That’s a different one. With WrestleMania 36 right around the corner, it is time to bring in some people to help build the show up. This includes a variety of part time wrestlers as well as some guest start who you might not have seen in a long time. Occasionally it is a legend, even if they might not be that old. That is the case with someone appearing on this week’s SmackDown.
The Women’s Revolution officially started back in the summer of 2015 but there were several other moments that could be considered the real starting point of the whole thing. As far as the WWE umbrella goes, the real kickoff might have taken place when the NXT Women’s Title became a big deal. That involved a certain young British wrestler and she is going to be involved in this year’s WrestleMania build.
WWE has announced that Paige will be appearing on this week’s SmackDown to confront SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley. Over the last few weeks, Bayley has been talking about how no one either from the past, present or future is worthy of challenging her at WrestleMania. Paige will be appearing to talk to Bayley about the situation. It is unlikely that Paige will be wrestling, as she was forced to retire in the spring of 2018 due to a neck injury. She has since been the SmackDown General Manager and moved to WWE Backstage as an analyst.
Paige had a short but awesome career. Check out some of her moments:
Opinion: Paige is a weird case as she is nearly a legend and is only 27 years old. Her in-ring career is over but she did so much during her time in the ring that she could be around WWE for a long time to come. It could be interesting to see what she does on SmackDown, but you never know what might wind up happening. If nothing else, it could be interesting to see what it sets up for WrestleMania.
