Paige speculated that her doctor's note and prescription was against company policy. Her parents and brothers noted that she was using painkillers to help with a neck injury, which will require surgery.

WWE has issued a statement, which can be read below,

"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."

Paige's suspension will be up in early December.
