Ahead of NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool II during a media call, Triple H joked that Paige "probably has some kids she doesn't know about." The joke was on the backend of Triple H discussing potential in-ring returns for Edge and Paige, noting that he wants to put their health first and how Edge has kids.
The remark upset Paige, who took to social media to say, "Even my boss jokes about me.. no wonder you guys still do it too." Renee Young, Nikki Bella, and others supported Paige on Twitter, calling out Triple H for his comments.
On Wednesday, Triple H issued a public apology for the joke.
I’ve reached out to @RealPaigeWWE to apologize. I made a terrible joke and I’m sorry if it offended her or anyone else.— Triple H (@TripleH) January 15, 2020
Paige revealed in an interview with Sportskeeda that Triple H had reached out to her and that they would be talking about things. She also stated that she didn't want to continually talk about the comment and found it to be inappropriate. You can find her full comments on the matter by clicking here.
