Paige’s WWE Return: Dave Meltzer doesn’t see her returning anytime soon

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Paige is not expected to return to the ring anytime soon. He also added that the WWE women’s superstar is still under contract but is still recovering from her surgery.

Paige had sustained some nerve damage in her back and shoulder and had to undergo surgery in September last year. She has not competed in a WWE ring since June 2016. However, she was drafted to RAW in the brand split draft the following month. The 24-year-old is also on her last strike regarding the Wellness policy following her 2 suspensions for violations in August and October.

In September, Paige underwent a neck surgery and it has been almost five months since she went under the knife. However, she is still a long way from making a comeback as she is not quite ready to take bumps in the ring.

A report in PWInsider had stated that Paige would not be able to make a return to ring in time for WrestleMania 33, which is in two months’ time from now. It is more likely that her realistic timetable would be around the summer of 2017.

Paige tweeted last week that she has started physiotherapy. Now, when a wrestling fan enquired about an update on Paige’s injury on Twitter, Meltzer replied that she is still a long way from making a return.

There is not much for Paige as of now when it comes to her return. She has to continue her rehab and follow the doctor’s orders. Nikki Bella, who had a similar neck injury, took 10 months to make a comeback. She began training in June and could only return in August.

Thus you can expect Paige to return around two months after she resumes training provided there are no further setbacks. For now, she just has to be patient.
