      Female Superstars and Multiple Injuries


      Recommended Posts

      When it comes to breaking glass ceilings and proving themselves this last generation of girls are kicking some serious ass. Im just wondering how much is too much, with how Paige got injured last year and now with Alexa and those rumors, have the women starting going too hard where they end their career extremely short and as fans are we putting to much on them? I love this era but i am scared for alot of these young women who seem to have to retire before 30. Ive been thinking about this and i wanted to see how others felt as well

      Not really it’s just the downside to being a poster star in general. Paige was going non stop since her debut, Alexa has been going nonstop since 2016 it just comes with the job. They really don’t get any real breaks when they are constantly in the title picture. Hell Alexa is recovering now and has still yet to miss any real tv time. The men’s division is just as bad especially on the Raw side of The company. I don’t buy the Alexa retirement rumor because it has no real merit or proof. I don’t see her wrestling until the Rumble once she gets cleared anyway though.

      Pretty much this, also I think Alexa shot down the retirement rumour recently.

      They really just need to cut back on live events tbh. It'll let the superstars have more time to rest their bodies, and plus it'll help ticket sales for TV. Most fans don't want to go to a TV showing when they were just at a live event a couple months prior till.

      I don't think the new style of wrestling the girls are serving today is a problem or "too much." Paige has been bumping since she was 12, and having wrestled as long as she did, she was bound to run into some problems that could potentially be career-ending (as seen with other wrestlers in the past with careers as long as hers.)

      In terms of Alexa, it kind of just comes down to a bad matchup. Alexa's used to working a slow, methodical, simplistic match with only a few moves, while Ronda is used to judo throwing hens at the speed of light without much thought. Alexa just wasn't ready for the impact or the speed and landed on ha head as a result.

      The boys have been dealing with the same stuff too, it's just a part of the business that the ladies are more than ready to deal with.

      not to sound blunt, but it comes with the job. They signed up for this fully knowing that their career could end from the most simple mistake or a big accident.I agree there's too many house shows and the yearly back-to-back international tours is alot, but they know the terms of their contract. 

      Paige abused her body by wrestling at a very young age with scoliosis- her career-ending injury was going to happen sooner or later 

      Alexa was going nonstop since her call-up and as @Queen of Hens mentioned, Alexa is used to working a slower, grounded matches. 

      it sucks, but it's not like WWE is purposely trying to injure their stars or coworkers injuring each other (Except Nia, but that's a different story :stephanie:)

      it's the fans' fault! bitches be begging for suicide dives and complaining when alicia does a chin lock most of the match to protect herself!

      Sorry, but suicide dives don't impress me.I just feel like you can put on a good match without having to do all these dangerous moves. You just have to be smart enough to put together a good, creative match. Most wrestlers today aren't very good when it comes to storytelling in matches so they resort to the crazy moves. Or at least that's how it seems.

      I know it comes with the job, and if WWE would treat them like people not money machines maybe they wouldnt be injured so much. I know thay their schedules is heavier now than the they were im just seeing a kind of trend (?)

      It isn't the moves, it is the fact that they use the same women over and over again. Nikki for example got her because she kept doing her finisher over and over again. I can almost guarantee had they gave Nikki a break between reigns she wouldn't need her neck tightened every other year.

          While appearing as a guest on WWE Backstage, Charlotte Flair was asked to look back at the five year anniversary of #GiveDivasAChance, along with Paige. Most notably, Renee Young immediately credits AJ Lee and her pipebombshell, along with the Bella Twins, for getting the ball rolling for the revolution. Paige piggy backs to say AJ Lee was the first person to really make people take notice of the division, namely with her mic work (it's AJ who, in her opinion, is the best woman ever on the mic). Charlotte and Paige then both talk about how while they were in NXT, they saw the women on main roster not getting time to wrestle, so they strived to change that. Charlotte then continues off of Paige's point about AJ Lee to say that the women before AJ definitely had the talent and weren't really given the opportunity to show it, but it was AJ who started the trend of being a distinct, unique character, which snowballed into what was seen on NXT; from that point forward the women weren't just groups of women thrown together. Then from there, every opportunity the girls were given, they just continued to deliver.
          Paige then goes on to talk about the pressure to live up to the hype following #GiveDivasAChance despite remaining cynical about being given opportunities, but says the Horsewomen came up and kept stealing the show, which elevated the women around them's in ring performance, namely the Bella Twins. Charlotte agrees and says the women all made each other better.

          As noted, the latest episode of WWE’s “After The Bell” podcast features host Corey Graves talking to Paige, Charlotte Flair and The Street Profits.
          Paige talked about how much she enjoys working on WWE Backstage, and joked about how she’s always fighting for air time with WWE Hall of Famer Booker T because he talks a lot. She also mentioned how there’s a “cuss jar” that the hosts apparently have to put money into when they let expletives slip. Paige noted that the filming process is very quick and easy, taking just a few hours from the production meeting until when they wrap filming. She said she’s done in just a few hours and then she goes home, and gets to sleep in her own bed as she lives in Los Angeles where the show is filmed for FS1.
          Graves asked Paige about the freedom she has on the show and if she enjoys it.
          “Honestly I wish I could have more,” Paige said of the freedom. “Because sometimes, you know you get a little bit pulled back, but obviously with CM Punk on the show now, since he’s working under the contract with FOX and not WWE, he can voice a lot more opinion, but I would love to go in even a little bit more. I love to talk crap, honestly, and you know, what I feel like the crap that I talk is what the people are saying anyway. So, it feels good, but I wish I got to do it more.”
          Paige had nothing but praise for WWE NXT Superstar Rhea Ripley when Graves asked who she likes these days.
          “Dude, I love Rhea Ripley,” Paige said. “I think she’s great. I think she’s the full package – just everything about her. Her promo, her wrestling, even her wrestling gear. Like everything about her, I just think she’s great, I think she’s absolutely wonderful. She’s like super young, right? She’s 22 or something like that? I’m like, what the hell, you’re doing way better than I was at 22. [Ripley is 23 as of October 11]. Actually, that’s a lie, I was the Divas Champion. I’ll take that back, but I love her, I think she’s great.”
          Paige also revealed that she has a “massive project” that she is working on, but she couldn’t say more because she’s not allowed to right now. She noted that she’s “super excited” and hopes to reveal the project in the early part of 2020.
