Report: WWE would have released Paige if it weren’t for her biopic

Paige has been in the headlines over the past few months, and not necessarily for the right reasons, however her relationship with WWE has remained fairly private. There has been hints through Total Divas and videos released by Alberto El Patron criticizing WWE and Triple H however, that the relationship isn’t in a great place.

On Wrestling Observer Radio recently, Dave Meltzer added a bit more meat to the bones saying that while Paige is out with a neck injury, the reality is she wouldn’t be returning to WWE it weren’t for her upcoming biopic featuring her and her family — which incidentally is a movie being worked on by the Rock’s production company.

Paige recently participated in videos, alongside fiancee El Patron, running down WWE and Triple H, even if she did get him to try and stop. She still shared the videos in the end and consensus is that she is trying to engineer a way out of her WWE deal to join TNA Impact and work with El Patron, but the biopic was always going to be a blocker.

    In her case yes. They are, alot invested in her and family brand. Keep control till they have too. If she remains injured they can toll her contract like they did with Rey

    That’s the LOGICAL thing to do. I’m not going to pretend that anything the WWE is REMOTELY logical, are you?

    But they future endevour her, she goes to Impact. They release the film and create mass publicity for Impact.

    Keep her under contract. Release film, endevour at end of contract

    It makes no sense that they would only be keeping her because of the movie considering she is not even on tv due to the injury. And from memory the movie was started after her first wellness violation, not before. If the movie was such a big deal for her keeping the job, they would more than likely kept the violations hush hush instead of making a big deal about them.
    The success of the movie and the production of it would not be affected by whether she was with the company or not. I don’t see it being a big success either way.

    Was just thinking about this the other day (Paige’s status, not the movie, which I’d completely forgotten about). 99% sure we’ll never (and by “never”, I mean within the next 5 years or so) see Paige in a WWE ring again, and they’re just waiting for her to be medically cleared before they Future Endeavors her.
