As noted, Paige is scheduled for neck surgery next Wednesday. She mentioned in a TMZ Sports interview this week that she will need 6-7 months to recover but PWInsider reported that she's expected out 6-9 months, putting her back in the spring of 2017.
It will be interesting to see if WWE is paying for the surgery as their doctors reportedly did not believe she needed the surgery.
It was noted by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio that Paige's doctors said she did need the surgery and that was a big issue between the two sides. Meltzer added that WWE might not pay for the surgery if they don't think she needs it.
