Former WWE Divas Champion Paige has been retired from in-ring competition for several years now. She had to step away from the ring permanently after sustaining a neck injury caused by a botched kick from Sasha Banks at a house show.
Although Paige is hoping to get medically cleared to wrestle again, she revealed during a recent interview with Mark Andrews on My Love Letter to Wrestling that if she does gets cleared to compete, she will be terrified to step back into the ring.
“And even if I was able to come back, it’s always that mental block now because I thought I was good to come back the first time I had neck surgery and I was like confident, I was still doing the same things I did prior even though I probably shouldn’t have been doing that, you know, like wrestling move-wise and then to come back again, I would be completely terrified. Like in my head, I’m terrified to come back. Even if my heart is saying, ‘Yes! I would love to.’ It’s like getting over that mental block of ever being able to step back in the ring again.“
Paige is still very young and she still has a lot left to accomplish in the ring. Her career ended way too early, so it would be best if she ended things on her own term. The WWE Universe would be excited to have her in the squared circle once again.
