Paige suspended by WWE for wellness policy violation
Following Alberto Del Rio’s wellness policy suspension earlier this afternoon, Paige was also suspended by WWE for violating the policy.
The company’s statement: “WWE has suspended Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige) for 30 days effective tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 18, for her first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.”
Like with Del Rio, the 30-day suspension is standard for a first violation. WWE has not further commented publicly on either Del Rio or Paige’s suspensions, and it isn’t known what caused either violation.
Both suspensions were announced on Paige’s birthday.
The timing of their violations is curious given that Del Rio and Paige have been dating, but it isn’t clear if their suspensions are connected. Paige has been out of action recently with injuries that have been covered extensively by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Del Rio and Paige had been sent to different brands in the WWE Draft, and time will tell whether their suspensions will have further affect on their positions within the company.
