Missing in Action: Week of November 6th, 2017

With some big moments happening across the pond during WWE's UK tour, these are the superstars WWE neglected to use this week


This week’s Raw, SmackDown and 205 Live came all the way from not-so-sunny Manchester, England during the main roster’s biannual European tour. While the shows saw some dramatic moments in the form of title changes, plus the first appearance of many of the WWE’s UK talent on main roster shows, the shows were light on returns from absences. Here’s who was missing in action this week.

This week’s most notable absence: Paige

Paige is the most notable absence this week as there were multiple rumors about her return to television. If the reports that she is back training in the Performance Center are correct, then not having her return during the UK tour was a missed opportunity on WWE’s behalf. A Paige return would have popped the crwod massively, and could have been used as impetus for a number of storytelling avenues immediately. Sadly, it wasn’t to be.

Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. I am so passionate about WWE that I can predict at least 95% of all the results.
