Update on Paige's contract status with WWE



We've gotten emails asking about Paige's status in WWE following her wellness policy violation. Paige, who is out for 30 days, will not be leaving WWE even though there is heavy speculation that Alberto Del Rio will be leaving next month. We've noted before that Del Rio has an out clause in his contract that would allow him to leave the company in mid-September. The feeling among people that know Del Rio is that he is leaning towards leaving. He has a big money contract so I don't think WWE would be too upset if he chose to leave since they haven't exactly been doing much with him creatively since he returned late last year.

Dave Meltzer noted on today's Wrestling Observer Radio that Paige has years left on her contract so you shouldn't expect her to leave anytime soon and I doubt WWE would just allow her to walk into TNA or ROH if she wanted to leave before her contract expires. I should also note that Paige is one of the featured characters in the animated movie "Surfs Up 2: WaveMania" (set to be released in the spring of 2017) and she is part of the upcoming season of Total Divas so that should shut down any rumors about her contract status with the company.

Meanwhile, Paige's mother Saraya Knight posted this poem about her daughter following the news of her suspension:

You hear a little whisper
Of course it must be true
If everyone is saying it
No explanation is due.
Its because you're in the spotlight
And Everything is real
People have a say in your life
It's all the famous deal.
Because you have no feelings left
Nothing is meant to hurt
"You chose this life, it's all your fault"
You life is sheets of dirt.
But let me tell you something
Words hurt most of all
Especially when the words are wrong
And everyone wants to see you fall.
You rise above it all because the truth it will come out
And everyone around you
Will shout we had no doubt.
Fame is a cosmetic business
You're hated because you succeed
You gave away your childhood
you decided to take the lead
You chose to make a difference
You chose to be a light
You chose to guide the way
Because you are a knight.
You put belief in people who would otherwise be lost
You gave a voice to those who were muted at all costs
You showed the world what happens when you stand up for belief
You showed the world how to walk with pride and how to give relief
Relief to those that are troubled, bullied and in pain
You showed the world not to look down on those with disdain.
You will always be a leader because that's just what you do
I will always be proud of you, my girl, just for being you xxx
