Paige has had quite the career over the past few years, but after she was forced to retire last year, the company has found a place for her in the Women’s Division as the manager of Asuka and Kairi Sane, who are The Kabuki Warriors.
The two women recently defeated The IIconics in Japan, which means that they will be given a Women’s Tag Team Championship match in the near future. Despite the fact that Asuka and Sane are being pushed forward right now, Paige recently spoke to The Sun while promoting “Fighting With My Family” being released on DVD where she talked about being frustrated throughout the creative process.
“If we don’t get used I get really frustrated because we’re a good tag team and we need to be utilized. Sometimes the writers have so much on their plate with everyone else’s storylines, they put things on the backburner. I have to remind them, ‘Ok, but there is a women’s tag team title… I’m like, ‘What the hell dudes? Let’s make something happen.'”
“It frustrates me but once you actually get to speak with Vince and Hunter about your problems and frustrations, they’re always the first to say, ‘Let’s change this.’ If you go up to writers it’s like talking to a brick wall sometimes, whereas if you go to Vince and Hunter they’re like, ‘If you have a problem we can change that for you.'”
“The Kabuki Warriors can be a force to be reckoned with and that was the plan from the beginning… After the match in Tokyo hopefully, we’ll get to build towards a pay-per-view, which gives the girls something to look forward to. So I’m happy we have a boss that really listens to us,” she said via WrestlingInc.
While The Kabuki Warriors look like they have a bright future ahead of them, Paige’s career doesn’t seem as clear since she noted that she didn’t want to be part of WWE’s creative team in the future, but instead would like to remain with the company in some capacity so that she can pursue an acting career.
“One way or another I’ll always be a part of WWE, whether it’s in front of the camera or behind the camera. I’d love to do a GM role again. I felt like I really found myself in that role. It really pushed me. Also, I love acting, I truly really love it. Obviously wrestling always will be my first passion but unfortunately, I can’t do that anymore.”
