Many times, the reason so many fans get upset with pessimists branding the WWE 'fake' is because some of the injuries are very real.
There's plenty of risks wrestling. It's scripted, but far from fake.
Paige is a perfect example of someone who has experienced this first-hand. The British-born star has had to retire from professional wrestling at the age of 25 amid neck problems.
Paige took over a year off from wrestling across 2016-2017 in order to have neck surgery and she made her return to form Absolution alongside Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in November of last year.
At a house show on December 27, 2017, Paige would re-injure her neck after a kick from Sasha Banks and was left without feeling in her arms or legs, forcing the referee to stop the match, much to the distress of everyone in attendance, performers included.
Although Paige continued to accompany her stablemates to the ring for the following months, she did not get involved in any attacks and officially retired on the Raw after WrestleMania in New Orleans.
Now, Paige is the general manager of SmackDown - ironically taking over from Daniel Bryan who has since come out of retirement to return to the ring - and during an appearance on Edge and Christian's E&C Pod of Awesomeness, she explained what Sasha Banks said to her while she was in pain. The quotes come via NoDQ.com.
"I remember being in the match too and experiencing that and like 'maybe it's just my arms right?' So I'm like 'no I'm going to keep going.' And I remember trying to grab Sasha's legs and my arms felt like there was just no bones in them you know. So I'm trying to grab her legs and then like 'wait let me try to stand up and then I'll be good to do the comeback' and Sasha is like 'noooo, absolutely not.'
"Then I tried to stand up and I just look drunk. Like I just start stumbling and falling back. But actually, I feel like the girls were more terrified than what I was at the time. Like I was petrified, but the girls were crying at ringside and stuff and then they see the stretcher coming out and I was like 'please, please,' and it's just like horrible. I don't know how you did it for so many years beforehand because it's terrifying."
A lot of fans blamed Banks for the injury on Twitter, but if it wasn't Banks, it would have been someone else. Paige clearly wasn't right and her neck was a timebomb waiting to go off.
The Legit Boss should, in fact, be commended for putting Paige's health first following the incident.News Now - Sport News
