Reason Why WWE Star Paige Denied To Attend Smackdown At PC
Some issues have been noted regarding Paige appearing on SmackDown for the past couple of episodes. On the March 13th edition, she was supposed to be present on the show which was moved from Detroit to the WWE Performance Center. But it appeared to be a no-show day that was explained by the WWE as a travel issue.
On this past week’s edition of SmackDown, Michael Cole informed us that Paige will be present on the show to make the unfinished announcement that has something to do with the SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley.
It was then informed that the title will be defended in a Six-Pack Elimination Match at WrestleMania 36. But Paige’s fans were curious why her live returns were getting scrapped.
Previously, PWInsider.com noted that Paige was set to be flown in for SmackDown but then the WWE officials decided to pre-record her segment and inserted it into the show.
Now, Dave Meltzer reported during Wrestling Observer Radio that several WWE Superstars weren’t willing to come to Orlando. Paige is one of them who decided not to use the aerial route during the global circumstance created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Paige made the announcement by Skype because she didn’t come and I don’t know if she could have, well I guess she could have. She was not one of those willing to come. There have been other people not willing to come and WWE has been — both companies have been really good about it. It’s like ‘You’re not willing to come, fine, no problem.’ So they did the tape thing.”
As informed by Paige herself on social media, she is in home self-isolation at home. She resides in California which is a very uncertain place right now.
So it’s not something strange not willing to leave the house if not essential as advised by WHO during this Coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully, the situation will be under control, very soon as we wish to see Paige and other WWE superstars back on the road.
When WWE first announced that Paige will be attending SmackDown, rumors broke out regarding her in-ring return all over the wrestling media outlets hinting the youngest Divas Champion might get cleared to be in action. Bayley even mocked the fact that Paige can’t wrestle again during her promo segment.
We can only hope that happens someday considering that names like Edge and Daniel Bryan made their comebacks from a similar condition.
