• Paige Gets Physical At An Indy Event Involving Her Mother
Saraya Knight faced Britt Baker for the iPPV Women’s Championship this past weekend at Burning Bridges iPPV, which is Blackcraft Wrestling’s first iPPV. Knight became the first women’s champion for the promotion after her daughter Paige interfered in the match.
Paige slapped Knight’s opponent, Britt Baker, when the referee was distracted. She was later shown in the crowd during the musical performance by Falling in Reverse, who closed the show.
You can check out photos of Paige at the show below:

No word available on what WWE officials thought of this. While Paige didn’t take any bump, WWE officials refuse to let WWE wrestlers, who retired due to injuries, do anything physical (at least under their watch).
