In September 2011, after six months in Shimmer Women Athletes (SWA), Paige signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and was immediately sent to the Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) development territory.
After spending some weeks away to promote the film Fighting with My Family, Paige made a backstage appearance on 10 April 2019 episode of SmackDown, where she announced that she would be 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 new SmackDown draftee Kairi Sane called the Kabuki Warriors. The duo would initially be unsuccessful; however, while Paige was on an off-screen hiatus due to undergoing neck surgery, the duo would capture the titles on 6 October at Hell in a Cell, turning heel in the process.
In a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, she discussed the possibility of an in-ring return: “I think it is always a possibility one day, you can never say never. But it’s not going to be any time soon. You know, that’s mostly all I can say about it.
It’s really hard, because I just had a neck surgery in August. My neck is just getting healthier quicker the second time around which is crazy, I feel absolutely fantastic. So, we’ll see where it goes”.
