Vince McMahon’s Original Royal Rumble Plans, Paige’s Next WWE Goal
According to WrestleVotes, Rollins vs. Lesnar was not the idea Vince McMahon had in mind. He wanted Braun Strowman to defeat Lesnar for the title at the Royal Rumble and then loss the title to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35. That means McIntyre, not Rollins, would have won the Rumble Match and Strowman vs. Lesnar would have never been removed from the card.
As seen on TV, the ending resulted in Universal Champion Lesnar vs. Rollins at WrestleMania 35. Triple H is said to be the person behind Rollins getting the nod and feels he has the potential to replace Roman Reigns as the company’s top babyface star.
– Paige will be making several media appearances in the coming weeks to promote the release of Fighting With My Family, which features The Rock. During a conversation with SkySports, Paige dressed what she hopes to accomplish next in WWE.
I wanna be a manager for somebody,” said Paige. “I don’t know who but I would love to do that. If that’s not the case then, I don’t know, I just want to be part of the company. I love this company. I just like to talk a lot. I don’t know if I’m any good at it, but I’ll give it a try.”
After a lengthy absence, Paige returned to WWE in the fall of 2017. Five weeks later, Paige hurt her neck again and was forced to retire. Her return and learning that she would never be cleared to compete inside a ring again aired as a WWE Network special.
As of now, Paige has no title with WWE since they eliminated general mangers. If Paige does want to manage, she has a experience with the former stable Absolution.
