Eva Marie had been slated to compete in WWE's SummerSlam as part of a six-woman tag team, but the female wrestling star was pulled from the line-up after violating the company's Wellness Policy.

The Total Divas star slammed the WWE's decision to hand her a 30-day suspension for failing to have her prescription for Adderall approved.

According to TMZ, the redhead diva's medication — commonly used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) — was legally prescribed and she now plans to appeal the month-long punishment. Adderall is also the medication that caused Roman Reigns and Adam Rose to violate the policy earlier this summer.

"I am disappointed that this suspension has occurred, yet understand and respect that WWE upholds their Wellness Policy to the letter and won't compromise on its integrity," the star, whose real name is Natalie Coyle, said in a statement.

"I violated policy by not turning in portions of required paperwork in the time frame WWE Medical deemed timely. I look forward to my return! Thank you for your support."

The 31-year-old rumbler's ban just days after fellow WWE star Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, was hit with a suspension on her birthday. It was the British wrestling star's first violation of the company's wellness policy.

In an interesting twist Paige's real-life partner, Alberto del Rio, was also given suspension in the same 24-hour period. No further details of the specific violation were made.

If the band is not overturned, Marie will not be able to return to the ring until 17 September. WWE SummerSlam 2016 pay-per-view (PPV) will air live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on 21 August.

Adderall – a mixture of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine – is used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. However, it is banned by some sporting bodies, including the American National Football League (NFL), Major League Baseball (MLB) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), because it can reduce fatigue in users and mask pain, and increase alertness. Professional gamers have also been banned from using it, by the Electronic Sports League.
