Paige was forced to withdraw from wrestling due to a serious neck problem. On the post-Wrestlemania episode of Raw on 9 April 2018, she officially retired from in-ring competition due to injury. In an interview with Uproxx, Paige discussed her acting in Fighting With My Family: “No, actually.
My whole family got cameos, but I didn’t necessarily think I should be a part of it. I mean, I was happy just at the fact that they made a movie about me in general. But I was very hands on with the script and stuff like that, and my story.
Like Stephen [Merchant] and Dwayne [Johnson] would call me like every other day, to discuss each scene, and they wanted to know every single detail. We were very passionate about this movie. So I was happy, and then, in the credits, they ended up throwing me in there anyway”.
After spending some weeks away to promote the movie Fighting with My Family, Paige made a backstage appearance on the 10 April 2019 episode of SmackDown, where she announced that she will bringing a new tag team to the division to feud with The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce) for their WWE Women's Tag Team Championship. A week later, Paige began managing the newly formed team of Asuka and Kairi Sane.
