UPDATE x 2: Court Bauer and Konnan discussed the Paige/Money in the Bank incident on the latest edition of “MLW Radio”. Konnan is a very good friend of Alberto Del Rio, who was there when the incident occurred.
Konnan claims the whole thing went down when Paige and Alberto Del Rio, a real-life couple, went to see the Absinthe variety show in Las Vegas following the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view. According to Konnan, the two of them got heckled by a drunk couple. The couple called Paige and Del Rio “fake wrestlers” and other things of that nature. After the heckling continued, an argument broke out and Paige was “accosted,” after which police were called to the scene. Everyone involved was handcuffed and Paige was briefly taken to an ambulance to make sure she was okay. The two were free to go after that and there apparently wasn’t any drunkenness on their part, nor any domestic dispute or jaywalking. Police separated everyone and sent them on their way. Of course, this is what Konnan (a good friend of Del Rio) says happened so believe what you will.
UPDATE: As was previously reported here on eWrestlingNews.com, WWE women’s wrestler Paige was “detained” by police in Las Vegas, NV following Sunday night’s WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view event. She was taken to a local hospital and released later that night. Police responded to the Caesars Palace hotel after reports that a women was running in the streets and acting odd. She appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol according to police. That woman was later identified as Paige. While she was “detained”, no charges were filed in the incident and she left the hospital after initially being taken there. WWE is still investigating the incident.
While he was present at the time of the incident, rumors and speculation that Alberto Del Rio (who is dating Paige in real-life) was involved in a domestic incident that led to police getting involved are completely false.
Paige competed at RAW on Monday night and is backstage at the WWE SmackDown TV tapings.
You can see a video of the incident below, which shows Paige being led away by police:
ORIGINAL: WWE women’s wrestler Paige was taken into custody and then taken to a hospital following the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view on Sunday night. She was hospitalized “under police detention”. Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed that Paige was taken to the hospital after local police were flagged down outside of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV due to reports of a woman who was seen running into the streets. She appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol according to police.
Police responded to the scene and caught up with and detained the woman — who sources say was Paige. Law enforcement was unable to identify her due to HIPAA laws. The officers determined that she needed to go to the hospital for “undisclosed reasons.”
Paige is obviously no longer under police custody or at the hospital as she worked a WWE Women’s Title match against Charlotte during RAW. It appears that WWE isn’t punishing her either as they wouldn’t have had her work RAW, especially in a title match.
