Del Rio Confirms Breaking Up with Paige

Well, folks, it seems that it finally happened. Paige and Del Rio are over. And man, it’s been a rough week for the self-proclaimed “anti-diva.” For starters, rumors of her break up with Alberto flooded the internet on Sunday. And while the whole thing looked shady, there’s been a bit of an update. The original story first reported by was true!

Now, how do we know this? Well, wrestling personality Dave Meltzer spoke to one of ADR‘s closest friends. This friend confirmed that, indeed, the lovebirds went their separate ways. Prior, they had been documenting their vacation together at the Universal Studios. Since then, Paige seemingly acknowledges the rumors via Twitter. However, neither has said much on their social media accounts.

Of course, it’s not impossible that they figure their differences out. Paige is a firecracker, and it’s likely she’s overreacting here. It can be noted, though, that they haven’t posted any further photos together since their weekend in Florida.

If things really are over between the pair, hopefully Paige can come up with an idea for covering up that awful tattoo of Del Rio’s name…

Also, hopefully she’ll return sooner rather than later as the Diva’s Revolution has started to falter.

More Changes for Total Divas

A few weeks ago, TSJ Sports reported that Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss would be appearing for the seventh season of the hit reality TV show. At the time, Paige wasn’t confirmed.

Well, news broke that she will not be returning for another season. Of course, given her relationship status with Del Rio, this wasn’t exactly a surprise. The two haven’t exactly made good images for themselves for the pro wrestling world. Paige has been off from television for quite a long time, following a neck injury and a couple of wellness policy violations. Paired with bad decisions, it looks like her time with the company is nearly finished.

However, the woman taking Paige’s slot is Miss Money in the Bank herself, Carmella. Carmella is in a real life relationship with Big Cass. The pair will definitely shake things up a little bit, given their silly and well-documented relationship from their NXT days. Could we see Bayley and NXT star Liv Morgan make cameo appearances? After all, they do have friendships with the Princess of Staten Island. Here’s hoping.

Natalya’s husband, TJ Wilson, will also return for the show. Hey, it’s about time we see Tyson Kidd again!

Additionally, Eva Marie and Renee Young will not be returning to the show. Eva Marie has opted to focus on her acting career. This should be an interesting seventh season with the shake up in the cast, though.
