Earlier this week, reports have suggested that Paige will not be cleared to perform in the ring for WWE again after picking up another neck injury at a recent WWE live event. However, her most recent Instagram post shows she has optimism for the future during what must be a difficult time.
During a six-woman tag team match of Absolution members Paige, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville vs Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James.at a WWE house show at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island last month, The Leader of Absolution suffered a stinger after she was kicked in the back of her neck by The Boss.
Paige went down hard and attempted to get up, but quickly fell back down before the match was called off. She had only recently returned in November after missing most of 2017 after she had neck surgery in October 2016.
The Raven-Haired Renegade hasn't worked in the ring for WWE since and it was initially thought that she was not going to be cleared in time to compete in the women's Royal Rumble match.
However, her head injury is said to be worse than initially thought, as reports by PWInsider have stated WWE will not clear her to compete in the ring again, with many describing her situation as similar to what happened with Edge‘s retirement.
Yet, despite these recent reports, Paige has shown some optimism for the future in a recent Instagram post, as she has uploaded a photo of herself on Monday Night Raw in the corner of the ring on the second rope with the following caption:
"The comeback is always stronger than the setback ❤️ @wwe."
WWE is yet to confirm or deny the reports made by PWInsider, and while this Instagram post by The Leader of Absolution doesn't do that either, it shows optimism. Comeback doesn't exactly mean she's wrestling again, but at least she's trying to find a positive from the situation.
If the reports are true, this doesn't mean her WWE career is over, as she's fantastic when it comes to talking on the mic, so she could always move into a managerial role or another non-wrestling role. However, as we have seen with others in the past, this might be a difficult transition for Paige to make after wrestling for so many years.
