Paige finally returned to Monday Night Raw in 2017, but recently it was reported that WWE officials won’t be clearing her to return to the ring following an injury she suffered during a match at a WWE live event.

The former Divas Champion spent a great deal of time recovering from her neck surgery in 2016, so this is a major setback considering everything she’s gone through.

Natalya is a WWE veteran, and she told Sporting News that Paige hasn’t said much about her status.

“I don’t know the particulars of exactly what happened with Paige. I know, obviously, she had surgery and then she came back, but I don’t know all the details of what exactly happened. I just know that she hasn’t spoken about it yet and WWE hasn’t released a statement so everything from this point, as we know it, is just waiting to see and time will tell. What we do in the ring is difficult. At any given moment, you can have ups and downs.”

It was confirmed last week that the former Divas Champion will not be competing in the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match, but Natalya praised her for being one of the most talented stars she’s ever wrestled.

“I would just wait to see what happens with Paige and wait for more from WWE to make an official announcement. What we do is physical and Paige is one of the most talented female superstars I’ve ever been in the ring with. So, I have nothing but respect for her and, obviously, my husband Tyson Kidd, who was extremely talented in the ring. I also know that we take everything one day at a time and I’m grateful for all the good time that we’ve had together in the ring. “
