As noted, Paige's brother Zak noted on Facebook last week that Paige "hasn't left [WWE]" and "is back on the road with WWE from" today. WWE announced last month that Paige had been suspended for 30 days for her first WWE Wellness Policy violation. The suspension was effective August 18th, so her suspension ended yesterday.

It was widely rumored that Paige would not be returning to WWE after her real-life boyfriend, Alberto Del Rio, gave notice and was granted his release from the company earlier this month. She had recently acquired legal representation, and Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that she did quit WWE last week at one point, however an attempt was made to "mend fences" and things were settled.

Meltzer added that WWE had at one point made the decision to fire Paige before the announcement of her Wellness policy failure, however they changed their minds.

As noted, Paige posted the following on Instagram last week:

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 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. 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.
