WWE star Paige detained by police and placed in handcuffs

Published 10 Comments

The WWE was rocked this weekend by the news that Jerry Lawler was arrested on a domestic violence charge following an incident with his fiancee.

The King was suspended by the WWE in the wake of the arrest, and the bad news hasn't ended there for the company. 

That is after it was revealed that current WWE superstar Paige was detained by police and placed in handcuffs following an incident after the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

According to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, via Pro Wrestling Sheet, officers were flagged down when a woman - the former Divas Champion - was seen running into the streets late last night.

After being detained, she had to be taken to the hospital for undisclosed reasons. That is why she was put in the ambulance with the handcuffs on, rather than being taken away in a police car.

It is possible that she was undergoing some sort of psychiatric evaluation after running into the street.

This woman turned out to be Paige. Photos of her and Alberto Del Rio - her current boyfriend - emerged on Twitter after the pay-per-view, showing him arguing with cops and her being taken away in the handcuffs.

At this point, no charges have been filed against the Norwich-born superstar and she was free to leave the state of Nevada as she appeared on Monday Night Raw yesterday in Phoenix, Arizona.

The former Champion faced off against the current Women's Champion Charlotte after Paige managed to pin her last week on Raw. The 23-year-old ended up losing her match with Charlotte thanks to a 'Natural Selection' following a distraction from Dana Brooke. 

That match ended with Sasha Banks coming out to confront Charlotte, which will no doubt be the feud running up to SummerSlam. Unfortunately for Paige, she will likely play no part in it whatsoever and go back to the role she has been used in for the last few months, as filler. 

Paige is a two-time WWE Divas Champion and a former NXT Women's Champion, credited with starting the Divas Revolution after her excellent work in NXT which was followed up by winning the title on her first night on the main roster. 

Naturally, the WWE are investigating the incident and any repercussions for the Englishwoman will likely come at the end of that.

Another day, another crazy happening in the weird world of the WWE.
