Paige was informed earlier this week by WWE that she will not be cleared to return to action following her recently injury.

PWInsider reports Paige was given the news this past Monday and multiple sources are saying that she is “done” as an in-ring competitor. It was first believed that Paige only suffered a stinger in her match two weeks ago against Sasha Banks but further tests have indicated that her condition is worse than expected. The decision was made not to clear her once they got the results of the tests back. Paige’s situation is very similar to what happened with Edge back in 2011, when he was forced into retirement.

Moving forward the company may assign her an on-air personality role, where she doesn’t have to get physical but still have a position in the company. This has been done with talents such as Daniel Bryan, who is the SmackDown GM and Corey Graves, who is an announcer for RAW and SmackDown.
