Paige's WWE In-Ring Career Reportedly Over Following Injury

Share

Per the report, Paige was informed Monday at Raw that she will not be cleared to return to the ring.

However, on December 27th in New York, Paige was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks during a six-women's match. The match was stopped and a stretcher was brought out, though she eventually was able to walk out on her own power.

Some sad news to start the weekend with- according to a report from PWInsider, WWE superstar Paige is being forced to end her career as a wrestler due to an injury sustained at a house show last month.

Much emphasis had been placed upon her return, especially after Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announced his production company was making a film based on Paige's route to WWE success. WWE is still advertising her for the women's Royal Rumble match. Paige, obviously not ready for the bump, went down.

Paige recently returned to television after a long absence due to a previous injury.

The situation that Paige is in right now is said to be similar to what happened to Edge when he had to retire from the ring.

By September 2011, Paige had signed a developmental contract with WWE, and reported to the company's developmental territory known as Florida Championship Wrestling. Perhaps in the meantime she'll continue to keep managing the other members of Absolution, although that would probably require some type of onscreen explanation of why she was no longer participating in matches. Paige has also been branding herself as "Saraya" with the help of former WWE star Rosa Mendes.

It has been a trying few months for Paige, who had three screws inserted in her neck in October 2016 while suspended under WWE's wellness policy.

It's insane to think that we may never see Paige in a wrestling ring again, and I can't stress how very bad this news is. With her Divas championship win, she was also the youngest woman to hold the belt at 21 years of age.
