Paige and Del Rio’s Relationship Drama Getting Worse

Drama, drama, drama. Are they or aren’t they? The pair sure have been hot topics as of late, especially with their on again/off again romance. Just a few weeks ago, TSJ reported that the break up rumors were true. But now, it seems that the duo has made amends following their break-up at Universal Studios. In recent weeks, the two have posted many photos confirming that they’re back together. But some things never change, and drama is a mainstay for this relationship.

Sadly, the drama doesn’t stop there.

Now, following an incident in Orlando International Airport over the weekend, ADR is being investigated for domestic violence. As if they haven’t already been all over the news for their wild antics and Del Rio’s drunken slurs. Since the investigation is underway, Global Force Wrestling has suspended Del Rio.

The entire story is messy, but as an avid follower of Paige, I’ve been trying to keep all the ducks in a row with this topic. Formulate your opinions as you read on…

The Witness’ Story

A witness who was at Orlando International Airport claimed she saw the entire altercation between Paige and Del Rio. Her side of what happened is deeply disturbing. Now, initially, Paige told Twitter that she was the one who called the cops after a crazy fan threw a drink on herself and Del Rio.

The fan has since come forward, telling that “never happened,” revealing that Paige screamed “You’re so abusive to me!” at Alberto.

She admitted that she snapped a quick photo of Paige, but noticed that the former Divas champion exited the nearby restaurant and was on the phone crying. Del Rio came storming out, soaked in liquid, and the fight escalated quickly. The witness recalls:

“He was soaked and she was saying, ‘You’re such an abusive husband, I hate you. You’ve ruined my life, you’ve ruined my career,’” the witness said. Alberto fired back with, “Check her bag, she’s got all the coke in it, it’s all hers.”

ADR also said some nasty thing about Paige’s family:

“From what I gather, he said something like, ‘I hope your f***ing uncle dies tomorrow’, and grabs her wrist because he was mad she was on the phone for so long,” the witness said. “They wanted to leave, so he got mad and grabbed her wrist. She got upset and threw water on him and she ran out.”

Paige’s Story

Since the witness has come forward, Paige has made a statement via Twitter in regards to the topic.

“Alberto didn’t want me to say full story because he didn’t want people to know and I didn’t want people to know and I didn’t want people to know that I threw a drink on him. But the full story is. I had a phone call saying my uncle is in a bad way. I’m crying outside the restaurant. I go in, alberto is hugging me. I’m a little sensitive and we start bickering about something so small… I threw a drink in his face because I was so angry. Again. Shouldn’t have done it. It was in front of a lot of people. I walk out. He follows me a few seconds later and gets the cops and security and a crazy lady decides to leave whatever she’s doing to follow us and invade our privacy in the completely low way. Only low life people would do.”

“Anyways. It was ME who was being held for battery charges because I threw a drink on him. No. he never touched me and no I never hit him with a glass 3 times..Oh and guess what internet. He smelt like beer BECAUSE I THREW BEER ON HIM. Nothing more. Nothing less. No one got arrested…The horrible, disgusting human being of lady decided she wanted to make money out of our misfortune. I wish, WISH people would give us the privacy we deserve. I know we won’t get it. But I WISH that would happen.”

Conflicting Stories

Now, if Paige were telling the entire truth, I have to wonder why Global Force decided to suspend Del Rio if he wasn’t at fault. To me, it looks like Paige is protecting her so-called “Papi.” Their romance has been nothing but drama since day one. As much as I adore Paige in the ring, she has really fallen from grace. It seems that she might think so, too; and it’s safe to say a lot of it is because of her romance with the GFW champion.

Though the internet likes to spin things in a certain way, I really don’t believe this witness was a “crazy person.”  Paige was quick to switch the focus, demanding privacy. The witness sounds like a decent human being who wanted to help, not just some crazed fan. I know fans can get a little whacky. Paige has had her fair share of media drama. She’s right in wanting some privacy. Yet, given the circumstances, it isn’t the greatest idea. In this case, Paige is making some bold statements.

Even worse for the investigation, TMZ has obtained an audio clip from the airport incident. The audio can be heard here. Warning: Paige swears like a sailor. But if you’re a fan of Total Divas, you already knew that, didn’t you?

…But Which One is True?

Interesting that Paige’s story has suddenly changed since the witness has come forward, isn’t it? Her stories simply don’t add up. Plus, the first one was a complete lie. No, no crazy people threw drinks on anyone. Unless you count Paige, that is.

We won’t know the truth until it’s too late. In the meantime, hopefully the relationship cools off a little. The best thing for each of them would be time apart. Hopefully the local law enforcement can get to the bottom of things. Even if they do, though, will she still go running back to Alberto? Signs certainly point to yes.

Additionally, it is important to point out that even Paige’s brothers don’t like Del Rio. They have stated on Twitter that ADR is abusive towards Paige. That theory lines up quite well, unfortunately.

Well, what do you guys think of this insanity?  I’ve been suspecting for awhile that drugs are part of the issue here. Paige has been acting erratically, and the audio clip confirms just that. Alberto’s claims about her bag heightens that suspicion. How long has it been going on ? Well, that’s debatable. The anti-diva has been suspended twice from the WWE for wellness policy violations.

Who is telling the truth? Is this a case of a fan telling a tall tale? Or is Paige in true danger here? Is Alberto actually the victim?Do you just wish they would end things for good?

If Paige ever wants her career back, that’s really the only way.
