Video: Paige breaks down backstage after winning WWE Divas title from AJ Lee on Raw

This is so cool.

Just after winning the WWE Divas championship from AJ Lee on last night's (April 7, 2014) episode of Monday Night Raw in New Orleans, Paige walked backstage and had the awesome moment you see above. She was greeted by many of the Divas on the roster, including Emma, Lana, Summer Rae, Alicia Fox, Eva Marie, Rosa Mendes, Natalya, and Aksana, all eager to engulf her in hugs while she broke down in tears after accomplishing her dream.

She was then interviewed and said the following, all while sobbing nearly uncontrollably:

"I'm trying to stop. Usually Paige is very angry. But this is the most overwhelming experience of my life because this is what I've been trying to get to my whole wrestling career. So this is the achievement, a dream come true. Like everything was worth it, you know? Like every high, actually having to leave my family, it's all been worth it. It's amazing. I'm sorry. I'm the WWE Divas champion. I can't believe it."

It's great that WWE decided to air this breach of kayfabe. It's 2014, it's the so-called "reality era", and we can separate the characters from the actual people. This is an amazing, emotional moment we are getting to see here and that's a real treat.

This makes that crowd in New Orleans even more amazing for giving Paige such a big pop when she won that title. She will never forget this, and that's just awesome.
