Details on Why WWE Could Release Paige If She’s Charged With Battery

As we noted earlier today, police officers have determined that Paige should be charged with battery, regarding the domestic incident involving her current fiancee Alberto El Patron, which took place at the Orlando airport on July 9th. It will be up to the State Attorney’s office to make the final decision as to whether or not Paige is charged.

Should Paige be charged with battery, she could be facing another WWE suspension, as she would be in violation of the company’s zero-tolerance policy as it pertains to domestic violence. The policy is as follows:
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.

WWE’s ability to fine, suspend or terminate a WWE talent will not be, however, limited or compromised in any manner in the event incontrovertible evidence of such illegal misconduct is presented to WWE. Section 9.13(a) of the WWE booking contract, commonly known as the “morals clause”, provides WWE with broad discretion and authority to act under such circumstances.
Should WWE decide to suspend Paige, it would be her third suspension in less than a year, and while it would not be her third Wellness Policy violation for testing positive for the use of banned substances, it would be her third suspension nevertheless, and WWE could make the decision to terminate Paige’s contract. The section of the WWE Wellness Policy which details penalties for a third violation of the Wellness Policy is as follows:
Third Violation: In the event of a third positive test for substances prohibited by this Policy other than marijuana and alcohol, the WWE Talent’s contract with WWE will be terminated and WWE will publicly disclose the WWE Talent’s name and that WWE Talent’s contract was terminated for a third violation of the Policy.
