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.
“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.”
