- Paige is expected to make her return to WWE TV soon, according to PWInsider. Paige had been managing Asuka and Kairi Sane on SmackDown until she left to take time off to undergo surgery for a hernia back on August 14. Before that she h ad revealed that she missed her SummerSlam Meet & Greet and the post-SummerSlam RAW after visiting her doctor, where they discovered the hernia. The hernia was related to the career-ending neck injury that she suffered in December 2017 at the WWE live event in Uniondale, NY.
There's no word yet on what WWE has planned for Paige, and if she will continue to manage The Kabuki Warriors. She is expected to be in attendance for the SmackDown FOX premiere in Los Angeles next Friday night, which will also be the SmackDown 20th Anniversary premiere. As we've noted, Paige recently tried out for the WWE Backstage studio show on FS1, but there's no word yet on if she will be used as one of the on-air talents along with hosts Renee Young and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.
