Paige confirms she has a concussion, says she's hoping to be back soon

The WWE injury bug struck again.

Paige disappeared from WWE television not long ago and while there were rumors that she was dealing with an injury of some sort, nothing was confirmed either way. That was until today when she told Channel Guide Mag she's dealing with a concussion:

"I took a bad bump in one of my matches. WWE has been absolutely great with the Wellness Program and wanting to make sure I'm back on my feet and completely healthy before getting back in the ring again. I'm losing my mind because I'm not at work right now, so it's been a few straight weeks of not leaving the house. I do go to the Performance Center and get back in the ring there and see the doctors to make sure I'm a good kid and taking as much ImPACT tests as I possibly can. I hope to get back in the ring soon. It's just a slight concussion. No big deal. Not a crazy one, but WWE is obviously very protective of their talent. I'm like 'I'm fine. I promise.' They're like 'No, we have to make sure you are 100 percent.' They are like parents."

WWE is dealing with multiple concussion lawsuits at the moment, so the company is playing it as safe as possible with any head injuries. Really, that should be the case either which way.

Paige joins a long list of WWE stars dealing with injuries, including Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, John Cena, Nikki Bella, Cesaro, Tyson Kidd, and Daniel Bryan, to name too many.
