During her most recent Twitch stream, former Divas Champion broke down while discussing the latest WWE edict on its wrestlers using third-party platforms like Twitch, stating that she “cannot deal with this company anymore”.
It seems like Paige received a message on her phone, which likely alluded to the fact that she will have to stop streaming pretty soon. Shen then broke down into tears and had the following to say:
“I’ve honestly got to the point [where] I cannot deal with this company anymore … So now I have to make a very important decision … I’m f*cking tired, man. I broke my f*cking neck twice — twice — for this company. Over f*cking worked. I broke my f*cking neck twice for this company … All I wanted was to — they don’t realize that this community isn’t just about f*cking subs. It isn’t about that. We built a wonderful community, a wonderful f*cking family where this is an escape for a lot of people, including myself. I can’t wrestle anymore. I was worked so hard in WWE that I can’t wrestle anymore. My neck is f*cked. My whole dreams got taken away from me, dude. And I had to have something that fulfilled even a small part of that huge f*cking void that I lost with wrestling. A huge f*cking void. I couldn’t wrestle anymore, something I lived, breathed, f**king s**t wre4stling since I was a fetus, dude. And it got ripped away from me. And I had to find something that even filled a little bit of that. And Twitch was such a wonderful thing for me. It’s such a wonderful place for me.”
Unlike many of the other WWE stars who have been told to stop streaming, Paige isn’t allowed to wrestle on TV anymore due to serious neck injuries. She noted that this will make the new edict much harder for her:
“And I understand. I understand if they’re like, ‘Hey, if you’re wrestling every day, if you’re doing shows every day, if you’re on TV constantly,’ that’s fine. But I’m a f*cking injured wrestler, I can’t wrestle anymore. I get used for media stuff, sometimes, you know? But at the end of the day, I’m in my f**king house. I’m going f**king crazy, dude. I need something to keep me sane, man. And Twitch was my escape from that, you know? … Right now, I’m just sitting on my f*cking ass.”
The former SmackDown General Manager alluded to the fact that the last few years have been incredibly challenging for her. Here’s exactly what she had to say on the matter:
“I had a terrible couple of years, where I had a tape leaked about me, where I popped a couple of drug tests because I was in an abusive f*cking relationship, dude. And that’s the only thing I could f*cking do. See, people think I should be thankful that I still have a f*cking job, right? And I am, but it doesn’t mean I should be treated like f*cking shit.”
