    This is some terrible news for Paige and her fans (which I am one of). I suspected that WWE might force her to retire after her most recent injury scare but I was hoping I was wrong. I'm guessing that WWE will continue down the path of having Paige as a manager for Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville but who knows what will happen with her once the Absolution angle runs its course.

    That must be heartbreaking for her, so young as well!

    For sure. And to work so hard and go through everything she went through in 2017 just for this to happen is tragic.

    Awful news. Can't imagine how devastated she must be.

    I'm reading that a lot of people are blaming Sasha Banks for Paige's in-ring career being over. I mentioned it on Twitter back when the incident originally happened and it's still true now; while I feel terribly for Paige, I also feel a little bad for Sasha. Even thought it wasn't her fault (as it could have been a move from anyone and the result would have been the same), I can't imagine the guilt she must be feeling and it has to be even worse that people are flooding her social media blaming her for what happened to Paige. The fact of the matter is that this is no one's fault. It's an unfortunate risk of the wrestling business and it's certainly not the first time that a wrestler has had to retire because of lingering neck issues.

    Here is the moment:


    Sasha did nothing wrong, if it didn't happen during that match it would have happened during a different match.

    That's a lot worse-looking than the video I saw of it originally. The video I saw also included Sasha's reaction once she realized what may have just happened which made me feel terribly for her as well as Paige.

    As you said, it could have happened during any match. The result would have been the same if someone had Irish-whipped Paige into the corner or it could have happened when Paige hit the Ram Paige. It's not Sasha's kick that did the damage necessarily, it was the impact on the neck that caused it. It just so happens that Paige's neck gave out during that specific spot. This is one of those situations where people feel that they need to blame someone in a blameless situation.
