Athena wants to see Paige join her in AEW.
It looks like Paige will be leaving the WWE when her contract expires next month. One star who made the jump from WWE to AEW was Athena following her release from the company. Athena is currently working a program with Jade Cargill and The Baddie Section in AEW.
While speaking to Steve Fall from NBC Sports Boston, Athena made it clear she would love to see Paige in AEW.
“Started with them, that was the first like mainstream women’s match that got time that made people like want more and knowing that she’s capable of that not to mention seeing her story in the movie and I’ve wrestled her mom on the indies before and just got my ass handed to me excuse my language, but like of course like she’s someone I’ve always wanted to wrestle with. I actually rolled around with her when she was training to come back.”
“She is an invaluable superstar in her own right. She is absolutely phenomenal whether she’s going to be a mouthpiece, whether she’s able to get back in the ring like any company would be like stupid not to try to snatch her up. I think her eventually returning to wrestling anywhere would be beneficial to whatever companies snatches her up, but I think AEW will be a smart move again because there’s something to be added to the women’s division”
Time will tell if Athena will get her wish of Paige joining AEW. Paige is set to leave the WWE on July 7th when her contract expires. She has already confirmed she will be returning to her families wrestling promotion in the UK in October.
