Saraya-Jade Bevis (born 17 August 1992) is an English professional wrestler and actress. She is signed to WWE, where she performs under the ring name Paige. She is a former three-time WWE Divas Champion, a former WWE Women's Tag Team Champion, a record 33-time WWE Women's Hardcore Champion and the inaugural NXT Women's Champion. She is the only person to have held both the Divas and NXT Women's Championships concurrently, and as of May 2016, her 308-day reign as the NXT Women's Champion is still the longest in WWE history.

At the age of 13, Bevis made her debut in 2005 in the World Association of Wrestling, a promotion run by her family, under the ring name Britani Knight. She went on to hold several championships on independent circuits within Europe. In 2011, she signed a contract with WWE and started wrestling within its developmental systems, eventually debuting on WWE's main roster in April 2014. In her debut match on the main roster, she won the Divas Championship for the first time, becoming the second woman in WWE history to win a championship in her debut match and the youngest champion in the title's history at the age of 21.
