Paige surprised a lot of fans when she announced that WWE would not be renewing her contract. As of July 7, she will become a free agent. Paige has already added a booking contact email to her Twitter profile and anticipates being back in the ring in the future.
With no non-compete clause to worry about, Paige will be able to work anywhere the day her WWE contract expires. Given her brand name and talent, promoters around the world will be interested. It didn’t take long for a scammer to try to take advantage of the situation.
Within days of Paige announcing her WWE departure, Ringside News received an email from someone posing as a concerned fan. They asked us to share an email address that does not match the official contact info Paige is using for booking inquiries.
Promoters who are keen to have Paige on their shows should take notice. At least one person is acting in bad faith to try and scam them out of money. The official booking account for Paige is listed on her Twitter account.
Paige was one of the top stars when WWE started to take women’s wrestling more seriously. Her injury sadly kept her out of the ring through what would have been an incredible run. She has since said that she feels great and believes she will wrestle again.
If promoters are interested in booking Paige, they should be careful only to communicate with official accounts. Scammers often target pro wrestlers, promoters, and fans with online schemes. Hopefully, nobody gets burned by this latest con artist.
