• Paige Reveals Why She Was Removed From WWE Total Divas
During a recent appearance on Lilian Garcia’s “Chasing Glory” podcast, former WWE Divas Champion Paige was asked why she was removed from WWE Total Divas.
Below is what Paige said:
“No [it was not Paige’s decision to stop doing Total Divas]. Yeah, yeah [Total Divas is just changing casts]. Like, I think the Bellas kind of focus more on Total Bellas. And then, I wasn’t wrestling anymore, so I understood their point.
Like, when I got the call, they were just like, ‘we want you to be somewhat part of the show, but not a main cast member because you’re not wrestling, so, like, it’s about female wrestlers.’
And I was like, ‘yeah, I totally get that, but then I would rather not be part of the show at all. Not even a little glimpse of me. I’d rather not be a part of it unless it’s something super important.’
I’m kind of happy that I kind of took a step back from that because I feel that with Total Divas, there [are] a lot of just like memories that I would like to forget too because I’ve had ex-boyfriends on there, and I was a party animal.
I just want to have a new show where they can see, like, the new me. Like, the adult me. And the more focused I am, the more sober I am, that’s what I want to do, just like, just build something completely new, like a fresh start kind of thing.”
