Paige is back on Raw! She brought some NXT stars with her too, and for those who don't know, this is everything you need to know about them.
The WWE Universe has been waiting with baited breath for Paige to return to WWE television ever since it was revealed that she has been training at the Performance Center and was backstage for the last few shows. The two-time Divas Champion has been away for almost a year and a half and finally on Monday night she made her triumphant return.

A number one contender's match to decide who would be next to face Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's Championship was taking place when Paige's music hit. Naturally the four women in the ring froze, wondering what exactly the British Superstar had to say and why she was back. At first it seemed like nothing more than a declaration that she was returning, that was until Paige revealed she had not come to Raw alone.
As Paige made her way to the ring it quickly became clear that she had in fact brought two people with her, and they ambushed the Superstars competing in the match. Those women were Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. The three of them laid waste to Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Mickie James while the fourth competitor Alicia Fox fled back to the locker room.
Fans who don't watch NXT may not be familiar with the two ladies that accompanied Paige to the ring. Both women have been competing and training down at Full Sail but have very different backgrounds. Deville is from the world of MMA and naturally utilizes a lot of what she knows from that world in her wrestling arsenal. Rose on the other hand was a fitness and figure competitor before entering the world of pro wrestling. Both women were contestants on Tough Enough in 2015 and although neither of them won, clearly WWE saw something in them.
While Paige's return was not a surprise and has been expected for a while now, the appearances of Rose and Deville were pretty big surprises. While both have wrestled on NXT television, neither were particularly high on the totem pole at Full Sail. They have been chosen for the main roster though, and the idea of an all female faction led by Paige tearing through the Raw roster is definitely one worth getting behind.
