Saraya-Jade Bevis (born 17 August 1992) is an English professional wrestler. She currently works for the WWE where she competes under the ring name Paige. She is a one-time WWE Divas Champion and one-time NXT Women's Champion. She is also known under the ring name Britani Knight, which she used while performing on the independent circuit.

On the April 7, 2014 episode of Raw, Paige made her main roster debut in the WWE. She gave her congratulations to WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee on her successful title defense at WrestleMania XXX. AJ challenged Paige to a match and put her championship on the line. In the match, Paige was able to defeat AJ and win her first Divas Championship in WWE. When she won the championship, she became the first female wrestler to hold a developmental (NXT Women's) and primary (WWE Divas) championship at the same time and also became the youngest Divas Champion.[1] On the July 30, 2014 episode of Raw, AJ Lee returned to the WWE and defeated Paige for the Divas Championship.[2].
