  • let the pigeons loose 12

    Gonna sound corny but Paige makes me proud to be British

    • Sarah Connor

      aaaaaaand me. :)

  • redsandman99

    Not surprised and I honestly agree with her getting the belt. She’s been built as the main star of their women’s division and while I understand the cries of it being predictable and would have been fine with Emma as champ, it just sort of feels right for me for Paige to become the first champion.

  • FameHooker18

    I really didn’t want to read the spoilers, so the finals would have more drama and anticipation, but I literally couldn’t help it. Congrats Paige, you deserve it, can’t wait to see the match, the crowd will be crazy. And Charlotte Debut!!!!! Can’t wait for that.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    very surprised that it was, Emma Vs Paige in the finals, thought for sure it was gonna be Summer Vs Paige again, and start that little feud some mroe

    but yahhh congrats Paige, u deserve it

  • FameHooker18

    That was nice of Triple H to add some importance by coming out after Paige’s win. Sometimes WWE do care for the Divas,

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    also at the tapings Charlotte finally MADE HER DEBUT< yahhh very excited for that

  • CandiceMichelle&TorrieWilson

    Congradulations to Paige, The Diva of tomorrow!

  • VeteranArmy

    It’s celebration time! Wooooooo! Having Emma going over Summer in the semis shows that the WWE believes her too. Her time will be soon. Paige’ll probably drop the belt to her at some point when she goes to the main roster full time. Emma is a fantastic talent. But right now Emmalution will have to be put on delay, because it’s full on RamPaige time. As David Chappelle as Rick James would say, “It’s a celebration, bitches!”

    Congratulations Paige! Ohhhhhhhhh yeeeeeah, baby!

  • MomoMufFinSsFTW

    Anyone notice rosa there? And congrats paige

  • Ambrose-DivaFan

    So happy for paige, can only imagine the match they put on, can’t wait to see it!!!!

  • 09DHK

    Ever since I saw the design for the belt, I KNEW Paige was going to win it; although I’m kinda shocked that it came down to her and Emma as opposed to her and Summer Rae. Glad they didn’t go the predictable route. Congrats to Paige!

  • Bikini model destroyer


    She deserves it screw @Velvetskyfan

    • VeteranArmy

      LOL. Now now, there’s nothing wrong with wanting your favorite wrestler to win the belt. But being a wrestling fan for such a long time, I started to see the bigger picture when it comes to match booking. Let’s be civil about this, and just celebrate Paige’s much deserved NXT Womens Championship win.

  • Litaker61

    Great first choice of champion. The title really looks like it was made with her in mind which is kind of depressing when in all likeliness she will get called up and have to wear that monster of a butterfly belt at some point.

    • charovnica

      Well,if we have to be honest…if she’s really as good as we all think she is,she wouldn’t have a problem to make the butterfly seem important…just like Punk did to the horrible spinner.

    • VeteranArmy

      I’d love for Paige to throw down the Divas championship belt and bring out the WWE Womens Championship belt via what Shane Douglas did with the NWA World Championship belt and ECW Championship belt all those years ago.

  • Johnyfaction3

    What’s killing me and I am sure everyone else is that we have to wait a full month to see it! D: why!!!!!!!

  • charovnica

    I am also surprised it was Emma vs Paige,I really thought they were gonna have Summer vs Paige,but I am glad Paige won.I hope this will be followed by interesting matches and contenders.

  • Monkey Tennis

    First Eve champion. First NXT champion.

    Next WWE Divas champions.

  • joegibson1

    Judging by how NXT has been working this is just the beginning of Paige and she’ll be called up soon. I mean Big E and Seth Rollins both held the NXT championship either whilst debuting the main roster or afterwards so you can be sure Paige will be called up soon! I just cant believe she’s so young and headed for a real great career.

    • 09DHK

      AND Paige turns 21 this summer, so the likely hood of her being called up is very high; especailly since Summer Rae has essentially been called up.

  • art

    Rosa is in the ring clapping too so maybe she’ll compete down there for abit…congrats to paige & hopefully a feud comes out of it…

  • mckenzie

    Im glad they brough emma to the finals instead of Summer cause Summer Rae vs Paige was too predictable. June has been an excellent month for the all the big women’s divisions.

  • Sarah Connor

    Awesome!!!! Congratulations and very well deserved Paige.
