Paige training for, reportedly close to her WWE comeback

It’s been nearly a year since former NXT Women’s and WWE Divas’ champion Paige wrestled a match. And with all that’s happened over that time - two Wellness Policy suspensions, neck surgery the company reportedly didn’t think she needed, a whirlwind romance with Alberto Del Rio/El Patron it was said at times neither her family or WWE wanted, the announcement of a Dwayne Johnson-produced movie of her journey to big-time pro wrestling, a vicious violation of her privacy and more instances of her now fiance Alberto bad-mouthing her bosses than anyone can count - there’s been plenty of skepticism of if she would ever work for the McMahons again.

According to the Anti-Diva Total Divas star herself, she’s working towards a comeback. And since by her own admission she’s under contract to WWE for a while longer still, you have to think her return would take place under their banner:

Following up on her initial Tweet, PWInsider says they contacted sources at WWE who confirmed she will be cleared for action if the results of her x-rays look good.

There’s no release date yet for Stephen Merchant’s Fighting With My Family, the comedy-drama film based on Paige’s life, but The Rock and WWE Films would probably like to have her around for promotion. Beyond that, it’s worth wondering if the past year is water under the bridge for both the company and her, and how any lingering bad blood will effect how she’s used on Raw (presuming she stays on the roster she was drafted to in 2016).
