• SmackDown Star Comments On Being Temporarily Paralysed Last Year

During a recent appearance on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast, SmackDown Live General Manager Paige talked about being temporarily paralysed last year after suffering a career-ending injury in the ring.

Below is what Paige said:

“I hurt my neck but I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone straight away because they were like, ‘We’ll just see, we need to see what we’re going to do creatively and we want to make sure that you’re okay, you get some rest’. They just wanted to take care of me and they wanted to keep it quiet which was on my request too. I just didn’t want it to be out there.

So I took the kick, it wasn’t Sasha’s fault. My neck just wasn’t as strong as it was before. So I end up getting complete paralysis over my body, right? Temporary paralysis. I’m laying in the ring and I feel it, I knew it. I was like, ‘This is it, I can’t wrestle anymore.’ I felt it. I already knew.

The trainers were there and Jamie Noble was there and I looked over at Jamie and was just like, ‘This is it. I’m done’.”
