It’s been more than three-and-a-half years since NXT Women’s champion Paige showed up on Raw the night after WrestleMania 30 and captured the Divas title. Especially considering how much the British Superstar has remained in the news - for a wide variety of wrestling and non-wrestling reasons - since April 2014, it sometimes feels like she’s been a main roster Superstar “forever”.
As the above video reminds us though, an amazing thing about The Diva of Tomorrow is she’s still the youngest woman on Raw or SmackDown. And if weren’t for 205 Live’s Noam Dar, Paige would still be the youngest performer on the main roster - period*.
After her return on the Nov. 20 Raw made a big impression on the WWE Universe, and with a clean bill of health, a Hollywood biopic on the way and, hopefully, the personal drama of the last year behind her, the sky would seem to be the limit for the 25 year old.
* As several commenters have pointed out, this video doesn’t account for the other ladies who debuted this week, as Raw’s Sonya Deville and SmackDown’s Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan are all younger than Paige. So while she remains one of the youngest, she’s no longer first among women or second overall.
An updated “Top Five” would be: Morgan (23 years old), Deville (24 years, 2 months), Logan (24 years, 2 months, 15 days), Dar (24 years, 3 months, 27 days), Paige.
