Saraya Knight has taken to social media to shoot down the recent rumors and reports claiming her daughter, Paige will be in the Royal Rumble this year.
The rumblings had started to take on a life of their own on social media earlier this week, with different people claiming that Paige was going to be a surprise competitor within the Rumble.
However, her mother, Saraya, has gone on Twitter and stated that it is not happening, adding that she will never wrestle again due to the risk of paralysis.
Sorry lovely, dirt sheets wrong AGAIN! She will NEVER return to the ring EVER. She will end up paralysed. https://t.co/9dj4mtFaQH

Paige retired from wrestling in 2018 due to a severe neck injury, which was very similar to what Edge had to retire from. Interestingly, he is also a name that has been rumored for this year’s Royal Rumble event.
The former Divas Champion did post a tweet claiming that her glory days are far from over, which is what got a lot of peoples hopes up about a return. But due to the severity of her injury, it seems very unlikely that it would happen.
I get told that my glory days are over w/ my career & that I’m a “slut” coz of the crap that got released about me. Just know again. Ppl make mistakes when they’re young. I’m not that person. Also my glory days are far from over.

Obviously, in the world of professional wrestling, you can never say never, and if she was going to return, WWE would want that as a huge surprise. However, it is something that fans shouldn’t be building their hopes up for.
