On the same day her boyfriend, Alberto Del Rio, was suspended for 30 days for a violation of WWE’s Talent Wellness Policy, it was announced by the organization that Paige will also sit out the same length of time for a violation of her own.
The company’s statement:
WWE suspends Paige
STAMFORD, Conn. — 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 wrestler’s suspensions.
Both suspensions were announced on Paige’s birthday, who turned 24.
The timing of their violations is interesting given that Paige and Del Rio have been dating, but it isn’t clear if their suspensions are connected. Paige has been out of action recently with a variety of injuries.
Paige and Del 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 organization.
