As many of you know by now, multiple WWE Superstars have suspended their Twitch accounts due to WWE’s new third-party policy. Paige has been very outspoken about the new policy and previously claimed she had no plans to stop streaming despite being a WWE employee.
During the middle of a Twitch stream on Thursday night, Paige was talking about horror films when several viewers started sending her messages that multiple WWE Superstars, including AJ Styles, Cesaro, and Mia Yim had all suspended their Twitch accounts. She was clearly taken aback by the situation and addressed it with her fans, saying,
“You guys. We have to make this — You guys. There may be a time where I have to stop streaming. So, I think just in case I walk away, I have to walk away, let’s make these next two streams crazy …. I have to go off. If I have to leave, we have to make today and Saturday f**king crazy before I have to leave. Because it might have to come to that.”
She then received a text from someone and began texting back and forth with them, walking past her green screen out of view. When she returned, she appeared upset and continued texting and walking off and on camera. When she came back, she said,
“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**king tired, man. I broke my f**king neck twice — twice — for this company. Over f**king worked. I broke my f**king neck twice for this company … All I wanted was to — they don’t realize that this community isn’t just about f**king subs. It isn’t about that. We built a wonderful community, a wonderful f**king 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**ked. 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**king void that I lost with wrestling. A huge f**king void. I couldn’t wrestle anymore, something I lived, breathed, f**king s**t wrestling 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.
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**king 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**king ass.”
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**king relationship, dude. And that’s the only thing I could f**king do. See, people think I should be thankful that I still have a f**king job, right? And I am, but it doesn’t mean I should be treated like f**king sh*t.”
Paige continued streaming for several hours following the text messages she received. There is no word on if the texts came from WWE or someone else but she clearly wasn’t happy. At one point, she said, “I’m gonna keep streaming, we’ll see how that goes.” She said she loves WWE but doesn’t agree with what they are doing and doesn’t want people dragging the company or the talent there. She said she knows it’s a business decision and not a personal one, but she doesn’t agree with it.
