What's the connection between WWE Diva Paige and Slayer's Tom Araya?

It's WrestleMania week, the most exciting week of the year for wrestling fans. Even though the buildup has been subpar this year, I have a feeling the show will deliver.

Speaking of WrestleMania, one of the women, ahem, divas competing this Sunday is goth-inspired sensation Paige. She is competing with her fellow "anti-Diva" AJ Lee to take on the Bella Twins, WWE's version of the high school head cheerleaders (coincidentally they are each dating the equivalent of the quarterback of the company).

What stands out about Paige is she is a rocker at heart and in an recent interview with Metal Hammer, she revealed her mom is an even bigger metalhead:

Weird story, but my real name (Soraya) is actually named after the band Slayer ha ha! My mum's a total rockhead – she's got a Motörhead tattoo, loads of piercings – she's a badass. When I was growing up she'd listen to Bon Jovi and Aerosmith and stuff like that. I blame her.

I'm assuming Soraya is a combination of "Slayer" and frontman "Tom Araya," right? Kudos to Paige for having such a cool mom.
