As reported earlier, WWE decided to suspend Paige for the second time within two months of a span. Being a second-time wellness policy violator, Paige is now banned from the company for sixty days.
After the news was given by WWE, Paige took no time to respond with tweets and said, “It’s just as she said, same shit, different day.” She also stated that policies do matter depending on her status in the company.
Same shit different day. Kids..Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) October 10, 2016
Apparently, WWE is not happy at all with these offensive remarks from Paige. They don’t tolerate these kinds of protests against their decision and especially when it’s a sensitive thing like taking illegal drugs without their permissions.
So, they went right ahead to reveal the truth behind Paige’s suspension. WWE has posted an update regarding her status on the New York post quoting:
“Saraya-Jade Bevis tested positive for an illegal substance, not a prescription drug. In addition, WWE is providing world-class medical care for her in-ring injury.”
The News also mentioned that Paige’s father wrote on Facebook that his daughter is dealing with the neck injury for a long time now and it was not addressed.
Since the issue is growing day by day, she had no choice but to take pain-killer to get rid of the pain. But, all the drugs were prescribed by doctors.
Another report from Wrestling Observer newsletter confirmed that WWE does not allow superstars to take drugs without their doctor’s permission. The talents are well aware of the fact but Paige has violated the policy resulting in the suspension.
Dave Meltzer also pointed out the fact that Paige will not get her annual salary’s 1/4th since she is facing suspension in the company in a combined 3 months.
Furthermore, if she leaves WWE on bad terms, she will not be paid for her neck surgery. At this point, her future in WWE is in serious jeopardy.
Previously, when these kinds of situations took place, superstars and WWE decided to part their ways in future. Keep an eye here for more updates on Paige.
