Former WWE Divas Champion Paige has once again been suspended for violating the WWE Wellness Policy … and now her father is saying it’s due to pain pills she was taking for her neck injury.
WWE issued a statement saying, “WWE has suspended Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige) for 60 days effective immediately, for her second violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.”
As you may know, Paige is currently out of action due to injury and, despite rumors that she planned to quit WWE, she has asserted that she planned to return to action once she got healthy. The Total Divas star also claimed that she was not suspended for failing a drug test in August.
Her father Ricky Knight posted on Facebook about the suspension and said, “She has been in pain and out of in ring action for a fair while now and has been prescribed pain killers which apparently is against the wellness program. I feel my daughter has been let down big time in the USA and the proper care and advice needed in the position she has been in has not happened.”
We’ll keep you updated if anymore information is presented.
UPDATE: A rep for WWE released a statement to the New York Post saying, “Saraya-Jade Bevis tested positive for an illegal substance, not a prescription drug.” Adding, “In addition, WWE is providing world-class medical care for her in-ring injury.”
