As per WWE’s contract, Paige has no prohibition while appearing on the independent wrestling circuit. But, she cannot compete in the ring or her appearance can’t be advertised by the promotion to attract people.
So, she has not done something out of her contract since it was not a set up by the indie show. She was there to support her boyfriend.
Also, she can’t compete in the ring due to her neck surgery. It will not allow her to wrestle for the rest of the year 2016, at least.
She is also under her second suspension by WWE which is extended to 60 days. It is going to be lifted on December 10th.
She has suffered the first suspension in the month of August due to illegal drugs. The second time too, she was handed the suspension for the same reason, apparently.
However, she could not show up in WWE when the suspension gets over due to the neck surgery. She is not expected to be back until next year’s Wrestlemania.
Until then we can expect to see more of her by the side of Del Rio in the Indie scenes.
