The former WWE Divas Champion Paige is one of the most talented wrestlers that the WWE Universe has seen. She was the first-ever NXT Women’s Champion at a time when WWE was just starting to take women’s wrestling more seriously. She was also a two-time WWE Divas Champion. She has been involved in a controversy with former WWE star Alberto Del Rio (Alberto El Patron), who received allegations of sexual assault.
However, it was reported earlier this month that the sexual assault charges against Alberto El Patron were dropped and the case against him was closed. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that he held a press conference in Mexico City on December 20 to discuss the investigation.

Del Rio said that the charges being dropped proved he was “totally innocent” of the claims from his ex-fiance. He also said that he had footage he could release that would get Paige fired from WWE if she ever spoke about him in public again. Finally, Del Rio also said he would be working for one of the three biggest US companies in 2022.
Paige has been involved mostly in non-wrestling roles since her career was shortened due to injury. She had announced her retirement from the in-ring competition in April of 2018. She went on to become the general manager of SmackDown. She also contributed to WWE Backstage in 2019. Paige hasn’t appeared in person on camera since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020 and fans had been wondering about her contract status.
She was recently outraged by a major WWE firing. It was previously reported that a WWE creative staff said there were no plans to bring her back to the show in March of this year. Paige still remains under WWE contract. Dave Meltzer talked about why she’s still with the company on the latest Wrestling Observer Live. Paige has also gained followers on her Twitch platform following his stint in WWE. She streams regularly on the platform. Paige has 215,000 followers on the site.
