As we noted before, PWInsider reported that 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).
