UPDATE: Paige has reportedly been told she will not be cleared to return to the ring. You can get more on her status here.

The past few years have been a long hard road for Paige, as she’s spent a lot of time sitting on the sidelines recovering from surgery due to a neck injury that stopped her career dead in its tracks.

The neck injury was an unfortunate setback for Paige, and now it appears that she’s dealing with another injury.

The former WWE Divas Champion recently suffered a stinger after taking a dropkick at a WWE live event a few weeks ago, and she’s been out of action ever since.

This is obviously an unfortunate time to be out of action, as the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match is set to take place in a few weeks, and that’s not something Paige wants to miss.

It appears that Paige hasn’t been cleared to return to the ring, and it was recently reported that she likely won’t be cleared in time for the Royal Rumble match.

Even though Paige is down and out right now, there’s little doubt that she plans to come back stronger than ever, and she recently let fans know that she’s anxious to make her comeback when she posted the following on Instagram:

“The comeback is always stronger than the setback ❤️ @wwe”

The comeback is always stronger than the setback ❤️ @wwe

Unfortunately there’s no telling when Paige might be making her comeback at this point, but stay tuned for more updates on her return as they become available.
