WWE superstar Paige has released a statement about her current status with the WWE.
The former Divas Champion was suspended from the company at the same time as her boyfriend and former WWE wrestler Alberto Del Rio. When the Mexican announced he would be leaving the organisation, it was rumored that the British superstar would soon follow suit.
However, in a statement on her Twitter profile, Paige put to bed several rumors, including the ones involving her leaving the company she had called home for five years.

She said in the statement: "First, I'd like to thank all my fans for their love and support the last few weeks. Let me begin by saying that the rumors that I'm leaving the WWE are completely false! I certainly look forward to returning back to action at some point, once my injury is treated and on a healthy return."
Paige would then go on to talk about her suspension, stating that she didn't fail because for taking banned drugs, but due to the fact she missed the time slot to have her test taken, which results in an automatic failing.
She said: "Although I was disappointed by my suspension, I respect the WWE's Wellness Policy. However, let me be clear that I was not suspended for failing a drug test, it was merely due to a procedural issue. I took the test, I passed it. I arranged said test to happen after I wasn't at my home when aegis contacted me. So I drove 200 miles to do it.
"Unfortunately I didn't do it in time, according to Aegis. Once again, thank you for all the love and support!"
Paige is expected to return to the WWE within the next week, with her 30-day suspension running out this Friday, so she could make her return next week on Raw. It will be interesting to see what kind of creative ideas the company has for the British superstar and whether or not she will be in the Women's Championship picture as well.
