• Paige Says Her In-Ring Return Is A Matter Of “When”, Not “If”
On Twitch, former WWE Divas Champion Paige talked about her WWE contract and her future in pro-wrestling.
Below are the highlights:
On when her WWE contract expires:
“My contract is up in June of next year. Who knows if they would want to give me a new contract? Who’s to say they would want to? If they did, I’d love to have Twitch as a part of the contract.”
If she’ll ever come out of retirement:
“I’m not f**king done. I’m not done yet. This is going to be my comeback story. I’m inspired. I’m so inspired by the people coming back to wrestling and the more I think about it, I’m like, ‘Okay, mentally, I’m ready to go.’ I’m going to start working around, getting in the ring a little bit. Maybe. We’ll see.
This is not saying I’m making a comeback tomorrow. It’s a long f**king road. I still have to get cleared by doctors, I have to get cleared by WWE. It’s such a big process, but emotionally, I’m ready.
The past few months, I didn’t think I was emotionally ready, but no, I’m f**king ready to get back on the horse. Even if it takes me a year. One step at a time, build to it, that’s exactly what I’m doing. There’s a whole journey and it’s going to take some time.”
If she’ll return to the ring with AJ Lee:
“If AJ comes back, that would be a separate occasion. You can’t have two massive comebacks in one day. I’m not going to tell you if I am going to return, but when I do — and I’m saying when because I f**king am — when I do, I will not tell you. It will be a surprise.”
If she’ll leave WWE:
“I’m not leaving WWE, not that I know of (laughs). Did I get fired? I’m still working for WWE. My contract isn’t up yet. I love the WWE.”
Paige was forced to retire in 2018 at the age of 25, due to neck issues.
