Paige may be even closer to making her long-awaited WWE return. According to PW Stream, Paige showed up backstage in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday afternoon ahead of Monday Night Raw:
PWInsider previously reported Paige would return.
The website reported that the former Divas champion is expected to be inserted into the women’s Survivor Series match as a member of Team RAW, which already includes Alicia Fox, Nia Jax, Asuka and Sasha Banks. A triple threat match between Bayley, Mickie James and Dana Brooke has already been announced for this week’s RAW with the winner earning the final spot on Team RAW.
However, Paige is still expected to be part to the Survivor Series team, whether that means she’ll be added to Monday’s match or replaces one of the other members of the team through a separate angle.
Paige hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since June 2016, prior to undergoing neck surgery in October.
She served two suspensions for violating WWE’s wellness policy within two months in early 2016, but clarified both incidents were due to medication with prescriptions and doctor’s notes. Paige was the first-ever NXT women’s champion and became the WWE Divas Champion twice during her time in WWE, which included winning the title on her main roster debut in 2014.
