Saraya Reveals How Her Britani Knight In-Ring Name Came About

Former WWE Star and current AEW Star Saraya (Paige) appeared on AEW’s Unrestricted podcast to discuss a variety of topics such as how her Britani Knight in-ring name came about.

Saraya said:

“My dad loved Gladys Knight growing up, so he named himself after Gladys Knight, which is better than our real last name, which is Bevis. The amount of frickin jokes I had about Bevis, Beavis and Butt-Head jokes, days on days and days. Britani came from when I was younger, my mom used to dye my hair all these different colors and she bleached my hair blonde. My dad thought I looked like Britney Spears, so he called me Britani. He had to come up with a name and he called me Britani because my mom was using Saraya. She still uses Saraya to this day. I’m like sorry Mom, but I have to. So yeah, that’s how Britani Knight came about.”
