During the Monday Night Raw recordings, Paige made her appearance and watched Sonya Deville and Sasha Banks from ringside with her partner Mandy Rose. Before the fight was held, WWE announced that Paige will not be able to compete in the Royal Women’s Battle of Royal Rumble 2018 “due to a neck injury”.
A few hours ago, it was rumored that Paige was going to appear on the show to announce her retirement as a professional fighter, but the plans changed and WWE has decided that Paige will continue with a role for now, but will not announce her retirement. After the announcement, WWE published a statement on its website confirming the news. However, WWE urged to give more information in the next few hours, so it is likely that an official statement will be made at some point.
Several sources have confirmed in recent days that Paige’s injury, produced a few weeks ago in a house show as a result of a kick by Sasha Banks, has ended his career. The fighter noticed a puncture, was fading for a moment and had to be taken care of by the medical team of WWE. Paige suffered a great lack of sensitivity in her limbs in the following hours and that helped to determine the problem. It is also said that WWE will keep her on the payroll with another type of position.
