The story of Alberto and Paige continues to get even more interesting as the weeks go by. It is like a tragic love story that would rival anything Hollywood could offer. Even though some parts of this story are worrisome because they involve real people, those involved are fascinating nonetheless.
Paige was the WWE’s Anti-Diva and shot right to the top of the roster on the Raw after WrestleMania XXX when she toppled AJ Lee who was until that point thought to be unbeatable. She was everyone’s favorite British Crumpet for the longest time but eventually, other NXT female favorites joined the picture and she was quickly pushed out of the Women’s Revolution.
But what was going on behind the scenes might be even more interesting as Paige was featured on Total Divas and became a household name with millions of viewers on the E! Network. Her relationship with Alberto Del Rio kind of came out of the blue and it was briefly touched on during the final season Paige was on the reality TV show. But reports were WWE was trying to break the couple up which might have been a reason why they were drafted to different shows during the brand split.
Paige failed a wellness policy test and was suspended then she got neck surgery and has been palling around with Alberto like the Bonnie and Clyde of pro wrestling. They will pop up from time to time and produce some intrigue but the truth is they are real people and it got real in an Orlando airport earlier this month.
Alberto was under investigation for domestic abuse charges due to the incident and it was not a good time for him. GFW suspended him for this investigation but didn’t strip him of his title like Paige’s family did with their company’s WAW Title.
But now there is a bit of good news for Alberto. Pro Wrestling Sheet reported Alberto has been cleared in the investigation because Paige is now the one being looked at for battery charges.
The fact is if Paige has charges pressed against her and is convicted that WWE release would finally become a reality. She might have said she wanted her WWE release in the past, but she certainly doesn’t want it that way.
The wording in WWE’s policy is very clear on this matter too as it reads:
“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated.”
Let’s hope this situation clears up without any charges being pressed. We hope the best for Alberto and Paige and really care about them as more than just outstanding entertainers. Fans feel like they know them personally after they’ve been in their our for so long. It would be ideal if these two could make things work, but if they do split up that might not be the end of the world either.
One thing is for sure, we can’t afford another tragedy from this pro wrestling power couple.
