Mister Saint Laurent, who has broken WWE scoops in the past, spoke about the Alberto Del Rio - Paige relationship with former WCW matchmaker Kevin Sullivan on the latest episode of "MSL & Sullivan" on MLW Radio.com. Check out the episode at this link. MSL revealed that WWE's Mark Carrano approached the couple and harassed them about being together. MSL said:
MSL went on to say that WWE threatened to fire Paige if she did not split up with Del Rio. He said:
"A lot of people speculated if this was the reason [WWE] split them up in the draft and that's definitely what happened. The company did not want them together. They split them up in the draft by design and they threatened to fire Paige if she didn't break up with Del Rio."
As noted, Paige is currently serving a 30-day suspension for her first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. She's also dealing with back and shoulder injuries. Del Rio is reportedly finished with WWE, after being unhappy over creative decisions for months now, and will be free to work anywhere imminently.
