Paige Officially Announces Retirement on WWE Raw

Posted by April 9, 2018 Comment

Paige officially announced her retirement on tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw in what she said was the hardest thing she’s ever had to do. Paige suffered a neck injury in December, and it was reported in January that WWE was unlikely to clear her to return to the ring.

“I want to thank Daniel Bryan. He came back from a career-ending injury and wrestled his first match back at WrestleMania,” Paige said, saying that Bryan gives her hope. She also thanked Edge, who retired from a career-ending neck injury in 2011, and who spoke to her backstage tonight. Like Edge, Paige said, she would need to find something to do with her life outside WWE.

Paige said she chose New Orleans to retire because she won her first Diva’s championship there four years ago on the Raw after WrestleMania XXX.

“This will always be my house,” she finished as the crowd agreed.
