Following the announcement of Paige and Alberto Del Rio’s suspensions, it was speculated that they had both failed for the same drug since they are a real-life couple. That is not the case, according to Dave Meltzer on Saturday morning’s Wrestling Observer Radio show.
There is still no word on what they actually failed for but Paige’s mother, Saraya Knight, denied that cocaine was a factor when she was asked by a fan on twitter. The fan on twitter claimed that Dave Meltzer confirmed that it was cocaine, which is not true at all because Meltzer never mentioned cocaine or any drug in reference to her. WWE does not publicly disclose what talents fail for.
As we noted earlier, Paige has years left on her WWE contract so she is not likely to be going anywhere. Del Rio, on the other hand, is said to be leaning towards exercising the out clause in his contract. He was considering that even before the news of his wellness policy violation. TNA is said to be very interested in him.
Del Rio has a big money WWE contract and he can probably make good money outside of WWE but he is unlikely to make what he’s making now so it will be interesting to see what his next move is. Del Rio and Paige were spotted at the Combate Americas MMA event earlier this month and there is said to be interest in Del Rio from them as well.
