Paige announced her exit from WWE just two weeks ago, and Booker T talked about what’s next for the former “Backstage” broadcast partner on his latest episode of the “Hollywood Stock Report.” Booker T believes in the potential of Paige to continue her career in a bigger market.
“I’m sure she’s going to be highly [sought after] because Paige is one of kind,” Booker said. “I’m gonna say this, Paige is going to be back inside the squared circle very, very soon. Let’s just say that.”
“I don’t have any inside information,” he clarified. “I just know how much she loves the business. I know how much her family loves the business and how well connected they are to the love of this game and Paige went out, not on her own terms. Paige is somebody that is definitely going to step back in that squared circle and prove that she is still one of the best female superstars that ever got in the ring and trust me on that. I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but I just got a feeling in my bones, I got a feeling in my bones that it’s going to happen real, real soon, okay? That’s all I’m saying.”
A career-ending neck injury took place during a tag team match at a WWE house show. Paige would retire from in-ring competition shortly after. Booker T sees the similarity between his situation and that of Paige’s.
