Paige Thanks Triple H For NXT

Paige thanked Triple H for creating NXT and giving the Divas a chance in a recent interview with Busted Open:

“Just seeing him come in and completely take what was then called FCW like under his wing and make it into this huge brand to the point where it sold out in Brooklyn – 15,000 people are coming to watch NXT – that’s MIND BLOWING … and it’s all because of that guy.
