Despite being the youngest female to hold a main roster championship in WWE, Paige's career in the States has been anything but plain sailing.
Winning the Divas Championship at the age of just 21, the Brit was destined for big things under Vince McMahon.
But it all came to a shuddering halt one night in late 2017.
For context, Paige underwent neck surgery in October of 2016, around the same time she had been given two suspensions in the space of a month for violating the wellness policy twice.
She returned to television in November of 2017 flanked by Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville from NXT, but only a month later was she back on the shelf, as she broke down during a live event match in Uniondale.

- Banks returns to Raw and makes immediate heel turn
It ended up being her final match in a wrestling ring, as at the age of just 25, Paige announced her retirement the night after WrestleMania 34.
She's been on-screen regularly since, firstly as the GM of SmackDown Live and now as the manager of Asuka and Kairi Sane, but it looks like she will be away for a little bit.
As she revealed on her Instagram account, Paige needs a second surgery on her neck, owing to a hernia picked up in her final match that didn't naturally heal.
The most worrying part of her post though states that the doctor told her she has the neck of a '60-year old', which is quite worrying since she has just over 33 years to reach that age.
It's the consequence of wrestling from such a young age and taking hellacious bumps, and the upcoming second surgery will hopefully fix her neck for the rest of her life.
Some fans will always want her to return to the ring, but it's just not possible as her neck is literally a ticking time-bomb.
Hopefully the operation is successful though and Paige is back managing the Kabuki Warriors on television soon enough!News Now - Sport News
