WWE have confirmed that Paige will be returning to this week's Friday Night SmackDown.

The 27 year-old was forced to retire in 2018 due to an injury but still makes appearances on the programme. 

Before her retirement, she became the two-time Divas champion and was the youngest wrestler to win the NXT women's championship at 21 years-old.

Bayley, who is the current SmackDown Women's Champion, will go head-to-head with Paige.

WWE said: "Bayley has shared plenty of opinions as the self-proclaimed model for the Women’s Division.

"After Lacey Evans and Naomi’s recent resistance fell unsuccessful, Paige will now step up to try and set the SmackDown Women’s Champion straight."

It will be Paige's first appearance on Smackdown since last October.
