The Anti-Diva first hinted that she was working towards a comeback during an interview in April. During the appearance Paige revealed that she would be getting her neck checked soon and would “return tomorrow” if she could get cleared.
Paige signed with WWE in 2011 after making her in-ring debut for her father’s promotion when she was only 13. After a stint in Florida Championship Wrestling, the young star was crowned the first ever NXT Women’s Champion in 2013.
After defending her title against the likes of Natalya and Emma, Paige debuted on the main roster the night after WrestleMania 30. In the process she defeated AJ Lee for the Divas Title. With the victory Paige broke numerous records, including being the first woman to hold the NXT and Divas Title’s simultaneously, the youngest Superstar to hold a WWE’s women’s championship, and the first woman to win WWE gold on debut.
Paige first underwent neck surgery in 2016, before returning to the ring in November the following year. Although the comeback turned out to be short-lived with the star wrestling her last match at a house show a month later.
