Paige was a special guest at Saturday night’s Jersey All Pro Wrestling event in Rahway, New Jersey.
Prior to Deonna Purrazzo vs. Sumie Sakai started, it was announced that they had a special guest at the show and out came Paige. She was not announced by name and did not walk out to entrance music. Paige watched from ringside and that was that.
Paige’s boyfriend, Alberto Del Rio, worked against Sami Callihan on the show.
Paige, who is currently suspended from WWE for 60 days following her second violation of the WWE Wellness Policy, underwent neck surgery last month. The surgery was performed by Dr. Juan S. Uribe in Tampa, FL, the same physician that did Nikki Bella’s neck surgery.
The surgery has been a point of contention between Paige and WWE as their medical staff had cleared her to compete and wanted her to return following her first Wellness Policy violation in August. However, Dr. Uribe recommended surgical options and in the meantime, Paige failed another Wellness test. WWE has not mentioned Paige’s surgery on dot com, which speaks volumes about her status with the company.
Paige won’t be eligible to return to WWE from suspension until mid-December but is expected to need six to eight months to recover from neck surgery. She remains under a lengthy WWE contract but will not be paid her downside guarantee until her suspension expires.
She recently resumed training.
