British wrestling Diva reveals the real reason she was hit with a 60-day suspension
WWE sex tape scandal star Paige has opened up on her suspension from the company and insisted: “I don’t do drugs.”
The Norwich-born 24-year-old, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, was issued with a 60-day suspension back in October for her second violation of the wrestling company’s Talent Wellness Programme.
She has previously denied taking illegal substances, despite also being suspended for 30 days last August also.

However, in the latest episode of Total Divas, she revealed the real reason that she was banned.
Filmed back last year, Paige had just learned of her suspension from WWE and broke down crying.
She said: “WWE posted a statement about me failing the wellness policy.
“We get drug tested all the time…first of all, I don’t do drugs.

“Second of all, I did the test and I passed it. They’re only suspending me because I didn’t take it in the allotted time that they gave me.”
That incident started several months of hell for the British grappler – who is currently on hiatus due to injury.
Earlier this year explicit images and videos of the former Divas champion engaging in sex acts with two separate male wrestlers were leaked online.
Paige, who is the focus of a Hollywood film being made by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, also used her former title belt in a sordid act.
Things do seem to now be looking up at least for Paige, who has recently married former WWE star Alberto Del Rio.
Speaking prior to tying the knot with the Mexican star, who has publicly defended his partner, Paige admitted that she thought of harming herself as her world crumbled.
She said: “I made a big mistake. Huge. I put trust in the hands of someone that took advantage of a young girl years ago.
“It was my mistake and I’ll always take responsibility – but the one thing that was the hardest was thinking ‘my husband is gonna leave me, my family will disown me’.
“But I’m blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am.
“They know I’m not a bad person and they held my hands through hell.
“Because as my husband says, ‘you may feel like the devil is throwing you into a storm, but just remember, you are the storm’.
“And he’s right. But we are human. Unfortunately people don’t see it that way when they are behind a keyboard.
“They don’t think that we have feelings or that we don’t suffer. Not only was I a victim of viral humiliation but a victim of cyber bullying. I had days where I wanted to physically harm myself.”
