WWE has released the above and below Raw Fallout videos.

Paige hasn't wrestled for the WWE since she injured her neck during a six-woman tag team match of Absolution members of herself, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville vs Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James at a WWE live event at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island last month.

As Dana Brooke reveals she will compete in the 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match on January 22, Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews celebrate their second straight victory over Cesaro & Sheamus.

As noted, former WWE Divas Champion Paige's career is over as in-ring performer under the WWE banner.

With just two weeks to go before the 2018 Royal Rumble, WWE has added yet another match to the card of its first pay-per-view of the calendar year, as Cedric Alexander will get a second chance to win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against the "Realest Champ in the Room", Enzo Amore. Thankfully, PWInsider.com has confirmed that Banks doesn't have heat from WWE personnel, as Mike Johnson reports that people backstage have "told" PWInsider.com that there is no heat. Joe has been pulled from WWE live events through March and is being replaced by The Miz in match advertisements.

Samoa Joe has now been removed from WWE's list of Royal Rumble entrants, both internally and on their website. Unless a miracle happens, she will likely never have another WWE match.

Paige had previously said on Lilian Garcia's podcast, that her surgeon had advised her against wrestling again. Until they do, they probably won't mention anything about her retiring from the ring.
