Paige wants a cameo role on Coronation Street – and she’s not afraid to shoot her shot.
The WWE star – who sadly had to retire from her in-ring career two years ago due to injury – is clearly a big fan of the cobbles (aren’t we all), and she couldn’t believe her luck when the show’s actual Twitter account starting following her on social media.
She tweeted: ‘For all my brits out here.. @itvcorrie just followed me and could NOT be happier, throw me in an episode Corrie Orrieeee (sic)’
It seems a Corrie appearance could potentially be in the cards now, after the ‘Corrie’ page replied to her original post and revealed they’d been in touch.
The reply read: ‘Hey! We just sent you a DM on your Insta!’
Paige – whose life and WWE journey was turned into Hollywood blockbuster Fighting With My Family – brilliantly paid tribute to her own wrestling catchphrase when a follower suggested she should take over Rovers Return and start pulling pints.
She teased: ‘This is my public house now!’
Paige hasn’t been shy about her acting ambitions, and she would love to follow in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s footsteps one day.
Speaking to Los Angeles last year, she told Metro.co.uk: ‘Oh yeah! Well, I can’t wrestle anymore – so give me a job, Hollywood!’
Fighting With My Family was created by The Rock and Stephen Merchant – who both appeared in the film – and told the story of Paige (played by Florence Pugh) as she went from the UK independent wrestling scene to the bright lights of WWE in the US.
Game of Thrones star Lena Heady and Hot Fuzz’s Nick Frost both appear as her parents Julia and Ricky Knight, and Jack Lowden was cast as her brother Zak.
