It wasn't long ago when WWE published photos of many of its current Superstars as they appeared on their respective high school yearbooks. Following up on this, WWE recently posted the "2017 WWE Yearbook" on its website, this time showing each of the company's male and female Superstars as they appear in present day, albeit with their ring names in yearbook-style fonts, and special designations for Most Likely to Succeed, Most Talented, Most Popular, and whatnot. However, some fans have pointed out that there's somebody who isn't on the WWE "yearbook," but remains officially on the company's roster after a long period of inactivity. Who could it be?
If you guessed Summer Rae, then you would be wrong – she's on the same page as Sin Cara, who hasn't been on television for ages, though not as long as Summer has been away. Some of you might have taken a stab in the dark and guessed The Undertaker, but surprise, surprise – 'Taker shares a yearbook page with Tyler Breeze, despite how many fans assume he was retired by Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. Now take a look at the photos below and tell us if you've figured out who it is.
That's right – one would have expected to see Paige after Noam Dar and right before Primo Colon, but the Anti-Diva is nowhere on the WWE "yearbook." This was something a couple of fans pointed out in the comments section of this Cageside Seats article, with one of them quipping that WWE had published a yearbook "literally full of PAIGE-s." Touche indeed, but we can't blame you if you're thinking this is another sign that Paige's days in the WWE are numbered.
It's been more than a year since Paige was last seen on WWE television, and also more than a year since she and boyfriend Alberto Del Rio (aka El Patron) were both slapped with Wellness Policy suspensions. Since then, she and Alberto have been involved in all sorts of scandalous shenanigans, most recently an argument at the Orlando airport where both sides were accused of domestic violence. She was also involved in an incident earlier this year where private, NSFW photos and videos of her were leaked out to the public.
A few months ago, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter speculated that Paige's WWE-coproduced family biopic, Fighting with My Family, is the only reason why the company hasn't cut ties with her. The film has yet to get an official premiere date, but Pro Wrestling Sheet reported last week that a rough cut was recently screened at a Sherman Oaks, California theater. Now that the film's mostly done, Paige's omission from the WWE "yearbook" does indeed look like another sign she's got one foot out of the company's door. Of course, it could all be an honest mistake, but it's not like Paige's behavior has endeared her to WWE's higher-ups in recent months.
