Rumor: WWE Currently Has No Plans for Paige
Paige is not figured into any future plans as of now, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. She had been expected to be ready to return from neck surgery some time this summer, but as of now, WWE has no plans to bring her back “unless things change,” according to Dave Meltzer.
The reason is reportedly “everything that’s happened,” with the most recent thing being her “inexplicably” tweeting out a video that was just Alberto El Patron calling Triple H a pussy for two minutes. There’s also a feeling that she doesn’t want to come back anyway, since it would require her to be away from Alberto El Patron a lot because of the difficult WWE travel schedule.
The Rock’s movie about Paige, “Fighting With My Family,” could be the thing that saves her, however, according to Meltzer. The movie doesn’t currently have a release date other than some time in 2018. Paige’s WWE contract expires in 2019.
