As reported on Monday, WWE Superstar Paige was backstage at RAW from San Antonio. Due to the career-threatening injury that she suffered at the hands of Sasha Banks last month, WWE has confirmed she will not be competing in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match.
In this RAW Fallout video, Paige briefly addressed her neck injury, but didn’t say much aside from the fact that she’ll be at the Rumble to support her Absolution partners Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. In the event that Paige is not not cleared to compete again in the near future, she could serve as a manager/mentor of sorts to Deville and Rose.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Paige’s future as an in-ring competitor, the original Anti-Diva maintains an optimistic outlook for what’s ahead in the year to come.
2018 WILL be my year. ??
