Paige Set To Retire From In-Ring Competition

Paige Set To Retire From In-Ring Competition

Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports that she was informed that WWE will not clear her medically following her latest injury. It is believed Paige was given the news at the Raw taping this past Monday.

During a six woman tag team bout on 12/28/17 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island, Paige had her back to Sasha Banks, who was behind her against the turnbuckles.

The site claims that Paige is believed to have suffered from a stinger, which led to her losing feeling in her extremities.

She had been slated to take part in WWE's first ever women's Royal Rumble match later this month, but has obviously been pulled from the show.

The Anti-Diva recently announced her entry into the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble at the January 28 Royal Rumble pay-per-view, but her status likely means WWE will be forced to find a replacement. She's well liked in the company, and could transition to another role, according to PWInsider. The strategy behind putting the group together may have been to devise a way to limit Paige's ring time due to her previous neck issues, while also getting her back on TV in a prominent role. When Paige came up to the main-roster and defeated AJ Lee for the Divas Championship in 2014, it seemed she had a bright future in the WWE.

However, since 2016 she's been involved in multiple drug violations that kept her out of action for a long period of time and had a major neck injury that needed surgery.

As a result, she will be "done" as an in-ring performer. She and El Patron were also involved in a high-profile incident at airport that led police to consider domestic violence charges against both wrestlers.

Paige won that title on two occasions, and was also the first NXT Women's champion. I hope that she can remain with the company in some capacity, either as a General Manager, or perhaps a trainer in NXT. One of the characters in the film is based on Paige.
