WWE star Paige RETIRES in emotional Raw speech

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.

EMOTIONAL: Paige retired from wrestling in an emotional speech during WWE Raw

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.

Now she has revealed during WWE Raw tonight that she is retiring.

In an emotional message to fans, she said the sport will “always be her house”.

She added: “Unfortunately due to neck injuries, I can no longer perform in this ring as an in-ring competitor.”

She received a raucous reaction from the crowd.

Footage from the November event in which she was injured 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.

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.
