Paige was injured during a live show in Uniondale, New York, and had to be helped out by WWE officials. This became worrisome immediately, considering Paige missed over a year after needing neck surgery in Oct. 2016.
A fan in attendance shared a photo of Paige lying down in the ring, being attended to by officials. According to fans attending the show, Paige got injured after being kicked by Sasha Banks. The match was called off.

Though WWE hasn’t given any further updates yet, Hall of Famer and former Raw general manager Mick Foley was able to share some positive news:
I am so happy to be hearing that @RealPaigeWWE is doing much better after a scary moment at the Nassau Coliseum show.

Foley did not give out any more information, and further details await at this time.
With Paige spending a lengthy amount of time recovering from neck surgery, it would be devastating if she suffered another injury in that area. The two-time Diva’s Champion returned to WWE last month, forming the Absolution faction with Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.
The past 18 months have been rough for Paige already. She was suspended twice by WWE in 2016 for violating the company’s wellness policy, then underwent neck surgery which kept her out of action until last month. Paige also ran into legal trouble with former fiancee, Alberto Del Rio, at the Orlando International Airport. Police recommended charges against her, though none were filed.
Del Rio and Paige called off their engagement shortly before her return to the ring. The former now works for Impact Wrestling, and Del Rio admitted that it was hard for them to make the long distance relationship work.
With Paige in the middle of a strong run after taking over a year off, we can only hope the injury is nothing serious. We’ll be sure to provide further updates when they come.
