Paige's In-Ring Career Could Reportedly Be Over

The situation is said to be similar to that which retired Edge.

Former Divas and NXT Women's Champion Paige may never wrestle again for WWE, according to a report by PWInsider.

The report states:

'In a situation described as similar to WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland's medical disqualification from the ring, WWE star Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis, 25 years old) was informed this week that she will not be cleared to return to the ring after her most recent in-ring injury, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources.  It is believed Paige was given the news at the Raw taping this past Monday.   We have been told by multiple sources she is "done" as an in-ring wrestler.'

After a long period out with injury problems, Paige's most recent incident occurred during a six-woman tag team match on December 28th 2017, during an exchange with Sasha Banks.

Paige had been announced for the first ever women's Royal Rumble match, which will take place at the Royal Rumble pay per view on January 28th. She was believed to be one of the favourites to win the match behind Asuka and former UFC Champion Ronda Rousey, the latter of which is believed to be training for a professional wrestling career.

PWInsider's report also speculates on the possibility of Paige becoming a non-wrestling performer, or at least remaining in current storylines long enough to be written out of contention for the Rumble match:

'[...] all signs are that she will relegated to a non-physical role for the company going forward.   One would assume the company will devise a way to write her out of the Rumble match without any physicality, similar to how Daniel Bryan is not allowed to be involved in anything physical in his current role as Smackdown General Manager.'

If this is true, it would be particularly sad news given Paige's youth. She is still only 25 years of age, and saw her main roster run interrupted due to various issues.
