Speaking on her Twitch stream, Paige says she isn't done just yet.

"I'm not fucking done," she said. "I'm not done yet. This is going to be my comeback story. I'm inspired. I'm so inspired by the people coming back to wrestling and the more I think about it, I'm like, 'Okay, mentally, I'm ready to go.' I'm going to start working around, getting in the ring a little bit. Maybe. We'll see. This is not saying I'm making a comeback tomorrow. It's a long fucking road. I still have to get cleared by doctors, I have to get cleared by WWE. It's such a bg process, but emotionally, I'm ready. The past few months, I didn't think I was emotionally ready, but no, I'm fucking ready to get back on the horse. Even if it takes me a year. One step at a time, build to it, that's exactly what I'm doing. There's a whole journey and it's going to take some time."

Shortly after her comments, a user asked about AJ Lee possibly coming back at the same time as Paige.

Paige replied, "If AJ comes back, that would be a separate occasion. You can't have two massive comebacks in one day. I'm not going to tell you if I am going to return, but when I do -- and I'm saying when because I fucking am -- when I do, I will not tell you. It will be a surprise."

Paige said she's going to keep fans updated on her progress on her TikTok page. She said he kept envisioning a comeback and it's all she can think about.

She also addressed incorrect reports about her leaving WWE after she stated that her contract is up in June 2022.

She said about the reports, "I'm not leaving WWE, not that I know of [laughs]. Did I get fired? I'm still working for WWE. My contract isn't up yet. I love the WWE."

Fightful will continue to update fans on Paige's progress and in-ring status as her journey begins.
