There are some moments in life, good or bad, that one will never forget. For former WWE star Paige, one of those moments was when photos and videos of her were leaked, without her consent, in 2017. In an appearance on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Paige took Paquette through the day, and how she found out while in San Antonio, Texas.

“It was just the most awful moment of my life,” Paige said. “The person that I was with at the time showed me a picture on Twitter. And I was just like, ‘Oh my God. Is that real?’ I couldn’t believe it was real at first, because I was 19 [at the time]. I was completely fucking mortified. I ran out of the house, and I just kept running. I remember I was inside a fucking bush, and I’ll always remember this, just sitting in this bush because I was like ‘If people recognize me, they’re going to know.’

“I felt so stupid to have trusted this person at the time. I never done it since, that was a lesson I learned, and I’ll never be caught dead doing anything like that again. But I felt so fucking stupid and I felt so embarrassed, and I was already a cokehead at this time and loved to drink. That really got me to the point where I didn’t want to be alive anymore. It was fing awful. I was just so fucking sad, and I remember being like ‘If my dad is a disappointed with me, I don’t think I could be here anymore. It got to that point.”

It was then that Paige decided to call her father, pro wrestler turned promoter Ricky Knight, who offered his unique support.

“I was just crying my eyes out, and I was like, ‘I’m so sorry,'” Paige said. “My dad was like, ‘What are you sorry for?’ And I was just like, ‘I don’t know. I just don’t want to disappoint you.’ He was like, ‘Are you kidding me? That shit made Kim Kardashian famous.’ He was trying to make a joke. He said, ‘Who cares? You had sex. Everyone’s done it. Unfortunately, you’re just in the public eye, right?’

“He was like, ‘It is what it is. You’ve got to suck it up. It’s going to hurt for a little bit and people are going to make fun of you for forever. But I just want you to know that I’m still proud of you and I’m not disappointed.’ He instantly changed the way I was feeling because I was very down. It was bad. I was ready to fucking end it all. It was just the most morifying experience.”

“I spoke on the phone with Mark Carrano, and I was like, ‘I’m going to lose my job. This is it too,'” Paige said. “But they were like, ‘Listen, it’s not your fault.’ That’s why I will never talk shit about them, at least publicly. They were so supportive and they were like, ‘We’ll get through it. We’ll try to get as much off the internet as possible.'”

These days Paige doesn’t let the incident bother her, save for one thing that involves her family and friends.

“The only thing I don’t like about it and it’s annoying that I’m even going to bring it up, but I hate that they send it to my family all the time to get at them,” Paige said. “That’s what they’ll do at this point. Even to my boyfriend. He’ll get it sent to him because it’s just fans that don’t want to see me or him happy.

“They’ll send it to anyone that’s close to me like, ‘This is your girlfriend. This is your daughter.’ I’m just like, ‘Who cares dude? What, are you a fucking virgin? It happens.’ So yeah. I got bullied relentlessly, it was fuckng awful. The bullying was starting to get me crazy to the point that I was cutting myself. I never thought I’d be a cutter, but I did, and it was fucking awful and I wish I hadn’t done it.”

There have been a lot of rumors and speculation on Paige possibly returning to the ring for WWE this year.

The speculation began after Paige made several cryptic tweets. She took to Twitter over the weekend and commented on her glory days, and the private footage that was released in 2018. The former WWE Divas and Women’s Champion declared that she has “a lot of career left” and that 2020 will be a good year for her.

“I get told that my glory days are over w/ my career & that I’m a ‘slut’ coz of the crap that got released about me. Just know again. Ppl make mistakes when they’re young. I’m not that person. Also my glory days are far from over,” Paige wrote.

Paige suffered a career-ending neck injury at a December 2017 WWE live event in Uniondale, NY, and then retired from the ring. She managed WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors until she needed to take time off for a hernia back in August 2018. The hernia was related to the career-ending neck injury, and she underwent another procedure last summer. The 27 year old revealed in a post-surgery Instagram postlast August that she had the neck of a 60 year old. Despite the rumors and speculation, a return to the ring seems unlikely based on the information she’s revealed.

Paige will return to her duties as an analyst and co-host on FS1’s WWE Backstage this week.

Paige recently spoke to Fox News about her successful career in WWE, which included multiple Divas Title reigns prior to her retiring. Paige has since been featured on television as the SmackDown general manager and, more recently, the valet for The Kabuki Warriors, Asuka and Kairi Sane.

Paige took some time to open up about how devastated she felt when a leaked sex tape of herself, Xavier Woods, and then-WWE superstar Brad Maddox went viral online years ago. She describes the experience as “publicly humiliating”, and remembers how she was losing her hair and eating scarcely because of the emotional scars. 

“Obviously, it’s very hard to stay positive when you have something that’s so publicly humiliating to yourself and then still to this day, this was over two years ago now. I did suffer a lot,” Paige revealed. “I did. Just emotionally because at the time I was having my neck surgery too, and I had stress-induced anorexia. I lost all my hair. I had some really horrible thoughts. I had to go to therapy. It took me a while to get over because obviously, no woman wants to go through that.

“But at the same time, I was like, ‘OK I can’t change this.’ Same with me not being able to wrestle,” Paige recalled. “I can’t change this. There’s nothing I can do about it. So why am I still dwelling on it? It happened. People have seen it. Like I can use this to help others now, you know? And it really does because I don’t look at it as a mistake. Everyone’s done that kind of stuff and it happened a long time ago when I was young and dumb and stuff happens and then you know, unfortunately it was released but I’m just like, “Hey, it is what it is. I can’t change it.”

Paige is using this negative experience to positively impact the futures of other women. She and The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella, have been advising young girls to be wary of what they share through their phones.

“And so now I’m going with the Bella Twins and we went to a woman’s hostel place, with kids and stuff, like I get to go talk to kids about it, I’m just like, ‘Hey, like never do something when it comes to your phones.’ Because like this is a different world nowadays,” Paige said. “Like things come out and things happen so I was like, ‘You have to think twice before you make the same kind of mistake as I did.’ So now I get to use it and utilize it on a different platform and help others with it. So I’m like it’s a horrible thing that happened, but now it’s a tool to help the next generation of people you know?”

Paige remembered a specific experience that she had with a young girl in a supermarket that would be the wake up call she needed to pull herself together. This would be the catalyst for Paige to actually accept WWE’s help and see specialists about her struggles. 

“Honestly, you surround yourself with toxic people, then that doesn’t really help [your hardships],” Paige explained. “So what I did because I remember walking through a supermarket and I was, I looked terrible because you know I was, I unfortunately did, I’m very open about this and I love to talk about it just because again it helps others — but I was, I unfortunately, popped the drug test in WWE because I was just going through a bad stage in my life and I was just so depressed that I just turned to something else you know?

“And I remember going through a supermarket and I looked terrible. Like I had no makeup on,” Paige recalled. “My hair was matted and falling out and I was really skinny. Like extremely skinny to the point where like you could see that I was very sick. But there was a little girl that came up to me and she looked at me like I was just the queen of everything because she doesn’t go on social media. She doesn’t understand it yet but she’s looking up at me, and she was like, “Paige I want to be like you one day.” And I was like, “What the hell am I doing?” For some reason like you’re in this bubble and then you just like click out of it and you’re just like, ‘What the hell am I doing?'”

Paige noted how adamant her family and friends were that she get help before things became as severe as they did, however, she felt too far gone for them to reach her. She believes that she is in a much better place with her health and looks forward to what the future holds. 

“I didn’t listen to my family, my friends. My work was trying to help me, constantly trying to reach out, and I completely just blocked it all out because I was in such a bad place, and this little girl just managed to make me snap out of it,” Paige said. “I was like, ‘Wow I’m a role model and what I’m doing right now is not very role model-esque.’ So I was like I want to have this little girl look at me in the future and be like, ‘Wow, look what she overcame. Not what overcame her.’ So I was just like OK. After that I was like, ‘I need to get my life together.’ So I did. 

“I reached out to WWE and they gave me all the help that I needed when it came to therapy with everything you know emotionally and substance and everything — they helped me and that was like a few years ago. So now I feel like I’m stronger than ever,” Paige continued. “It was all thanks to that little girl just looking at me and just being like, ‘You’re it for me. Please don’t mess up your life.’ So yeah, it’s the fans man who did it. They did it. Yeah, a couple of years later here we are! Getting the movie out there! Feeling healthy and happy!”

Wrestling legend Sid Eudy (aka Psycho Sid and Sid Vicious) came up through the ranks in the 1980s and he has some thoughts on today’s Superstars. In a recent interview with Hannibal TV, Sid voiced his opinion on Paige being made SmackDown GM after the embarrassment of various sex tapes and photos of her were leaked online.

“I think it’s the stupidest thing, but again, it goes to how the business is,” Sid said on Hannibal TV. “When the business is down like it is, they’ll OK things like that when this is the time you don’t OK something like that.”

“Usually it says to me that [WWE is] having a hard time business-wise. After that, I wouldn’t have her on my show. I would’ve fired her immediately… I don’t have nothing against her. I don’t have anything against any man or woman wanting to do things, but don’t do it in public like that.”

Sid then wonders if Paige has “something on someone” in WWE that enabled her to keep her job.

“If Charlie Rose gets fired [from PBS] from hanging around in his underwear, I mean we know things have been worse than that in the wrestling business,” said Sid.

When the interviewer then tells Sid that the photos of Paige, Charlotte Flair and others were hacked from their phones, Sid argues against that.

“They’re putting them out there… I don’t know. Just don’t take a picture like that… Let them do dark matches or something, but don’t make them the GM of your show.”

This week on SmackDownAiden English attempted to drive a wedge between Lana and Rusev by alluding to some immoral behavior by Lana. English asked Lana if she would tell Rusev about “that one night in Milwaukee” and rumors have been flying ever since.

Many people online have been speculating that English is talking about a sex tape involving Lana and The Rock, and Lana responded to those rumors on the Domenick Nati Show.

“A lot of this stuff online and people questioning about The Rock… This is 2018, why do we go to that immediately? I know we love a good scandal and we love the gossip, but when all of this comes out, there’s going to be no proof. I’m going to be having the last laugh,” Lana said.

“This should be a lesson to everyone it’s not okay to be slut-shaming people or to be saying these types of things towards women with the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp. We’re all past that and I hope that people will learn that it’s not okay to say or assume certain things.”

Lana also claimed that rumors of a video of her and another WWE Superstar are exactly that: rumors. “People love a good scandal,” Lana stated. “We love a good freakin’ scandal and a good soap opera.”

The host then asked Lana about WWE’s storyline process and if the wrestlers have any say in what their characters do.

“I would say it’s 100 percent up to Vince McMahon,” Lana said. “He is our director and we’re kind of a canvas. We have to make it our own but Vince McMahon is the director of the TV show. Its our jobs to bring what they want us to do to life. It’s a collaboration with creative but at the end of the day, he has final say.”

WWE star Paige has become the latest victim of hackers invading her privacy when explicit content of her, including multiple pictures and videos, was posted to the internet without her consent. The material began to leak Friday and was passed around various forums, where thankfully most site moderators acted quickly to remove them as soon they were posted.

It’s important to note that Paige, along with former WWE talent Brad Maddox and another man that is speculated to be Xavier Woods are victims here who should be treated with respect while dealing with this unfortunate situation.

The former WWE women’s champion tweeted the following statement addressing the incident:

The past eight months have been challenging for the popular young star – absent from WWE television since late July of 2016 when she was hit with consecutive wellness policy violations shortly before undergoing successful neck surgery. The injury has kept her on the shelf and there’s been no word on when she would be returning to active duty.

As of now, WWE has yet to address the matter but we will keep you updated if any news breaks on that front.

Recently on The Steve Austin Show, Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman talked about Joanie ‘Chyna’ Laurer. Topics discussed include how X-Pac’s romantic relationship with Chyna began, their infamous sex tape, and whether X-Pac would like to see Chyna in the WWE Hall Of Fame.

According to the former 1-2-3 Kid, he and Chyna got together when he was coming off of a breakup. Apparently, Triple H had some words of caution for his fellow Kliq member, as ‘The Game’ had firsthand experience dealing with Chyna romantically.

“I had a breakup right before I saw her, so I was kind of down. I was really kind of the ‘boohoo’, that ‘woe is me’ s–t. And she was there to scoop me up. Things just happened, man. I don’t even know how to explain it, but I just remember Hunter texting me, like, ‘hey man, hey kid, what kind of psycho s–t are you getting yourself into now?’ Yeah, it wasn’t like he was mad or ‘hey, what are you doing?’ He was just worried about me. Yeah, well, he had his experiences with her that I don’t want to get too much into. But he was just going by what his experiences were. I’ll leave it at that.”

As for how the sex tape idea came about, X-Pac claimed that a friend of theirs gave them the idea following with attention garnered by Paris Hilton’s sex tape. X-Pac said that he tries not to be ashamed of anything in life, but he certainly wishes that it never happened.

“My best recollection, we were living in Beverly Hills [California] over here off of Beverly Glen [Boulevard] and Wilshire [Boulevard] in one of Donald Sterling’s buildings. One of the people that worked there was always coming up and hanging out and it was a female security guard. I think she floated the idea about [making a sex tape] because of the Paris Hilton thing. And it just kind of built from there and she was down for it. And I was in, at that point, ‘okay, I’ll do whatever’, whatever made her happy. It was both of our [idea]. I would never blame anything on her.” X-Pac added, “I felt like dog s–t, Steve. My kids, man, my family. Not at all [proud of it], man. I try not to be ashamed of things because shame is not a good f–king thing to have. Right, but it is okay to not feel good about s–t you did in the past. And I can’t, obviously, it goes without saying that we can’t change it, man. But, man, I really wish that wouldn’t have happened. And it hurt her, man. Even though we both were in on it, like, the artwork on the cover of the DVD was so humiliating for her and the s–t that was written on it. So I get it, man. And really, that was one of the things that led to the downward spiral and she’s dead now, man.”

One of the few professional wrestlers to be a member of both D-Generation X and nWo stated that money was the motivating factor behind the decision to make the sex tape and he shared that he made “six figures” from the sex tape.

“I’m pretty sure [the motivation behind making the sex tape was financial]. It’s hard to put yourself in someone else’s head. I’m not sure. As far as my own motivation, sure, it was financial. Also, ‘hey, she wants to do it, then, okay. I’m fine with it. Okay.'” X-Pac said, “it’s six figures and I got $50k up front. She got $100. But what happened was, I came back after rehab and we actually filmed after the deal was made, they wanted more footage and we filmed it after. And then, I flew to China and filmed some footage over there, so they could add it to the video.”

Also, the man known as Syxx in WCW indicated that he would like to see Chyna inducted into WWE’s Hall Of Fame in the near future. Moreover, Waltman suggested that he would be uncomfortable with being inducted without her being an inductee as well.

“It’s important to me that she gets in there. I mean, she was part of the reason, like, she was really disappointed when it didn’t happen before when she wanted it. But they wanted her to get cleaned up, get some help. Come on, from their vantage point, when they get somebody to come up on the stage and accept the Hall Of Fame, to be inducted in the Hall Of Fame, they want to not worry about what they might say or make sure they’re kind of stable, so I get it from that point of view. But she deserves to be in there, man. And I don’t know if I’d want to go in without her going in. She deserves that sooner rather than later, man, I hope.”

WWE Hall of Famer and former WWE and WCW Champion Hulk Hogan was interviewed by FOX411 about his lawsuit with Gawker, his WWE status and much more. You can check out some highlights below, and the full interview above.

If he’ll be on WrestleMania 32:

“Not at this point. Wrestling has always been my life, and the whole thing was erased and taken from me. I have nothing but respect for the whole crew that runs WWE. I understand they had to do what was best for business in this case.”

If he’s racist:

“At the end of the day, they know I’m not racist. I made a dumb mistake that I’ll have to regret forever, but if I come back I’ll have to punch Vince (McMahon) right in the face (laughs). It’d be a dream come true.”

Why he didn’t accept a settlement:

“I wanted people to know what Gawker is all about. They destroy lives.”
