WWE star Paige has got herself her some new ink, which might cause some difficulties for her employers.
British wrestler Paige, 25, showed off her new tattoo earlier today, but the wording might cause a bit of a stir with her family-friendly employees.
Tattooist Earl Funk (astonishing name, by the way) inked the words ‘Talk shit, get bit’ which isn’t as iconic as ‘chat shit, get banged’ but still gets the point across, on to Paige’s hands.
The size of placement of her tattoo means that the chances of her being able to cover them before stepping into the ring are trim. Except she starts wrestling in gloves, which she has done in the past, to be fair. Or she could just wrap her hands in bandages…I’m grasping at straws now.
The WWE is excellently strict when it comes to any swearing, so it looks like she might have some explaining to do tomorrow morning.
In my opinion, I don’t really understand how the word ‘shit’ would be considered more passionately frightening to a child than seeing someone get exhausted over the head with a chair, but that’s show business, I guess.
Photos of the fresh ink were shared on Instagram, with the Mirror reporting she chose the new tattoo in celebration of the opening of ‘The Saraya Store’ in Anaheim, California. It’s a good job she has this new line of revenue lined up, you know, just in case.
Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, recently had to pulled from a number of live shows after what looked to be a horrific injury.
Back in December, she was taken out by a kick from Sasha Banks during a tag-team match on the WWE Holiday Tour, resultant in her being carried off on a stretcher with a suspected neck injury.
She was pulled from the remaining dates of the tour and had to miss the Royal Rumble. It’s still not been formally announced when she will next return to the ring.
The ‘stinger’ came just months after Paige had to undergo surgery on her neck. Here’s hoping that 2018 is a better year for her.
