Some WWE fans are abusing Sasha Banks after Paige has been forced to retire

The world of professional wrestling - or sports entertainment - is still reeling from the news that Paige is being forced to retire at just 25-years-old.

The British grappler suffered what has been reported to be a career-ending injury at a RAW live event at the Nassau Coliseum in late December.

Paige was teaming with Absolution members Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville against Sasha Banks, Bayley & Mickie James when she took a hard kick to her back after turning away from Banks in the corner.

Of course, Paige spent a whole year on the shelf after undergoing neck surgery in October 2016 and she only returned to WWE television in late November.

But after being cleared to return to the ring, one would think it would take more than what seemed a routine kick to stop her in her tracks.

It's worth noting at this point that neither Paige, the WWE or any medical professionals have confirmed that the Anti-Diva must retire, but the reports have come from several reputable sites.

Paige was supposedly told the news during last Monday's Raw broadcast and if the 25-year-old can't wrestle, it's not clear what she will do as of yet. Afterall, she is on a one-year rolling contract.

However, many fans are blaming Banks for what happened to Paige.

Fans have branded the Legit Boss an 'unsafe worker' in the squared circle and believe she didn't take appropriate care of Paige during that match.

It has to be said, Banks has done a move like that thousands of times and Paige obviously knew the spot was coming as she turned round to taunt the crowd.

It surely speaks to the fragile nature of Paige's neck than Banks being reckless and if Banks hadn't of hurt her, one could argue it would have been a matter of time before someone else did.

While Banks certainly laid the kick in, it didn't appear to be severely stiff or dangerous. It's a terrible shame that Paige has gotten injured the way she has and the video of the incident is a tough watch for anyone.

Let's hope Paige gets some good news soon!
