The WWE have been incredibly busy in the past week, suspending three separate superstars in the run up to SummerSlam.

Alberto Del Rio, Paige, and Eva Marie are all going to be out of action for the next 30 days for violating the Wellness Policy and could find their places in the company at risk.

Eva Marie came out and defended herself, giving the reasons for her failed test, but so far we haven't heard any information about the Del Rio and Paige suspensions. Until now that is.

According to a report from Steve Carrier of NoDQ.com, contrary to popular opinion, Paige and Del Rio were not found with the same substance in their system.

"As of this writing it is unknown what exactly what they were suspended for, however, we have been told that Del Rio and Paige were not suspended for the same thing," the report stated.

With Del Rio and Paige being a couple in real life, many were speculating that the talented duo had taken some sort of substance - with most saying a party drug - together.

That claim is unfounded but we still don't know what it was exactly that they were suspended for. Eva Marie came out and released a statement saying that she was suspended for not submitting some paperwork surrounding her taking of Adderall in time.

Adderall is the same drug that Roman Reigns was suspended 30 days earlier this year for taking.

NoDQ did give another update on Paige and Del Rio's status within the WWE.

"Regarding Del Rio’s contract with the company, he has an out-close for September, and it’s very like that he may actually leave the company."

"Paige on the other hand, she has several years left on her WWE contract, and they do not plan to release her from it."
