World Wrestling Entertainment officially announced yesterday that Paige will be serving a 60-day suspension following her second violation of the Wellness Policy.

The former Divas Champion had only just finished serving a 30-day suspension from her initial rule break, but it was confirmed yesterday that she broke the Wellness Policy once again and will, therefore, be serving a two-month suspension.

Paige was quick to react to the news, taking to her official Twitter account to post two updates on her situation, and she hasn't been the only one to react.

Both her father, Ricky Knight, and her boyfriend, formerly known as Alberto Del Rio, have reacted to the news and it's clear that both of them are unhappy with how she's been treated.

Paige is currently suffering from a neck injury, which could keep her out of the ring for up to a year, especially if she needs to undergo surgery, and that is one of the things her father isn't pleased about.

Posting on his Facebook page, Knight hit out at WWE and criticised the way they treated his daughter, especially regarding her neck injury.

He wrote: "OK, here we go again. Yes, I know about my daughter's suspension, but once again, she has not failed a drugs test.

"My daughter has had a long-term neck injury which IMO has not been dealt with. I have asked my daughter to return to UK for help with this injury as help and direction in the USA has not been forthcoming IMO.

"She has been in pain and out of in-ring action for a fair while now and has been prescribed pain killers which apparently is against the wellness program.

"I feel my daughter has been let down big time in the USA and the proper care and advice needed in the position she has been in has not happened.

"To say I am pissed off with the situation is an understatement, this is my statement and I am not open to questions, thankyou for your cooperation."

Paige's father is clearly not happy with WWE and how they have treated his daughter, and he isn't the only one.

Ex-WWE Champion Del Rio has also discussed Paige's suspension and he's said the following, as per ESPN.com: "It's just like she said in her statement this afternoon. It's just the same s---, different day my friend."
