WWE star Paige opens up about leaked sex tape hell

WWE star Paige has opened about her leaked sex tape, failed drugs tests and injuries as the SmackDown Live boss is set to be subject of a new documentary on WWE Chronicles

The 26-year-old Brit – who was forced to retire earlier this year – spoke out after she overcame a difficult 2017.

Paige was left suicidal and suffering with stress-induced anorexia as things spiralled out of control.

She was subject of a horrific sex tape leak, failed WWE drugs tests and capped it all off with a career ending injury.

Speaking out ahead of the new documentary on her, set to air on the WWE Network, Paige revealed she wants people to “learn from my mistakes”.

The star revealed it was WWE Hall of Fame star Edge, who was also forced to retire with injuries, who helped her through – and the WWE fans.

“You hear a bunch of my stories, the year and a half I took out, just everything,” Paige told the Mirror.
"All the trouble I got myself into... I was just very open about everything.

"I was very open with the taped sex that unfortunately got leaked, and the [failing] of drug tests.

“I was just very open about everything because I want people to learn from my mistakes, you know?”

Paige spent a year-and-a-half on the sidelines due to injury after the WWE draft in 2016.

She was then suspended twice for violating the WWE’s “wellness policy”.

The Brit, from Norwich, then had to undergo neck surgery in October, only to hit by the sex tape leak in March, 2017.

Returning to WWE in November that year with new faction Absolution, she then suffered another injury a little over a month later – which ended her career.

Paige said: "First and foremost, that was always my passion, I wanted to wrestle, but unfortunately it took me down a road that I can't do that anymore.”

She added: "I was at rock bottom for a year and a half – and the people who got me out of my rut were my fans.

"They were just like 'I know you can get out of this, you're stronger than what you feel right now, I know you can make a comeback’.

“It just inspired me like 'you're right, why do I feel like I'm giving up right now?’.”

Paige added Edge helped her come to terms with her sudden retirement – with the 11-time world champion having to step away from his career due to spinal stenosis.

She said: "He told me 'I promise you after you make this retirement speech you will have so much weight off your shoulders and you will feel so much better’.”

Paige officially retired on the Raw after WrestleMania 34 – and now appears weekly as the general manager of SmackDown Live.

She is a two-time Divas Champion and is regarded as one of the forerunners of WWE’s renewed focus on female wrestling – the Women’s Revolution.
