Paige has once again been suspended by WWE for violating the company's wellness policy.

WWE's statement: WWE has suspended Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige) for 60 days effective immediately, for her second violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.

The suspension is standard for a second violation of the policy. No indication was given as to what caused it.

Paige addressed the suspension over the course of two tweets shortly after the news broke: "Same sh*t different day. Kids. Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable. Rules apply depending on your status."

The suspension comes nearly two months after Paige's first violation of the policy. She was originally suspended on August 17th, the same day as her boyfriend Alberto Del Rio was also suspended for violating the policy. Del Rio has since left the company after being granted a mutual release.

Del Rio echoed Paige's words when speaking about her suspension to ESPN: "It's just like she said in her statement this afternoon," Del Rio said. "It's just the same sh*t, different day my friend."

He also addressed rumors that WWE was trying to break the couple up in the WWE Draft: "To be honest, I don't care what they say or what they try to do," Del Rio said. "We are together and we are happy. I know a lot of people are not happy but regardless of whatever people say, we can be happy. We can be together. And we are going to stay together because we are happy."

"If someone is not comfortable or happy about it, we just don't care. We are going to continue our life. Our families are happy and we're happy. That's all that matters."

Shortly before the original suspension was set to expire, Paige took to Twitter to offer an explanation for the violation and claimed that she was suspended due to a procedural issue after not being home when the test was to be administered.

Paige also claimed that she would return to the ring when her health allowed. She recently tweeted that she would be undergoing neck surgery and had two surgery options she had to decide between.
