Is #WWE Diva #Paige finished? With the 2018 Royal Rumble just weeks away, the WWE rumors surrounding the upcoming event are at a fever pitch. However, the news of Paige’s career coming to an early end is making waves through the industry tonight as well. Forbes is reporting that the WWE's doctors will not allow Paige to return to a physical role in the WWE following an injury she suffered back on December 28 during a match in Uniondale, New York.

End of the road?

At first, Paige’s injury wasn’t deemed to be too serious. After missing nearly a year-and-a-half of live action, Paige returned to the WWE in November, when she looked like her old self.

Her appearance on "RAW" alongside Deville and Rose for a tag team match seemed like a triumphant return to the ring, however, now it seems that appearance may be the last fans will have to see of this WWE Diva - at least from inside the ring.

Paige's absence from the ring was made more complicated as a result of two different suspensions for violating various WWE policies. Paige later revealed how a leak of her sex-tape left her feeling suicidal as she suffered from stress-induced baldness and anorexia.

So what is next for the 25-year-old rising star? Only time can tell. If Paige’s days in the ring are truly over, you have to believe that she will still be around the WWE in on way or another. Interestingly enough, Paige is still listed as one of the top favorites at the Royal Rumble which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, January 28 from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.

Paige is listed at 6/1 odds to win the Royal Rumble, with only Asuka (11/8) and Ronda Rousey (2/1) listed ahead of her. Could Paige end up in the Royal Rumble and possibly shock everyone by winning it? With the WWE, you just never know.

Othe favorites to win the Women's Royal Rumble include Becky Lynch at 6/1, Nia Jax at 8/1, Nikki Bella at 10/1, and a two-way tie between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair at 14/1. The longest odds on the women's side belongs to Torrie Wilson at 50/1.

On the men's side, Shinsuke Nakamura is the heavy favorite at 15/8. Right behind Nakamura are Roman Reigns at 2/1 followed by John Cena (9/2), Dolph Ziggler (6/1), Finn Balor (7/1), Randy Orton (10/1), and Baron Corin at 12/1.

It was just one year ago when John Cena became the new WWE champion when he defeated AJ Styles at the 2017 Royal Rumble. #Royal Rumble 2018
