On Tuesday, ”The Mexican Aristocrat” Alberto Del Rio (aka Alberto El Patron in the independent circuit) appeared on the Busted Open satellite radio show with Dave LaGreca and Larry Dallas and offered an update on her current girlfriend Paige returning to in-ring action.
Here’s what Alberto said:
“I’m 100% sure that she [Paige] will be the most successful female wrestler of all time. She just needs to get well and she’ll be back in the ring around April or May, I don’t know when the doctors’ have their final decision.”
In October 2016, Paige underwent a surgery after sustaining some nerve damage in her back & shoulder region. She was drafted to the flagship show Monday Night RAW in the brand extension draft, but she has not competed on WWE TV since June.
It has been close to five months since Paige’s surgery. However, she is not in-ring shape yet, you know, she’s still unfit to take bumps in the ring. According to Dave Meltzer, she is still a long way from making a return to the ring.
Initial reports had suggested that she will be back in time for WrestleMania 33 in Orlando in April, she is more likely to return around the summer of 2017.
Recently, Paige tweeted that she has started physio-therapy and is looking to make a comeback to the squared circle as soon as possible.
