WWE held a live event on Wednesday in Uniondale, NY at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Fans in attendance noted that Paige, who recently returned to WWE TV after undergoing neck surgery, may have suffered an injury.

She was in a six-woman tag match that needed to be called off. Although there is no word on the extent of her injuries, it should be noted that she was able to walk off on her own.

Any time she gets the slightest knock now, crowds are going to worry it's much worse than it actually is.
 
I wouldn't think she's been rushed back, but it's bad they need to stretcher her from the ring and stop a match so soon into her return.
 
It's going to make management less likely to give her another title run, as they will want to continue to protect her with her lackeys.

Paige has been indefinitely pulled from house shows as they try to protect her on the way to the Royal Rumble. She's considered a key component of the match from the Raw side.

Expect to see her cut promos supporting her lackeys in the coming weeks on Raw. Mandy Rose will be rushed into action ahead of how WWE planned to have her develop.

That said, she's okay.

I've been hearing back and forth between "Paige didn't know the move was coming and Sasha went off script" and "Paige knew and took it poorly." Heard more of the former than the latter and that will be interesting moving forward with Sasha. Reports seemed to sound like she was in hot water after that. 

Does anyone know anything more about it?

Accidents happen. It's just the nature of being in a high risk occupation.

I've seen rumours saying she's suffered a stinger so pulling her from house shows to recover and having her just be a mouth piece until she's cleared sounds right for the kind of injury.

Paige openly requested to work with Sasha because she believes her to be a safe worker. Not everybody in WWE agrees.

Seems Paige is done....

Quote 2016 into 2017 was one issue after another for WWE star Paige. 2017 into 2018 was supposed to be her major comeback to WWE, her redemption. Inside the ring, sadly, that will not be the case.


In a situation described as similar to WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland's medical disqualification from the ring, WWE star Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis, 25 years old) was informed this week that she will not be cleared to return to the ring after her most recent in-ring injury, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources.  It is believed Paige was given the news at the Raw taping this past Monday.   We have been told by multiple sources she is "done" as an in-ring wrestler.

During a six woman tag team bout on 12/28/17 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island, Paige had her back to Sasha Banks, who was behind her against the turnbuckles.  Banks used the ropes to pull herself up and kicked with both legs to Paige's back.  Paige, obviously not ready for the bump, went down face first.  She tried to get up but could not get her legs under her, finally did get up and turned to grab Banks,  immediately falling down again and rolling over to her back, where she stayed.  The referee checked on her and called for the bell.   She was examined by WWE medical personnel and a stretcher was brought to ringside to transport her back to the locker room.  After several minutes, Paige walked out under her own power.

It was believed at the time that Paige had suffered a stinger, leading to her losing feeling in her extremities.  Given her previous neck surgery, WWE pulled her from the ring and set up further testing that led to this week's decision.

Paige had been announced for the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match on 1/28 in Philadelphia after she was injured, but we are told that was before medical testing led to the determination that she was to be pulled from performing as an in-ring competitor.  She will be replaced in the match and all signs are that she will relegated to a non-physical role for the company going forward.   One would assume the company will devise a way to write her out of the Rumble match without any physicality, similar to how Daniel Bryan is not allowed to be involved in anything physical in his current role as Smackdown General Manager.

Paige's injury came, as most injuries do, at the worst possible time.

2016 into 2017 was an explosive year for Paige that saw her undergo neck surgery, be hit with a pair of WWE Wellness Policy suspensions, undergo the embarrassment of personal and explicit videos being leaked and of course, her public and tumultuous relationship with Alberto el Patron.  There were a number of incidents that played out in the public eye involving the couple, included a July 2017 scene at the Orlando International Airport that was so bad, local authorities got involved, later determining not only that Paige was the aggressor in the situation but that there was enough evidence to prosecute her for domestic violence battery.   In the end, the District Attorney's office opted not to move forward with the prosecution.

By the latter part of the year, however, Paige was cleared medically and was finally back in the ring, spending  time at the WWE Performance Center in order to prepare for a television return.  She was brought back with great fanfare during a great Raw segment last year, helping to introduce NXT talents Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville to the main roster as part of the Absolution faction.  The strategy behind putting the group together may have been to devise a way to limit Paige's ring time due to her previous neck issues, while also getting her back on TV in a prominent role.    Almost immediately, the trio was clicking,  feuding with Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James.  Paige was right back where she should have been.

Then, the injury happened.

The irony of the situation, a number of sources have pointed out, is that no one would think there was anything physically wrong by looking at Paige, making it even more unthinkable that she, at 25, is being removed from WWE competition.

A second generation star from Norwich, England who broke into the business at just 13 years of age, Paige's signing to WWE developmental was instrumental in leading to the current incarnation of the WWE women's division.  She was one of the first breakout stars of the WWE NXT brand as it evolved from just being a developmental territory.  NXT's Women's division, unlike the WWE main roster at the time, specifically focused on the athletic in-ring abilities of the female talents and built stories, title matches and rivalries no different than NXT's male counterparts. 

As more and more talents migrated from NXT to arrive on WWE's main roster, the women's division there also evolved, becoming far more performance-based as the division became a more popular and important piece of WWE's product, Paige was not only a major part of moving the division forward, she was the first sign of that the tides were changing.

Paige, the first NXT Women's champion, was moved to the main roster as a surprise the day after Wrestlemania 30 in New Orleans, shockingly defeating AJ Lee to become the WWE Divas champion.  In doing so, Paige became the first and only woman to hold the belts simultaneously.  With her Divas championship win, she was also the youngest woman to hold the belt at 21 years of age.    She would hold the Divas championship twice.

While Paige will not be allowed to wrestle going forward by the company, we are told that she is extremely well liked by management, so one would think she would remain with the company in some capacity.  She was featured on reality series Total Divas, so that's a possible vehicle for her, as are WWE Studios feature films.  It's also possible the company could tap her to Coach in the NXT system or attempt to transition her into another on camera role.

Of course, The Rock is producing WWE Studios' forthcoming film "Fighting With My Family", which will be released theatrically September 14th.  The company will obviously utilize Paige to promote the film, which based on a British documentary made about Paige's family, The Knights, who have been wrestling and promoting the World Association of Wrestling (WAW) promotion in Great Britain for years.  One of the lead characters, named Raya (short for Saraya, Paige's given name) is played by actress Florence Pugh and is the central character of the film as it follows a fictionalized version of Paige's path to World Wrestling Entertainment, right down to a major scene where they recreate the night she debuted on Raw and captured the Divas championship.

The importance of her connection to the film alone should allow Paige to continue to be showcased in some fashion until the film hits theaters.

Outside of WWE, Paige had been attempting to build a separate brand for herself under the name "Saraya" with the assistance of former WWE star Rosa Mendes and her husband.   Obviously, that will continue as well.

Well if she is indeed done that is a major bummer. Cry She has always been one of the better women performers of the past five years, and she caught my attention since NXT. 

I think with the issue of the injury it is not so much the fact that she has a repetitive injury itself but the area of body part of the injury. A neck and/or spinal cord is not an area to mess with and I get WWE's precaution to avoid any permanent serious worse situation. It seems Paige had the same type of thing that Sting suffered from in that regard. (Assuming this report is true) the WWE is treating the situation the same, covering both the wrestler's safety as well as their legal ass. 

As for the accident, it was just something that happened. I do not blame Sasha. She assumed Paige would be ready. 

Edit: here is a clip of the incident in question.

Well that sucks... I wonder what other line of business she could transition into?



Guess that'll work out even better for Ruby Riot though eh? WWE will have to think outside the box and come up with something new to do and she slots into that same role/gimmick very well.

Her condition can't have been helped either by starting wrestling as soon as she hit her teenage years.

It's bad enough for teenage guys still growing and developing and body changes and that. For a female (who need protecting more from physical activity) to be wrestling with all the things women have to go through, it won't have helped her body.

It reminds me of one of our former football players Paul Digby. Built like a brick shithouse, rushed into the first team at 17, barely played again due to constant injuries that numerous managers put down to growing pains and now plays 4th division for Mansfield Town. We have the youngest ever football league debutant a guy called Rubens Noble Lazarus who got played at 15 and that fucked him too injury prone and dropped down the leagues.
