Eva Marie suspended by WWE for wellness policy violation


Following Wednesday's wellness policy suspension announcements for Alberto Del Rio and Paige, WWE announced another on Thursday afternoon as Eva Marie was suspended for violating the policy.

The company’s statement:"WWE has suspended Natalie Coyle (Eva Marie) for 30 days effective immediately for her first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy."

Eva Marie received the same 30-day suspension that Del Rio and Paige received for a first violation, and like them, there was no further indication given about what caused it.

She had been scheduled to compete at SummerSlam, teaming with Natalya and Alexa Bliss against Becky Lynch, Naomi, and Carmella but she now won't be able to participate in that match.

Eva Marie had been involved in weekly angles since being drafted to SmackDown where she invented increasingly outlandish reasons to keep her from wrestling. She originally couldn’t compete after an injury, then suffered a wardrobe malfunction, and then couldn’t make it in time for this week’s match because she got stuck in traffic.
