WWE Superstar Paige Suspended For Wellness Violation Yet Again

paige

      Paige and Alberto Del Rio deserve their own reality show. We previously reported on Del Rio’s stabbing, which has come into question, along with him being a no show at an AAA event where he was headlining. Now, the drama is in Paige’s court again; she has been suspended for 60 days for her second violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. Paige failed her first test for not being at home during the time she was scheduled to be tested, resulting in an official suspension on August 17, 2016.

      There is no official word yet on what caused this suspension, but Paige tweeted “Same shit different day. Kids…please don’t get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.” and “Rules apply depending on your status.” If Paige is suspended one more time for a violation, her contract with WWE will be terminated.

      This is purely speculation, but one has to wonder if Paige purposely got herself suspended and plans on doing it once more in order to have the contract terminated. Her relationship with Del Rio has caused countless problems with herself and WWE management, so this could be a way of her escaping her long contract. We will continue to provide updates to this story as they become available.

Alberto Del Rio Calling It Quits With WWE

hqdefault

      As we’ve covered, Alberto Del Rio is currently serving his first 30 day suspension, along with girlfriend Paige, due to a violation of WWE’s wellness policy. His name was pulled from all upcoming live events earlier today, including events that come when his suspension is over. This evening, Del Rio opted out of his contract and is done with WWE for good.

      On August 7, 2014, Del Rio was fired from WWE due to unprofessional conduct. This came from an altercation with an employee who allegedly made a racist joke either to or around Del Rio, causing him to act inappropriately. Following his departure, he went to wrestle for Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion, The World Wrestling Council, Wrestle-1, Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore VII show, the World Wrestling League, Ring of Honor, and Lucha Underground under the name Alberto El Patron.

      Del Rio made his return to WWE at the Hell In A Cell PPV in 2015 with Zeb Colter as his manager, where he defeated John Cena for the United States Championship. This began the strange MexAmerica storyline. In November, Del Rio joined the League Of Nations, aligning with Sheamus, Wade Barrett and Rusev. The League disbanded in April of this year, and since then, Del Rio has not been involved in a significant storyline.

      Del Rio said in an interview that he has three to five years of wrestling left in him and he hoped that they would be spent with WWE, but bad booking and his unhappiness with his girlfriend drafted to a different brand may have been the final nails in the coffin. It’s likely he will continue to wrestle under the El Patron name, and we will post updates on his bookings as they become available.

WWE Superstar Eva Marie Suspended For Wellness Policy Violation

td313clip2

      Just when you thought things were safe, WWE announced via Twitter that Eva Marie has been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of the Wellness Policy. Like Paige, who was suspended yesterday along with boyfriend Alberto Del Rio, this is Eva’s first violation of the policy. This will take Eva out of the six woman tag team match at Summerslam this weekend.

      Eva Marie was drafted to Smackdown, but has yet to compete due to kayfabe injuries, wardrobe malfunctions, and traffic delays. There was a chance that WWE had a storyline in place to keep her from even competing this weekend in order to put more heat on her, but we’ll never know for sure now. The rumored plan was to give Eva a huge push and eventually put her into the title picture, so it will be interesting to see how this suspension affects that.

      I’m not a fan of Eva, and she has been regularly criticized by many due to her lack of skills both in the ring and in promos. She had no wrestling experience when she signed with WWE and has not shown signs of improving, despite going back to NXT and spending months in training. Eva has been riding on her looks and her Total Divas stardom instead of ability and talent, so this suspension could be very damaging to her.

      As of the time of this writing, there is no word on whether or not this will affect Eva Marie’s scheduled appearances this weekend for fan meet and greets, though I suspect that it may. There has also been no word from Eva herself; she has yet to address the suspension and offer any sort of apology or explanation.

Jerry “The King of Domestic Violence” Lawler

play_g_jerry-lawler_mb_576

      After responding to a hang-up 911 call, WWE commentator, and 66-year-old cradle robber, Jerry “The King” Lawler and his girlfriend, 27-year-old Lauryn McBride, were both arrested early in the morning on June 17, 2016 by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Memphis, Tennessee. The report states that Lawler’s claim was that McBride scratched him in the face, threw a candle at him, and kicked him in the groin. McBride claims that Lawler struck her in the head, shoved her against the stove, and then grabbed a gun, which he put on the kitchen counter and announced that McBride should kill herself. Lawler argues that it was McBride who retrieved the gun, not him, and that she was drunk. Both were booked for domestic assault causing bodily harm.

      Lawler claims that the argument started when McBride refused to tell the truth about her whereabouts. He also stated that he was trying to keep her from driving since she was intoxicated. He told Fox News that “it will all come out that it was just basically a misunderstanding that got out of hand.” He also commented that he was able to brighten up the day for others incarcerated in the jail, and that he and McBride are still a couple and still engaged. Once WWE learned of the arrest, they issued the following statement:  “WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Jerry Lawler has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest.” Lawler stated to Fox News that he hopes the suspension will be lifted “when they realize and when the whole story comes out, things will be okay.”

      The first time I personally learned of Lawler’s relationship with McBride was during the 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony when I mistook her for his daughter, and mistook her son for his grandson. I understand the ‘age is just a number’ argument, but perhaps in this case, it is much more. I am older than McBride by eight years and cannot imagine what I could possibly have in common with a 66-year-old that would make for a healthy and happy relationship. One or both parties in this situation are being untruthful about the events that took place prior to the 911 hang-up call, and perhaps we will find out the truth on June 20th when the two are able to see a judge. If it is determined that Lawler was the aggressor, verbally and/or physically, I find it hard to have any sympathy for him if the WWE decides to uphold the suspension and the color commentator finds himself out of work. For the time being, both Lawler and McBride should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
