World Wrestling Entertainment has suspended former Divas champion Saraya-Jade Bevis, aka Paige.
E! News obtained the statement: “The WWE has suspended Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige) for 60 days effective immediately for her second violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.”
Though the WWE doesn’t offer much information regarding the suspension, Paige took to Twitter to address the news. “Same shit different day,” she wrote. “Kids..Please don’t get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.”
She later added, “Rules apply depending on your status.”
Paige first violated the wellness policy in August. According to reports, Paige was away on vacation with her boyfriend Alberto Del Rio during an unannounced drug testing period and couldn’t get back in time to take it. Therefore, she was automatically suspended.
Same shit different day. Kids..Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.

“Let me be clear that I was not suspended for failing a drug test, it was merely due to a procedural issue,” Paige said in a Twitter statement at the time, regarding the first suspension. “I took the test, I passed it. I arranged said test to happen after I wasn’t at my home when Aegis contacted me. So I drove 200 miles to do it. Unfortunately, I didn’t do it in time, according to Aegis.”
Still, Paige had yet to return to the ring following the first suspension due to a reported neck injury, which she had surgery for.
“OK here we go again yes i know about my daughters suspended once again she has not failed a drugs test,” he wrote. “My daughter has had a long term neck injury which [in my opinion] has not been dealt with. i have ask my daughter to return to UK For help with this injury as help and direction in the USA Has not been forthcoming.”
He continued, “She has been in pain [in] and out of 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.”
He concluded, “To say i am pissed off with the situation is an understatement, this is my statement i am not open to questions thank you for your cooperation.”
