On 17th August, WWE.com made this announcement, “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.”
Little or no facts is known regarding the suspension, all that fans do know is that this news comes hours after Alberto Del Rio whom that it is reported that Paige is dating since May 2015, was suspended as well after breaking the company’s talent wellness policy.
It is understood that Paige despite celebrating her birthday on this date is currently on a hiatus due to a back and shoulder injury and will return to RAW after her recovery as well as the suspension.
It is also unknown what reception the former two-time Divas Champion will receive backstage upon her return, but fans on social media have already stated their disbelief at this recent news and would like to see Paige who was once ranked the #1 best singles female wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated return to the spotlight.
It was at the age of 10 Paige decided that she wanted to start learning to wrestle with her brothers. In 2005, she made her debut at World Association of Wrestling, a promotion run by her family, in the ring at the age of 13 by the name Britani Knight. Afterwards she went on to hold several championships on independent circuits within Europe and USA. In 2011, she signed a contract with WWE and started wrestling within its developmental systems, making it to the NXT Women’s Championship Tournament finals, Paige defeated Tamina Snuka followed by Alicia Fox and capturing the Championship in June 2013 after beating Emma to win the title.
