• Paige Reacts To A Fan Calling Her & Renee Young Fat
During a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about SmackDown Live Star Peyton Royce’s looks.
You can read his conversation with Bryan Alvarez below:
“Meltzer: I thought they had a cool act in NXT and on the main roster I don’t get a thing out of them. I don’t think their promos are particularly good, their wrestling isn’t good. I think they even like… I think Peyton Royce’s transformation to look more attractive… I don’t know, I don’t want to say. But I don’t think that…
Alvarez: That they were more attractive in NXT?
Meltzer: I thought so, yes. To me, yes. I would say so. But that’s neither here nor there.
Alvarez: No one’s saying she’s unattractive, by the way, everybody.
Meltzer: I know, no s***. Yeah, I didn’t say it at all. But she doesn’t stand out to me… when she was in NXT she did… she was a lot lighter.”
A fan recorded this conversation and sent it to Peyton on Twitter:
Is this normal stuff for a journalist to be talking about? Ever?

Below is what Peyton had to say about Meltzer’s comments:
So what would you have me do Dave… starve myself? ??? This is how nightmares for young women start. The females in your life must be proud. https://t.co/8MNpZNsR7m

Meltzer then issued an apology to Peyton:
I'd like to apologize to you. You are an exceedingly attractive woman. I do realize the lengths and pressures on women in the entertainment world to maintain unnatural looks at times and am glad you pointed this out. https://t.co/qkgOrpVQOX

However, it was too late as Meltzer received major backlash from WWE stars regarding his comments.
Below is how Renee Young reacted to this:
What a true piece of sweltering hot garbage. You’re an angel too good for this earth. He’d be lucky if you gave him the time of day. Which you would, because you’re also a great person. Love ya girl. Let’s set better examples
— Renee Young (@ReneeYoungWWE) August 15, 2018
Renee’s response didn’t sit well with a fan and he posted the following on Twitter (he later deleted the tweet):
“Shut up Renee! Dave Meltzer already apologized for it. By the way, you’re fat too. Not as fat as Paige, but you’re getting there.”
Paige then replied the following to that fan:
Yo everyone. Show this guy some love the only way he should receive it. ?? https://t.co/0IR2Rsablb
