Paige’s first post-WWE booking teases her return to the ring
Paige recently informed the world of her impending exit from WWE, a decision she says was not her decision.
The departure of the first-ever NXT Women’s Champion, and heralding the evolution of female divas/revolution on the main roster, would normally have been a much larger story. This month, he barely had time to wave between huge news like Jeff Hardy’s latest DUI and the WWE Board’s investigation into Vince McMahon’s alleged misconduct.
But one of the things it looks like it could lead to would be bigger news. It’s a comeback to the ring, something that Paige — who now goes by her real first name Saraya — said she was working on. It’s also something his first post-WWE booking teases.
Saraya will return to her family’s UK independent promotion, the World Association of Wrestling (WAW), in October in Norfolk, England. And she’s apparently “returning” to the ring, but that could be in a role other than “wrestler” (the end of her WWE run included stints as kayfabe talent manager and general manager of the Mark) …
The 29-year-old hasn’t struggled since 2017, when on her return from neck surgery a home game had to be stopped when she lost feeling in her extremities after being kicked by Sasha Banks.
Rumors and speculation about her work at the Royal Rumble in recent years indicate that many fans want to see Saraya back in the ring. We’ll see if that’s in the cards with WAW, or another booking after his WWE expires on July 7.
