Paige Suspended for 60 Days; The Full Story

Former Divas Champion Paige Suspended; Could There Be More To It?


In a statement released on WWE’s corporate website, former WWE Divas Champion Paige, Saraya-Jade Bevis, has been suspended for 60 days due to violating the wellness policy for a second time. Paige was suspended for 30 days, after her first violation, back in August. Paige had yet to appear on TV before her second suspension began; reports say that Paige has been undergoing neck surgery, for a series of shoulder/neck injuries that were sustained this year.

The speculation is coming in fast; judging by these tweets, the situation is more complicated than “she’s on steroids”. Whatever her recuperation process might be could involve a complicated series of medicines, some of which can apparently cause a suspension from WWE.

On the other hand, there are rumblings that Paige is purposefully attempting to sabotage her contract with WWE, in order to get her release from the company. WWE’s contracts and talent’s health have various instances of butting heads in the past, with the likes of Rey Mysterio and Daniel Bryan going through the motions in that regard.

Regardless of the reason for the suspension, and ignoring any conspiracy theories, it’s safe to say that Paige and the WWE are on rocky terms at the moment. Ever since Paige and former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio have gone public with their relationship in May, troubled times have become magnetised to the former “Anti-Diva”.

The talent of Paige is unquestionable; since her debut in 2014, alongside AJ Lee, Paige was one of the figureheads of the Divas division. However, since the debuts of the Four Horsewomen and various other NXT women’s superstars, Paige has become lost in the shuffle.

It’s likely that we won’t see Paige perform in the WWE before she is inevitably granted her release from the company, and goes off to do whatever she pleases elsewhere. With that being said, it’s always a shame to see talent depart from the WWE in this manner. The fact that this kinda departure has happened more frequently in recent years begs the question; what caused the floodgates to open, and why?

Could we be seeing a change in the company very soon? Knowing WWE, probably not. Stay tuned as 2016 continues to be the weirdest year in wrestling, as Paige becomes the only woman to be suspended from the WWE on two occasions.

What are your thoughts on the situation? Could we be seeing Paige leave the company soon? Comment below!
