WWE's Paige Pulled From Live Shows Following Injury
WWE star Paige has had to cancel a number of live events following a suspected shoulder injury.
The British wrestler was 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.
A stretcher was brought to the side of the ring, with Paige needed help to get out the ring.
According to pwinsider.com, she has now been pulled from the remaining events due to take place this weekend.
The Mirror reports, that backstage people are saying Paige was hit with a 'stinger' - an injury to the neck or head which causes a stinging sensation.
It's not been a great year for Paige, who had only recently returned to the ring after undergoing surgery on her neck.
Watching that video makes me cringe. So scary to see. I hope you all realize the risks wrestlers take to entertain you all. And that fight to try to keep going. That's passion.

The video made me cry and gave me goosebumps. People do not realize how much the wrestlers go through and how much they risk. I hope Paige is okay.

Honestly both of them showed so much emotion. Paige showed passion to keep going, Sasha seemed so saddened about what happened. I hope both of them will be mentally and physically fine really soon. They're both fighters, in their own way.
