The wrestling world has been getting behind Mae Young Classic winner Toni Storm after a series of inappropriate photos and videos of her were leaked online– an act which is far too common for women in the wrestling industry.
Another victim of the leaks is former SmackDown General Manager Paige. Paige, of course, had several individual leaks. All of these leaks contained photos and videos that were inappropriate and for her own personal use- not for others to see or have access to, much the same as Storm herself in this situation.
Storm has already deleted her social media accounts after going on a blocking spree- the pain obvious to thousands of fans across social media. In Paige’s case, she had revealed on the “Chasing Glory” podcast with Lilian Garcia that she had contemplated suicide after that content had been leaked- and while Storm is a different woman, the devastation could have severe ramifications for the promising, young wrestler.
“I was so sad to the point I was contemplating suicide. I was on the floor, I was so low. I got so skinny I ended up collapsing with exhaustion in [a] hospital in England. They told me at the time it was kind of like stress-induced anorexia.”
Following the supportive hashtags on social media, Paige took to her Twitter account to tell the NXT UK star that she has experienced what Storm has, and despite any rude comments left to her, she will get through this. Check the tweet out below:
With Storm’s social media now gone, it remains to be seen how or if the promising Superstar does respond to the support, or if she will remain off social media moving forward.
