The WWE has been on a roll this week with yet another suspension, this time to Eva Marie who was due to take part in a match at SummerSlam.
WWE has suspended Natalie Coyle (Eva Marie) for 30 days effective immediately for her first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.
This is the third suspension handed out by WWE this week following the suspension of Alberto Del Rio and Paige on Wednesday for 30 days.
Incredibly, these are the first two wellness policy violations for women in the 10 year existence of the WWE’s drug and alcohol testing.
The 3 suspensions this week follow the suspension of then-reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns at the start of summer.
It’s a sad violation for Eva Marie who had finally made her way to the main roster on SmackDown and had a very prominent role in recent weeks following the brand extension.
Her husband, Jonathan, will apparently be releasing an official statement and “facts” on the suspension soon.
That leaves the planned match between Natalya/Alexa/Eva vs. Naomi/Carmella/Becky Lynch at SummerSlam up in the air though WWE.com is teasing a handicap match or a new partner for Nattie and Alexa.
