division the shot in the arm it so desperately needs right now and kicks off a year of amazing matches and memorable feuds.

    or b) Paige comes in and quickly falls into the Total Divas vs whoever merry go-round and has to job to to likes of the Bellas and even Eva Marie before all but vanishing from the roster, as has been the case with Kaitlyn. Or is perhaps pushed too fast, too soon, as happened when Gail first debuted.

    And that’s the problem. Britany’s success on the main roster is only actually a small part down to what she can do. More of it is about what creative can do with her. And considering the current state of the Divas division, that just doesn’t fill me with a huge amount of confidence.

    • Mariah_Scarey

      Hopefully wwe takes the Big E, Shield, and Wyatt route and builds her up slowly

    • Brandon

      Exactly. Paige and the other nxt divas need the best push/competitors they can get to be over. Creative has failed a lot. Ryback, Los matadors, sin cara, kharma, and curis axel are just few of many examples of what paige and others could be.

      • Ryan Martinez

        Well you can’t blame creative for Kharma. That was out of everyone’s hands.

        • Brandon

          Ik I’m just saying. Also they booked her to cry etc

          • Ryan Martinez

            That was after everything was announced.

    • Ryan Martinez

      When Paige debuts I see her first going after the Total Divas, beating all of them. Then going to AJ. Then hopefully after AJ, it’s Summer.

    • nismos69

      No i don’t think they are stupid enough to let Paige fall to a Total Diva so early into her career. I think she’ll debut and feud with Aj at wrestlemania, she wins. Rematch at Extreme Rules in a stipulation match, they write Aj off television(Paige injures her). Paige goes onto as a tweener(she thinks that she is the best blah blah blah). She goes on to feud with Kaitlyn…..

  • Mariah_Scarey

    So was this weeks NXT episode just a looking back at 2013 type of thing? No story development or nothing?

    • RadicalRhys

      More or less, no real episode this week. Should be back to normal next week I believe. But I think they shown the Cesaro VS Regal match on the episode so it wasn’t a total recap, but don’t promise me on that.

    • Ryan Martinez

      Yeah. It reflected NXT’s 2013 with the only new thing being Antonio Cesaro vs William Regal.

  • JoeWWE

    I have faith!

  • Lio Castles

    I love how Paige calls herself a “wrestler” not a “Diva”, get it gurl! <3

  • Brandon

    Really besides kharma/beth and eve/aj, aj vs paige is a fued that is destined to happen. It’s the biggest fued other than nattie and aj that I’ve seen people dying for. Their gimmicks are meant to make them allies or rivals

  • OwenMcCool

    Brb I weed myself a little… ITS COMING!

  • Ryan Martinez

    I think this year Paige, Emma, and maybe Sasha or Bayley will get called up. Paige’s mic skills have a gotten a tad better, but they still aren’t great.

    With AJ doing the open challenge thing (if WWE acknowledges it) I see Paige being the one to answer it.

    Also since this is NXT, would anybody else like to see Bayley have another character that wears a mask? I mean she is Hispanic, and she had one when she first started doing house shows, I could see her being a kinda technical lucha with Rosa as her mouth piece.

    • Sass.

      I was initially very excited to see Bayley as a masked character, but now that we’ve seen her develop her character as it is today, I love it and don’t want it to change.

      • Ryan Martinez

        No that character would be the same. She would have another one with the mask and Rosa.

        • Sass.

          Ooh I see, so like Raisha Saeed and Alissa Flash a few years ago?

          • Ryan Martinez

            Yes.

          • Sha95

            Why Rosa though? I don’t see the chemistry…

          • Ryan Martinez

            Just to give her something to do. She’s a decent manager, so why not pair her with Pamela (The name Bayley had when she had the mask). People would’ve never thought of The Real Americans or LayCool being good together, but look at them.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    It’s now more than clear that not only she will turn heel and debut sooner than later.
    This promo was really good and also a great way to tease everything I have said is gonna happen. I really don’t why people say she can’t talk when she is like way better than most of the divas. This promo made me really excited for a possible Paige and Aj feud(who is dream feud for now) as the promo could be really good and the matches even better! Also, I really think that just like Aj, Paige could end up being one of the best heel of in wwe divas history!

    She is not gonna be the typical heel like Summer who is still a great heel and this is what could make her an all time great heel with that gimmick. If booked greatly, I think she could be HUGE!

    I am so excited for the futur of the division but I am still afraid that TD and the bellas kill what could be great in the divison which means, having Aj, Summer, Kaitlyn, Emma, Paige as the top divas and carry the division with great worker like Sasha, Bayley, maybe Alexa Bliss if she is THAT good, Fox, an improved Naomi, Becky lynch, some models that can wrestle and charismaric managers!

    • Sha95

      I agree, I’m excited for the future of the Divas Division but I’m not worried about TD killing the Division because they already did the “TD vs. RD” thing, they can’t keep doing it & plus The Bellas are getting better so w/ girls from NXT being called up who are already skilled will help them even more in the ring.

  • charovnica

    If nothing turns out after this promo…I’m going to fly all the way to Orlando and slap someone! :D

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Ikr! This has to lead to something big.

  • Brandon

    Paige and aj are literally the perfect tweeters. They act heel, get cheers, and they have the same goal of being an anti-diva like person. I’m glad wwe hasn’t had aj vs paige on nxt because it should be saved for a ppv

    • Looking Glass

      But a tweener shouldn’t be a face that gets booed or a heel that gets cheered. A tweener has an ambiguous agenda and more depth beyond hating or liking things for the sake or being a heel or face. A tweener, you never know who their loyalties lie with whereas we know Paige is a face (just with some rage inside her) and AJ is clearly a heel, we just so happen to agree with her rather than creative.

    • nismos69

      It should be saved for wrestlemania

  • Ryan Martinez

    I also forgot to mention I see Lana coming up this year too.

    • Sha95

      Me too but obviously only because her guy may be more than likely getting called up, does she have a wrestling background at all though or do you know if she’s being trained behind closed doors?

      • Ryan Martinez

        Well quite frankly I don’t think she will need to wrestle.

        But she does not come from a wrestling background, she was a dancer before WWE. She probably has trained with everyone else that she was signed with (Devin, Veronica,etc).

        • Sha95

          Yes, I agree every female talent doesn’t need to be a wrestler. I remember Trish saying that in an interview, every Diva just needs a character of some sort to connect w/ the crowd (like the Golden Era) & have individuality.

  • Brandon

    I guarentee aj will have at least one defense on raw before she (might) break the record. Paige is my pick to beat aj, if not, tamina

    • Sha95

      I’m also not outruling a Mickie return next week, but yeah definitely between those three & still maybe even one of The Bellas or Nattie.

  • charovnica

    The thing is…if she debuts with the obvious goal to destroy the Total Divas cast she better do it,because I can’t see another credible wrestler and character being killed off by a weak attempt to build up the TD cast. People are ready for a change.

  • wwepassion

    Paige is gonna take over the divas division in 2014…Can’t wait.

    • BorisG

      Can’t wait for her to feud with Summer again.

      • wwepassion

        Yes!

      • Sha95

        That would be great! Especially if WWE puts effort into & mentions how they have a history of not liking each other since their days in NXT.

  • Looking Glass

    I’m kinda bored of Paige and Emma’s feud, sure they’ve put on some great matches but it just seems to have dragged on without any major spotlight in comparison to the BFFs and Bayley. I think they milked it to be honest!

  • Aaron Evans

    Debut at the Royal Rumble… destroy the Total Divas one by one, followed by possibly Kaitlyn, as she seems to be the only other noteworthy Diva other than Aj. followed by Tamina… and then a championship match.
    I’m not one to plan promos, scripts, match types & stipulations but as a basic story board, it’s not too shabby.
