AEW has reportedly contacted former WWE Divas champion Paige.
A new report from Fightful Select notes that AEW officials had at least some conversations with Paige over the summer. There’s no word yet on what the talks entailed, but a source noted that the new WWE regime would also be interested in bringing Paige back in some capacity.
Paige has not wrestled since she left WWE in July when her contract expired, but she has booked a number of appearances. Paige has stated that she is not against wrestling in the future, but it has to be the right situation. She has been out of the ring since she was forced into retirement in 2018 after suffering a neck injury in December 2017.
It was noted that Paige’s absence after her WWE departure is not due to a lack of interest. It is not yet known if she is considering a return to WWE, or perhaps a run with AEW. It also remains to be seen whether WWE doctors would release her for in-ring action.
Paige spoke to Renee Paquette in August and provided an update on her health and future in the ring. Click here for those comments.
