Paige announces departure from WWE effective July 7

Former WWE Divas champion Paige has announced on Twitter that she will be departing WWE effective July 7.

In a post on Twitter, Paige thanked WWE for the opportunities that the company provided for her and said she’ll always be thankful for giving an “18-year old British pale emo girl that didn’t look like your average diva” a chance of a lifetime.

“I know after my neck injury taking me out of in ring status, it was pretty hard to keep me around for as long as you did and for that I’m thankful too,” she wrote.

She also said that the toughest part is having to let the Paige name go but gave kudos to her mom for naming her Saraya, saying that’s a “helluva name” as well.

“FYI I’m not saying I’ll never be in the ring. That day will most certainly come again! Wherever the return maybe,” she concluded.

Paige signed with WWE in 2011 and was part of NXT until 2014. She made her main roster debut on the Raw after Mania in 2014, beating AJ Lee for the Divas title on her first night. Unfortunately, a neck injury cut her wrestling career short and she retired in 2018. She then spent several months on Smackdown where she played the role of General Manager and then moved as a contributor to WWE Backstage on FS1.

She is a former NXT Women’s champion and a two-time Divas champion.
