Rick and Julia, who are financially struggling, ask WWE mentor Hutch Morgan to sign their children. He at last consents to a tryout before a SmackDown showing at The O2 Arena, and advises Saraya to locate another ring name since they already have a “Britani”. The children get exhortation from Dwayne Johnson, and Saraya uses the name Paige from her most loved character on Charmed.

With Zak’s consolation, Paige leaves for America while he keeps wrestling on the British autonomous circuit, helping his folks' wrestling school, and watching out for his spouse and infant child.
After touching base at NXT located in Florida, Paige finds it hard in adapting to the lifestyle of WWE– essentially, because there is lack of inexperience female trainers and there is no intergender wrestling. Paige battles with performing promotions while Morgan is also belittling her. Morgan explains to Zak that he will never be marked to WWE which makes Zak an alcohol addict. Paige finds her parents are selling stock of her similarity without her consent and have booked her in a match with Zak planned for her Christmas holiday.
Paige, on her in-ring debut at a live competition in NXT, is harassed by the group which made her leave the ring crying. She chooses blonde her hair and splash tan to look like others, which made matters worse.

Morgan urges Paige to resign from WWE, Paige reveals to Zak about this while the latter tells their parents after defeating his sister. Paige told Zak that Morgan declined to sign him so as to help him concentrate on what is essential in his life and she returned to NXT after Zak abused her for trying abandoning their dream.
Zak stops drinking just as Paige’s training improved. Paige freezes up again in her Raw debut against AJ Lee – the Divas Champion in WWE. But, Lee begins the match and out of the blue puts the Divas Championship on hold which led to Paige’s victory as her family watched on TV. "This is MY home!" is the final word made by Paige after her victory.
In the epilogue that followed, Rick Bevis sells the shares in the family business, one of Zak’s students, a blind trainee, emerge as a wrestler. Paige continues to hold the title of the youngest Divas Champion.
