Paige made a little cameo on the WWE Network Special, titled “TrailBlayzer: The Alundra Blayze Story”. It’s a great watch, so you should definitely go and have a look. You can check out screen captures of Paige from the episode using the link provided.
We have not seen Paige compete in WWE in more than a year, but a cryptic Instagram post has us wondering what’s next for the raven-haired Superstar.
Paige is on a journey to reclaim her “house.”
The former Divas Champion — unseen in a WWE ring for more than a year — revealed she has returned to the WWE Performance Center, presumably beginning her return to active competition in WWE.
“Went to see an old friend today,” she wrote. “Good to be back there! @wwe #RoadBackToMyHouse”
Paige is a two-time Divas Champion and became the youngest Superstar to hold the title when she captured it during her Raw debut at the age of 21. If her return his imminent, as this post is leading many in the WWE Universe to believe, consider the women of Raw and SmackDown LIVE officially put on notice.
Charlotte and Becky Lynch make their way to the ring as Becky gets Charlotte a mic. Charlotte talks about Night of Champions being a dream scenario for her to finally become Divas Champion, and she and Becky thank the WWE Universe for believing in the Divas Revolution. She’s interrupted by Paige’s music, as the former PCB teammate makes her way out with a mic. She’s not a team player, and not used to apologizing for her actions, but she realizes she didn’t need to dump on her friends on Monday. Paige claims she started the Divas Revolution, and deserves some recognition. The three of them start arguing until Natalya’s music hits, bringing the lone member of the Hart Dynasty out to the ring.
Paige says this has nothing to do with a “crazy cat lady.” Natalya says she couldn’t be prouder of the Divas division, and that the last time she was excited for the Divas was when Paige won the Divas title. She was one of the first to congratulate her, because she deserved it. She says Paige is better than all this bickering, and Paige agrees. In fact, she is better than Natalya, who is “desperately clinging on to the youthful Divas to feel relevant again.” She slaps Natalya and leaves the ring as her music plays.

WWE Divas Champion Paige is on her way out to the ring. She says that some people out there thinks she doesn’t deserve to be champion and that she should go back to NXT. She says that in the past three months, she has proven that she deserves to be here and that she is here to stay. AJ Lee’s music sounds in the arena as she skips down to the ring. AJ says that she wanted to come out and tell Paige that she was right. Paige proved her wrong and that she was the only woman in a year to do that. AJ says that she let success get to her head and that she thought she was untouchable. She goes on to say that Paige gave her a slap of reality, and gives thanks and congratulates Paige. Paige says that she isn’t stupid, and can see AJ is doing the same thing she did the night after WrestleMania. Paige says no one here wants to see her defend her championship tonight. AJ asks the fans to decide if they want to see the match, to a resounding yes chant. Paige then ultimately agrees.
