The news came just 24 hours after it was announced that the Absolution leader had suffered a neck injury while wrestling Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James in Uniondale, New York. She will soon undergo x-rays and a full evaluation to determine the injury's severity, with WWE taking her off the road as a precautionary measure, though it has been suggested that she may not miss much TV time.
Paige suffered the injury after taking a stiff kick from Banks. The bout was halted, and the former Divas Champion was checked by medics, but she ended up leaving without the aid of a stretcher (though she was assisted by a trainer). Paige was also seen at the hotel bar after the show, with Meltzer stating "she was okay" on Wrestling Observer Radio earlier in the week.
A fan video of the incident leading to the injury has also surfaced:-
We'll likely hear more on Paige's situation once her test results come to light, but with Absolution surging, here's hoping she's set for a swift recovery.
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
