Paige suspended for 60 days by WWE
WWE has been known to be extremely strict when it comes to its talent wellness policy since the death of Eddie Guerrero. The company has been diligently impartial in handing out suspensions irrespective of the status of the talent and the importance of the storyline he or she is involved in. Prominent stars like Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, and Del Rio have missed out TV time in the past owing to their respective violations.
The latest addition to the list is Paige, former two-times Divas Champion. This has been Paige’s second violation in less than two months which has resulted in a 60 days suspension for her from the company. She was earlier suspended for 30 days on 17th August due to her first wellness policy violation.
WWE posted the following on Facebook regarding Paige’s suspension-
Paige too was quick to respond and responded about the issue in her recent tweets-
Same shit different day. Kids..Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) October 10, 2016
Rules apply depending on your status.— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) October 10, 2016
Paige’s accusations about discrepancies in the companies policies don’t come as a surprise. Stars like CM Punk and Adam Rose have been vocal about the same issue in the past.
It has been well known that although still employed by WWE, Paige isn’t on very good terms with the company. Her relationship with recently released Alberto Del Rio has been known to cause some backstage heat on the diva.
However, her Instagram feed and tweets indicate that she’s currently enjoying a healthy relationship with her boyfriend, Del Rio and isn’t fazed about her status with the company . There’s a significant amount of doubt regarding her future with the company and it is expected that she might part ways with WWE in the near future. Also, it has to be noted that a third strike on the wellness policy would result in an immediate suspension for her.
