WWE debuted a dominant faction on WWE Raw following the previous edition of Survivor Series. In a major surprise, Paige returned to in-ring competition after a hiatus of more than one-and-a-half-year.
Two of the names from the NXT roster were sent alongside her in the form of Mandy Rose and Sony Deville. They named this group as The Absolution to own the women’s division.
The momentum that had kept us believing that they may very well become the female version of the Shield, as well. But, as sudden injury of Paige ruined all of those plans.
Well, it was later discovered that she has been suffering from scoliosis in her neck. Later, she was forced to announce her retirement after this year’s Wrestlemania.
In Paige’s absence, the Absolution lost all of their relevance on the roster on WWE Raw. Later, Paige was declared as the general manager of Smackdown Live to the delight of the crowd.
Also, quite expectedly, Mandy and Sonya were taken to the same brand under the wings of their mentor. We expected that the group will be reformed to take over the Smackdown division, as well.
However, as per the recent updates, it exists, no more.
Following the superstar shakeup, Rose and Deville met Paige on Smackdown Live, for the very first time, this week. They were pretty much sure that they will be handed out opportunities. So, they did not back down while demanding for a title opportunity.

We get it @RealPaigeWWE you might be a little drunk with power right now… but we forgive you!

But, Paige has turned into a babyface after her retirement and hence, she denied to give any of them, a championship opportunity.
Rather, Paige booked Mandy Rose against Becky Lynch on next week’s episode of Smackdown Live. This is going to be the first time that Rose will compete on the blue brand after the trade-off.

Furthermore, Paige clarified that the Absolution is done. Hence, these two should stop using her theme song, as well.
Mandy and Sonya tried to butter the GM up on the social media, later. But, the former Divas Champion seemed unmoved, from her decision.
So, from now on, Mandy and Sonya have to go forward without their mentor.
