Taking to her Twitch stream last night, Paige revealed that she is going to continue streaming on the platform, despite the fact that other WWE stars have reportedly been made to suspend their accounts by the company.
This comes after Paige got rather emotional and broke down into tears on a stream earlier this week, noting that she “cannot deal with” WWE anymore following the new ruling. You can read more about that by clicking here.
Taking to her stream last night, the former Divas Champion thanked fans for their support and noted that because she doesn’t have a lot going on at the moment, she is going to continue streaming on Twitch:
“The fact that you guys are just so supportive of all of us and me, in general, is like, holy crap, this is wonderful and made me feel so much happier and so much better. So, yeah, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing because, you know, I don’t have a lot going on, you guys. I really don’t. I feel really happy today because of all the support that was given. I don’t have a lot going on. So this is really special to me. I’m always one that speaks my mind. It’s kind of bittersweet because I can get in trouble for being honest and having an opinion or it can be something very positive where I helped a lot of people.
“I like to stand up for what is right. For not just me, but for everybody. I think it’s very important to always carry yourself in a certain regard. I just want to carry myself in a way where people can look at me one day and say, ‘wow, she wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself.’ I just feel like that is more of a role model. Because, obviously, I did some stupid stuff oh, I went through a crazy stage in my life for a couple of years but how I came out of that, I feel like I did a good job and I want to continue trying to be a role model for people and show people that you can say and do whatever you want if it’s in the right way.“
At this time, it is unclear whether WWE has allowed Paige to stream on Twitch because she isn’t on TV like the rest of the active roster, or if she is just going to continue streaming in spite of the company’s wishes.
This comes after it was reported that several people within WWE have actually reached out to former US Presidential candidate Andrew Yang over the Twitch ban. You can also read more about that by clicking here.
