Paige Appears On Chasing Glory Podcast

Paige On Sasha Banks Being Blamed For Her Career-Ending Injury, Bella/Morgan

Paige recently appeared as a guest on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some of the highlights where Paige spoke about the recent Brie Bella / Liv Morgan incident and how it compares and contrasts to her own similar incident in a match in the past with Sasha Banks.

On the botch between Brie Bella and Liv Morgan that resulted in Morgan suffering a concussion: “Accidents happen. It’s kind of the same thing that happened between Liv Morgan and Brie Bella. Accidents happen in the ring. I am not going to hold Sasha Banks accountable for what happened. It is what it is. We have all been doing this for years. At one point one of us is going to hurt the other person.”

On Morgan being brought back into the match after suffering the injury: “We are not going to be perfect all of the time, which is why I feel bad for Brie Bella; she has never hurt anyone. This is the first time she has hurt anyone and she gets blamed for it? Come on, dude. It was an accident. Liv Morgan doesn’t blame her. The thing that I don’t like about it is the fact that her teammates brought her back in to take a suplex even though they knew shew as knocked out. That was the thing that I didn’t like. Don’t come back in for the suplex, you know you are hurt. We have concussion meetings all of the time. Take care of yourself, but also, your tag partners, as much as I love them and are very sweet girls, but they know she got knocked out. You don’t let her back in the ring again.”

On her similar situation with Sasha Banks and how it was handled differently: “That was what Sasha Banks did for me. As soon as she saw that I got knocked out she said that she wasn’t going to continue with the match. That is a professional. I was trying to continue the match but she told me to stop. She said that I was going to hurt myself even more. I get where Liv was coming from by wanting to continue but stop, it is not worth it. You can end up like me, but Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan, take care of your teammate. Don’t let her back in the ring again. The referee in the match, don’t let her back in the ring again. I felt so bad for Brie Bella. I felt bad for both of the women, but I felt bad for her backlash. Had it been anyone else there wouldn’t have been that much backlash, but because she is a ‘Bella’ she receives that type of criticism.”
