Bengaluru, Oct 14: As per earlier reports, Paige is suffering from a legitimate neck injury which is career-threatening. She will have to undergo a surgery to heal up completely.
This neck issue is similar to Nikki Bella, Daniel Bryan or Edge for which the later two had to surrender their career. Going by the latest reports, even if Paige does agree to make her comeback to the squared circle, she can’t make it within a year.
Paige is being treated by Dr. Uribe, the same doctor who has treated Nikki Bella and gave her wrestling life back to her. WWE appointed the same facility for Paige too and as she told on Twitter, she’s been given with two choices i.e. “two great surgery options.”
Been quiet for a while. Time to get the neck fixed so I can come back and kick some ass. 😊🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/aPxiprMLjF— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) September 29, 2016
As reported by AllWrestlingNews.com, the first option is to fix the neck issue with a quick surgery which means she will not heal up totally but will be back in time, even before Wrestlemania 33. This one is depending on WWE’s force completely. If they want her back earlier than expected then she might have to go with the first option.
The second one is to have a fusion surgery to heal the issue from its root. In this case, quite obviously she will have to be off from in-ring competition for an indefinite span. Depending on Paige’s health, the healing process can take six months to one year which means she may not show up in 2017, as well.
Fixing the issue properly will be the best option for Paige considering her early age. She is only 24 and plenty to give to the pro-wrestling circuit. Neck concussion is the most severe concussion that one can get and hence this should be dealt properly. Although, everything is depending on how her status continue with WWE after her suspension gets over.
If she decides to find a loophole in her contract to get out from here, WWE will not be paying her surgery expenses. Her contract is still intact till 2019 which means she cannot go out anywhere around the world and have an in-ring career.
