The 25-year-old, part of the Knight family of wrestlers, confirmed she was stepping out of the ring at Monday Night Raw in New Orleans after months of speculation following a neck injury last year. Ember Moon is set to interrupt an Alexa Bliss promo and work a tag match alongside Nia Jax against Bliss and Mickie James.

The former WWE Divas Champion informed fans about her status with professional wrestling. He has not been seen on WWE TV since 2008. While Hardy went on to team up with Seth Rollins and Finn Balor to defeat the Miztourage, The Miz, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, Lashley went on to give a beatdown to Elias. I'm so proud of you for being so strong but I'm also so excited for so many incredible opportunities coming your way.

In 2014, she debuted on Raw in New Orleans the night after WrestleMania (in the same building where she retired last night) by beating AJ Lee for the Divas Title. It was a really tough time in her life, but she got through it.

Paige, 25, who is from Norwich, had already undergone surgery on her neck before she was kicked from behind by Sasha Banks at the end of a year ago, causing fresh damage.

On the January 15th episode of Raw, WWE ever so casually mentioned that Paige would be unable to compete in the first female Royal Rumble. Paige explained that she wanted to retire where she debuted.

It's been a week full of highs and lows for Charlotte, as she ended Asuka's streak at WrestleMania, but lost her Women's Championship a few days later. Paige was now working as the manager of newly-formed Divas tag-team - "Absolution". This week's Raw was the first time Paige addressed her health issues. She talked about all the support she's had and thanked Daniel Bryan for giving her hope. That scarred me, just people invading my privacy to a point where sometimes I don't even want to go out, because I'm like, 'People are just looking at me bad.' For example, I was out with my friends and we were just sitting there.
