WWE's Paige Reveals It Would Be 'Impossible' For Her To Get Back In The Ring
| Last updated
Former-WWE star Paige has said it's 'impossible' for her to ever get back in the ring, following a number of injuries.
Speaking to ewrestling.com Paige said: "I will fight every day to get back in to the ring, but, mine and (Daniel) Bryan's injuries are a little bit different.
"So, his is all stuff to do with his brain. Like his concussions and stuff, while mine is spinal. Like, I have a spinal stenosis just like Edge does.
"And it's impossible for me to get back in the ring again unless it's like, maybe, 20 years' time."
The 26-year-old announced her retirement in April this year during Monday Night Raw at the New Orleans' Smoothie King Centre.
Sounding emotional, she told the packed-out crowd: "I would like to thank every single female superstar back there today.
"Be proud to be a part of this division. We have all built this division to be something huge."
She went on to say it will 'always be her house'.
She later told fans: "Unfortunately due to neck injuries I can no longer perform as an in-ring competitor. This is one of the hardest things I'll ever have to say in my entire career."
British-born Paige was forced to retire following a series of injuries. She was carried out of the ring on a stretcher during last year's WWE Holiday Tour after being kicked in the back.
It was just weeks after she had returned to the ring following surgery on her neck.
Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, has remained within the wrestling-world, however, and is currently the general manager on SmackDown Live.
Speaking about her new role, she added: "I will do anything. Right now, I'm really happy being Smackdown General Manager. It's opened so many different doors and I get to do so many different characters just being Smackdown General Manager - I get to be a good guy, bad guy, I get to do whatever I want.
"I would love to be a manager - kinda like Paul Heyman, one day. I would love to do anything like that.
"I wanted to manage Ronda [Rousey] at one point, but she doesn't need me!"
A movie about Paige's life, Fighting With My Family, is due to hit cinemas in February next year.
