Paige Officially Announces Retirement on WWE Raw

Paige officially announced her retirement on tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw in what she said was the hardest thing she's ever had to do. Paige suffered a neck injury in December, and it was reported in January that WWE was unlikely to clear her to return to the ring.

"I want to thank Daniel Bryan. He came back from a career-ending injury and wrestled his first match back at WrestleMania," Paige said, saying that Bryan gives her hope. She also thanked Edge, who retired from a career-ending neck injury in 2011, and who spoke to her backstage tonight. Like Edge, Paige said, she would need to find something to do with her life outside WWE.

Paige said she chose New Orleans to retire because she won her first Diva's championship there four years ago on the Raw after WrestleMania XXX.

"This will always be my house," she finished as the crowd agreed.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
