• Paige Forced To Retire From In-Ring Competition

According to PWInsider, former WWE Divas Champion & current Raw Superstar Paige’s in-ring career is over. WWE officials told Paige backstage on Raw this week that her time as a wrestler is over and her situation is similar to that of WWE Hall of Famer Edge (who was also forced to retire from in-ring competition).

Paige’s physical condition became worse after a Live Event match where she got kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and she suffered a Stinger. You can watch it below:

Paige underwent a neck surgery in 2016 and was out of action for about 17 months. She made her return to WWE programming in November 2017.

WWE hasn’t made an official announcement on her status yet.
