Due To Injury, Paige's WWE In-Ring Career Is Over

Share

However, due to these circumstances, it appears she has no chance of getting back into the match. She underwent tests, and after the neck injury and subsequent surgery that left her sidelined for over a year between 2016 and 2017, the decision was made to not clear her. It's believed that Paige was given the news this past Monday, Jan. 8, at the Raw taping.

By September 2011, Paige had signed a developmental contract with WWE, and reported to the company's developmental territory known as Florida Championship Wrestling. WWE management likes her and is likely to continue to involve her somehow.

WWE initially didn't expect the injury to be serious enough and maintained her in the women's Royal Rumble match which takes place on January 28 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The trio of Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, and Paige were gaining traction as an ass-kicking trio of women who seemed hellbent on taking over the RAW Women's Division.

Paige just recently came back from a neck injury after a long 17 months away from the ring.

The irony of the situation, a number of sources have pointed out, is that no one would think there was anything physically wrong by looking at Paige, making it even more unthinkable that she, at 25, is being removed from WWE competition. With her Divas championship win, she was also the youngest woman to hold the belt at 21 years of age.

It's insane to think that we may never see Paige in a wrestling ring again, and I can't stress how bad this news is. She was featured on reality series Total Divas, so that's a possible vehicle for her, as are WWE Studios feature films. It's also possible the company could tap her to Coach in the NXT system or attempt to transition her into another on camera role. She started in her family's World Association of Wrestling (WAW) when she was only 13 years old and by 19 was touring North America, working for SHIMMER.

Paige has never been far from the headlines throughout her career and the last 12 months have been a turbulent time for the British born star.
