According to a report from PWInsider, WWE star Paige has retired from the ring.

The star was forced to cancel a number of live events in December following a suspected shoulder injury, after being taken out by a kick to the back from Sasha Banks during a tag-team match on the WWE Holiday Tour.

According to fans who attended the event at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, Paige wasn't facing Sasha and appeared to not realise that she was about to be kicked.



After the kick, Paige fell to the ground clutching her right arm and medics ran to her aid. The match was cancelled soon after and a stretcher was brought to the side of the ring, with Paige needing help to get out the ring.

She's been out of action ever since.

It's already been a tough couple of years for Paige - real name Saraya-Jade Bevis - having faced not one but two WWE Wellness Policy suspensions.

However, as well as being banished to the sidelines for months on end, she also had sexually explicit clips of herself leaked on the internet - an ordeal that left her feeling 'broken' and 'collapsing with exhaustion'. Things got so bad that she even contemplated suicide.

In an episode of former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia's podcast, Paige said: "That scarred me, just people invading my privacy, to the point where sometimes I don't want to go out. People are just looking at me bad.

"I was out yesterday with my friend. We were just sitting there having a Bloody Mary. This guy comes up to my friend and says 'that's the porn star'."

Bursting into tears, Paige then continued to give a heartbreaking account about her darkest thoughts during the leak.

She said: "When they came out I barricaded myself in the house for a couple of months. I was so sad to the point I was contemplating suicide.

"I was on the floor, I was so low. I got so skinny and ended up collapsing with exhaustion in hospital in England. They told me at the time it was like stress-induced anorexia.

"I wasn't eating, I wasn't sleeping, I lost all my hair. I have clippings right now but I literally have no hair because my hair fell out, because I was so stressed.

"It just broke my heart. I was like 'why would someone want to do that to someone?'."

The former WWE Divas champ also said she was 'young and dumb' but didn't want to be known for the mistakes she'd made.
