At last, Paige has broken her silence on her current 30-day suspension from WWE for her first violation of the company’s talent wellness program.
This afternoon on Twitter, Paige sent out this statement explaining her suspension.
First, I’d like to thank all my fans for their love and support the last few weeks. Let me begin by saying that the rumors I’m leaving the WWE are completely false! I certainly look forward to returning back to action at some point, once my injury is treated and on a healthy return.
Although I was disappointed by my suspension, I respect the WWE’s Wellness Policy. However, let me be clear that I was not suspended for failing a drug test, it was merely due to a procedural issue. I took the test, I passed it. I arranged said test to happen after I wasn’t at home when aegis contacted me. So I drove 200 miles to do it. Unfortunately I didn’t do it on time, according to Aegis.
Once again, thank you for all the love and support!
