Paige’s in-ring career with WWE is over, as first reported by PWInsider this afternoon and since confirmed independently by PWTorch. Sources tell PWTorch that, due to her latest neck injury, she was told she will not be cleared to wrestle again for WWE.
Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, is just 25 years old. She had neck surgery in October 2016.
At a house show a couple weeks ago, she was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and went down and didn’t get up. The match was stopped and she was helped from the ring.
The other similarity is both have spent almost all of their life wanting to be wrestlers, and finding something beyond that is going to be as tough for Paige as it's been for Bryan. It's going to be nice if Paige gets a big farewell tonight, but I hope WWE helps her out with what's next.
But on the flip side you need SOMETHING for the micard guys to aim for. Otherwise, what are the guys not at the top of the card even bothering for? There's no midcard title and therefore no mythical pay raise or elevation
