WWE diva Paige is one of the most metal performers currently active in WWE. Her real name, Saraya, is a tribute to Slayer frontman Tom Araya. How awesome is that? This weekend, Paige revealed she has another connection to the heavy metal scene, by revealing she is dating bassist Kalan Blehm, who plays with Attila, the band responsible for the best hip hop music video in heavy metal history.
Paige went public with the relationship by sharing a photo of the two of them sitting courtside at an Orlando Magic basketball game.
It looks like the happy couple has been together since before the holidays.
The duo seem like a good match, posting this photo where both look great with the caption "We’re too weird to live and too rare to die."
Paige got out of a relationship with fellow wrestler Alberto Del Rio in late 2017, shortly before beginning to date Blehm. Previously, she also dated A Day to Remember guitarist Kevin Skaff, a relationship that was the central storypoint for Paige's time on the E! reality show Total Divas.
