At the young age of 23, the WWE Diva known as Paige, has already risen to superstardom. She made her debut about two years ago on the main roster and quickly won over the fans. Paige already has a list of accolades that are Hall of Fame worthy. She is the youngest wrestler ever to win a Divas Championship, and she has won the title twice. This made her one of the most popular Divas of all-time, with a huge fan base to prove it. She has a very impressive social media presence, with 2.9 million Instagram followers and counting. Paige is also a star on the on E!'s Total Divas. If she stays on the path that she has paved for herself, she might just become the greatest women to ever enter the ring.
There is much more to Paige than all the accolades and her followers. Her path to stardom was no cakewalk, as she had to work incredibly hard to get where she is today. Raised by two professional wrestlers, Paige has a real love for wrestling, and is not in it for the fame or money. It is a great feeling knowing that a beloved wrestler has been a lifelong fan of the sport. Being a Champion in NXT, and then multiple times for the WWE, it seems wherever she goes she dominates the media coverage and sometimes crosses over into the mainstream. Being so young, we may just be witnessing one of the greatest wrestling careers unfold right before our very eyes.
Considering Paige is one of the most popular wrestlers in the entire sport, there are bound to be some enthusiastic fans of her. Although you may watched every match, bought every piece of merchandise, or perhaps seen every episode of Total Divas, hopefully you can learn something new about Paige in this list.
Here are 15 things you didn't know about Paige.
15 She Owns A Coffee Company
14 Didn't Care For Wrestling Early On
13 She was Engaged
12 Her Real Name
11 She Has Scoliosis
10 Debuted At 13
In 2005, while Paige was 13, she was asked to step in for a wrestler that didn't show up to her parents' promotion. She debuted with the ring name Britani Knight. Her father said she looked like Brittany Spears, at the time, as she was wearing her hair blonde. However, her first officially recorded match would be one year later. When you think about it, 14 isn't that old either.

7 First WWE Tryout Didn't Go Well
6 Youngest Champion In WWE History
On an episode of Raw, AJ Lee was boasting and celebrating the longest reign in the title's history (at the time). Paige, who was the NXT Women's Champion at the time, made a cameo appearance to congratulate AJ. Being the great heel that she was, AJ did not take kindly to this and slapped Paige in the face. This set the stage for Paige's WWE debut, a Championship match between her and AJ.
5 She Has Been With A Woman
4 She Wanted To Be A Zoologist
3 She Lived With Jake "The Snake" Roberts
2 She May Not Be Able To Have Kids
1 She Was Subjected To Wrestling...In The Womb!
Yes! Paige's mother, unknowingly of course, wrestled while she was pregnant with little baby Paige. Her mother, Julia Bevis wrestles under the name Sweet Saraya, and at age 44, she is still performing strong! Thankfully, even though Sweet Saraya wrestled while pregnant, Paige turned out to be the Diva we all know and love.
At this young age and with this many accomplishments, no one can predict how far her career may go. However, I think we can safely say that her future accomplishments will be just as impressive.
