"To be the first NXT Women's Champion is such an honour" - Paige
WWE NXT diva Paige defeated her nemesis Emma in the finals of the NXT Women’s Title tournament to become the first ever NXT Women’s champion. An overjoyed Paige, spoke to WWE.com and she had this to say:
“To be the first NXT Women’s Champion is such an honor. It’s so overwhelming that it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. Emma gave me a heck of a match and I have so much respect for her. We made history. I still can’t believe I can say that I’ve made history in WWE. I cried and cried when I won it and the support from everyone has been crazy. I’m getting goose bumps and teary-eyed just talking about it.”
WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H came to the ring to raise her hand after she won the title.
