The WWE wrestler was on her way out of Newark airport Friday when she told us the worst part about being a woman is that bummer time of the month.

But Paige says unlike most women … it helps her in the ring, and any guy who lives with their significant other will understand her reasoning.

Other WWE Divas … you’ve been warned.

IT’S the American reality show that’s taken the world by storm and if you still haven’t tuned in to Total Divas, then you’re missing out. The series, now in its third season, follows the personal and professional lives of female wrestling ‘divas’ – and it’s pretty kick-ass.

Saraya-Jade Belvis, known in the ring as Paige, works for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and recently joined Total Divas. She’s the only British cast member. The 22-year-old from Norwich grew up in a wrestling family and fell in love with the sport when her dad convinced her to stand in for a girl who missed a show.

She told us: “I started properly when I was about 14. I had my try-out for WWE when I was 18. It’s a pretty rare job but it’s incredible. It’s the most odd job to ever have. I completely adore it and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

When it comes to diet and fitness, it isn’t all hardcore workouts and super clean food 24 hours a day. In fact, Paige admits she and the girls can’t resist tucking into calorific fast food every now and again.

“We do have a lot of McDonald’s and Burger Kings,” she says. And I do love burgers and pizza. I’m not actually a big chocolate fan but I like cheesecake so I eat a lot of that.”

And how does she burn off all that junk food?

“I go to the gym four times a week and I do a lot of lifting. Sometimes I’ll run up the stairs at stadiums too. My favourite is squats though. I love to squat. Weirdly, I love the feeling of the pain.”

Squats aside, a big part of Paige’s life at the moment is centred around Total Divas. And she’s already gained a new best friend in the form of fellow WWE wrestler Alicia Fox.

She said: “I’m really happy that I get to give Alicia Fox to you guys, we’re just best friends and she is the best. But I do get on with everyone, they’re all really sweet and helpful to me. The girls are all big sweethearts. I love my girls.”

Paige’s fellow Total Divas are already used to her British accent but fans of the show are still surprised.

“A lot of people forget I’m British and so they see the show and they’re like ‘Oh wait, she has a really cool accent’.”

Being a good role model is vital for Paige who likes to teach young girls not to be afraid to stand out and be themselves.

She explained: “It’s really cool because these girls look up to me and they’ll write to me saying ‘I can be myself now, you’ve saved me’ and I just love that. That’s the kind of role model I want to be.”

Her advice to wannabe female wrestlers comes from superstar wrestler and actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who told her to ‘Stay humble and hungry’.

“That’s the best advice I could ever give anyone. If you stay humble and hungry the whole time, you’re gonna get very far.”

We’ll make sure we do that then!

Naomi was in the ring set for a match. Paige and Natalya joined on commentary. They plugged their match with the Bella Twins at the Royal Rumble. The Bella’s then made their entrance with Brie in action. They had a PIP promo where they were catty towards Nattie and Paige. They called Paige a vampire and Natty a nagging wife.

Brie quickly sent Naomi to the outside and then tossed her into the turnbuckles a few times. Brie then hit a bulldog and a facebuster a moment later for the win. Most of the match was the commentators talking over the limited action. Naomi got almost no offense.

Winner: Brie Bella

It’s rare for a Diva to enter the Royal Rumble Match, but that doesn’t mean the women of WWE can’t throw down at a moment’s notice. Check out the Divas in their battle gear with this exclusive WWE.com gallery.

Paige says she doesn’t need any friends in the cutthroat world of Divas competition, but if she hopes to emerge victorious at Royal Rumble, she will have to put her trust in Natalya when the two dynamic Divas team to take on a common enemy: The Bella Twins.

Though their relationship has had its share of ups and downs recently (thanks in no small part to the meddlesome ways of Natalya’s husband, Tyson Kidd, who caused Paige a pivotal loss last week), The Diva of Tomorrow and The Queen of Harts seem to be united in one thing: their disdain for Divas Champion Nikki and twin sister Brie.

Since the start of 2015, Paige and Natalya have each managed to upend Nikki in non-title singles matches. In each case, their wins were partly enabled by the presence of the other at ringside. Paige neutralized Brie at ringside on the Jan. 5 edition of Raw, paving the way for Natalya to pin Nikki. The following night on Main Event, The Diva of Tomorrow scored a victory of her own over Nikki when Natalya stopped an interfering Brie.

Things hit a snag the following week when Kidd accompanied Natalya to ringside for a bout between Paige and Brie and stepped onto the ring apron, distracting Paige and causing her to lose. Afterward, the enraged raven-haired Diva insisted she didn’t need friends and called Kidd an “idiot,” but nonetheless aided Natalya in beating Nikki on SmackDown days later.

Will Paige and Natalya manage to get along when they stand across the ring from the fearless Divas Champion and her equally strategic twin sister at Royal Rumble? Will Kidd, who has seemingly taken an interest in Nikki Bella, wearing her hat and necklace, poke his nose into his wife’s business, and if so, what will that mean for The Diva of Tomorrow? And now that they’ve been identified as a common target, how will Nikki & Brie Bella react inside the ring?

Find out when four of the Divas division’s top athletes square off at Royal Rumble this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, live on WWE Network.
