Former WWE Divas champion Paige will finally return to WWE programming next week according to PWInsider.com.
Although there had been early plans for her to return on the Smackdown brand, WWE will instead have her return to the RAW roster, where she had been originally drafted during the 2016 brand split but never actually appeared post-Draft.
The belief among several we have spoken with is that Paige will somehow end up on the Raw Women’s team at the 11/19 Survivor Series in Houston, Texas, where she now resides. Bayley vs. Mickie James vs. Dana Brooke has been announced to fill the position of the fifth competitor of Team Raw this Monday for Raw in Atlanta. It’s possible Paige is added to make it a four way or WWE runs some other sort of angle to have Paige replace one of the members of the team.
Paige has not competed for WWE since the summer of 2016, when she was suspended for the first of two infractions under the WWE Wellness Policy. Since that time, she has undergone neck surgery. In recent weeks, she has been working out at the WWE Performance Center in preparation for her return to WWE storylines.
