WWE star Paige has opened up about the abuse she suffered during a previous relationship. She did not name who she was referring to.
Speaking on GAW TV, Paige said:
“People victim-blame too which is crazy. I’ve never openly talked about my ex which is very out there but I’ve never talked about it. It was very obvious what was happening and very obvious what I went through, all that stuff. In the beginning, you fight back with that kind of stuff. You’re fighting back with this person, like I’m not going to take this s**t from this person and it’s not how I got brought up.
“It becomes a cycle, where if you fight back it just gets worse. You go through a stage where it’s once every couple weeks, to once a week, to every other day, to nearly every single day where something is happening to you. And it’s not just for an hour, it’s for hours. It’s up to 6-7 hours a day where you’re literally trapped in a certain room getting your ass beat every couple of minutes and [he is] doing all these crazy things to you. I never thought I’d be in that position in my life just because of the way I got brought up. I never thought that, but even the strongest people, I feel like that happens to and you should never feel bad about it.
“That’s another thing about the internet, is again, they victim blame. Even if I don’t say anything, they’d be like, ‘It’s probably your fault and here A,B, and C reasons why…’ or just something like ‘oh that never happened, it was all your imagination’ and I’m not even saying it! I’ve never spoken about it in any context, any podcasts or any interviews, I always stayed away from it but now it’s completely out there. I’m like, ‘why am I shying away from this? Why am I not brave enough to talk about it?’
“I’ll never say his name again because like he’s Voldemort to me and he doesn’t deserve [me saying it]. It’s karma, whatever is happening to him, karma is a real thing. You put out what you receive and right now he’s receiving what he’s put out.”
It is well known that Paige was in a relationship with multi-time WWE World Champion Alberto Del Rio several years ago.
Del Rio, real name José Alberto Rodríguez Chucuan, has a trial date set for January 25, 2021 regarding four charges of sexual assault and one charge of aggravated kidnapping from an arrest in May.
