• Triple H Issues A Public Apology To Paige
During a recent interview, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H talked about the possibility of Edge and Paige coming out of retirement.
During this interview, Triple H talked about how everything depends on Edge & Paige’s long term health and their family.
Then Triple H went on to make a joke about Paige:
“Edge has kids and Paige probably has some she doesn’t know of.”
You can watch it below:
This led to Paige tweeting the following:
“Even my boss jokes about me.. no wonder you guys still do it too.”
Renee Young then went on to support Paige:
Big love to Paige. She’s been to hell and back but still some people wanna make jokes. We need (and she deserves) real change. https://t.co/vqdkWNyLMa

Paige’s boyfriend, Ronnie Radke, went on to post the following on Twitter:
“Hey @WWE you should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourselves for letting someone like @TripleH run your company and publicly disrespect one of your divas @RealPaigeWWE biased or not I hate watching her cry over YOU. Hasn’t she been through enough?”
He later deleted his tweet.
Gary Cassidy interviewed Paige and asked her about Triple H’s joke. Below is what Paige replied:
“Obviously I was a little bit perplexed, a little bit taken aback, because he’s someone that I truly look up to and he’s always been very respectful, so I feel like he got caught up, maybe, in a joke, that I just don’t think was appropriate to joke about.
I don’t know, I feel like it’s something that I don’t need to continually keep talking about because I feel like people have done a pretty good job of that.
He’s definitely reached out. We’re going to be talking about some things, yeah.”
Triple H has now issued a public apology to Paige. Below is what he tweeted:
I’ve reached out to @RealPaigeWWE to apologize. I made a terrible joke and I’m sorry if it offended her or anyone else.
