WWE says Paige tested positive for an “illegal substance” responding to allegations from her family

The New York Post is featuring an article with an official statement from WWE responding to recent allegations about Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis) and her second 60 day suspension from the company for violating the wellness policy.

The article referenced comments from Paige’s family claiming she did not fail a drug test and instead tested positive for painkillers that she was prescribed to help treat her current neck problems. Her family also alleged she was not receiving proper medical care.

WWE, in responding to the allegations, issued this statement.

“Saraya-Jade Bevis tested positive for an illegal substance, not a prescription drug. In addition, WWE is providing world-class medical care for her in-ring injury.”

We reported yesterday that Paige had issued a series of tweets responding to news about her second suspension where she stated “rules apply depending on your status.”
