WATCH: Paige 'retires from WWE' after suffering HORROR injury

WWE star Paige has reportedly retired from professional wrestling after suffering a horrifying injury, capping off a torrid few months.


The wrestler, who hails from Norwich, hit headlines earlier this year after explicit photos and a sex tape of her were leaked online.

She also split from fiance and former WWE heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio.

The 25-year-old finally made her return to the ring on Monday Night Raw in November, having previously been suspended for wellness violations.

But her comeback was cut short after she suffered what appeared to be a serious shoulder injury during a tag-team match on the WWE Holiday Tour on December 27.

Footage from the event at Nassau Coliseum in New York City, US, shows Paige being kicked in the back by Sasha Banks.

It seemed as though she wasn’t expecting the attack and instantly fell to the ground clutching her right arm.

OUCH: WWE star Paige suffered a painful-looking injury during a live event

She tried to continue fighting but the pain eventually became too much.

Medics ran to Paige’s aid and a stretcher was brought ringside, with the match cancelled.

Banks was also visibly shaken at the perceived injury.

Fans watching the moment were quick to express their concern online.

“The video made me cry and gave me goosebumps,” one commented. “People do not realise how much the wrestlers go through and how much they risk…I hope Paige is okay.”

Another added: “Watching Paige crawl around and try and continue is heart-breaking.”

She was immediately withdrawn from WWE's upcoming live events, but it is now feared she may have to leave the sport altogether.

According to PWInsider, further medical tests have determined it would be of the Brit’s best interest to never wrestle again.

Reports suggest her injuries are as bad as those suffered by WWE Hall of Famer Edge who had to immediately retire after a series of neck surgeries.

There is yet to be an official announcement from either Paige or the company.
