As noted earlier in the day, former WWE Divas Champion Paige has been assessed a 60-day suspension due to her second violation of the company’s Wellness Policy. Paige had made a statement via social media regarding the matter, but she was not alone.
English wrestling promoter Ricky Knight, who is also Paige’s father, took to his Facebook page after news of the suspension had begun to circulate. He noted in the post that the suspension was due to pain killers, but she had been prescribed the medication to deal with a neck injury. The full post is as follows:
“ok here we go again yes i know about my daughters suspended once again she has not failed a drugs test.
My daughter has had a long term neck injury which imo 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 imo. She has been in pain and out of in 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 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.”
Saraya Knight, Paige’s mother, also commented on the matter via social media saying she wished that her daughter would return to the United Kingdom.
