Neck injuries are nothing to take lightly and they have caused a premature end for several careers. Paige isn’t counting her in-ring career out just yet and it’s all thanks to Edge.
During her time on WWE The Bump, Paige discussed how much Edge inspires her. They went out of action with neck issues and were both forced to retire early. Since the Rated R Superstar returned it gives Paige hope that she will someday wrestle again as well.
“He’s just wonderful like I’m truly inspired by him. Like I was always a fan anyway — I was a massive Edgehead, for sure. The fact that he went through the same as me neck-wise and then went away for like nine years and then all of a sudden he made this miraculous recovery and a return to the ring, I was crying.”
Paige went on to joke about coming back after a near ten-year hiatus as well. She said that if she returns at 40 years old people will tell her to go away. Edge remains a source of hope that she will someday wrestle again.
“It give me hope that one day even in nine years, you know that I come in at nearly 40 and get back in the ring again. I’ll just come in like, ‘Hey guys, I’m back!’ and they’re like: ‘No! Turn around!’ But yeah, he inspires me that one day I can make a comeback.”
We’ll have to see if Paige ever does make a return to the ring. There were some heavy rumors that she might be getting close to coming out of retirement, but then COVID-19 shut down the planet.
Edge will battle Randy Orton at WWE Backlash in The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever. Paige is certainly Team Edge.
