Paige Responds To ‘Twitter Police’
Paige has responded to fans on Twitter who lambasted Scott Hall for Tweeting her a “creepy” message, saying that she “like it.”

Paige had shared a short clip of a sexy pin attempt that distracted the referee, to which the WWE Hall of Famer replied:
@RealPaigeWWE Such a naughty girl. I have a good mind to bend you over my knee and spank you
— Scott Hall (@SCOTTHALLNWO) August 8, 2015
Fans immediately jumped on Hall, who is known for posting sexual content and Tweeting at younger women, but Paige doesn’t need any “White Knights” saying she took it as a joke:
People are taking this way too seriously on Twitter. It's obviously a joke. Plus. I like it ;) haha https://t.co/wtkOvWJ3da

The “Bad Guy” said people were being far too judgemental:
@RandomWWE1043 It is a joke between she and I. I've met her unlike all the judgmental Twitter police. Why is everyone obsessively PC?

SmackDown Match Botched
The Diva’s tag team match on SmackDown – Becky Lynch & Charlotte vs Naomi & Sasha Banks – reportedly ended several minutes early after Lynch missed a cue.
Naomi reversed a pin attempt from Charlotte and Becky was supposed to jump in and break the cover, but she remained selling on the ring apron and Charlotte failed to kick out herself. Referees are instructed to make the pin if competitors fail to kick out because it would obviously draw undue attention if they paused for no reason.
Despite winning the match in Kayfabe, Naomi was visibly upset at the outcome and the referee also looked a bit confused.
