Saraya-Jade Bevis, known as Paige, reflects on the dark periods following private content leak

In a poignant revelation, ex-WWE star Saraya-Jade Bevis, famously known as Paige, disclosed the profound impact of a harrowing incident involving the leak of her private images and videos, admitting that it led her to a dark place where she ‘didn’t really want to be alive anymore.’

The 31-year-old, forced to retire from WWE in 2018 due to an injury, candidly shared the distressing chapter of her life during an interview. The incident occurred one year before her retirement when explicit photos and videos surfaced online, exposing her to immense vulnerability and public scrutiny.

Recalling the ordeal on Renee Paquette’s podcast, The Sessions, Bevis described the moment she first learned about the leak in San Antonio as ‘just the most awful moment’ of her life. At the time, she was battling substance abuse issues with cocaine and alcohol, amplifying the impact of the distressing situation.

Bevis vividly recounted the emotional turmoil she experienced, running away from her residence in shock and hiding in a bush out of fear that people would recognize her. The leak transpired when she was just 19 years old, and it coincided with a period of personal struggles, making her feel ‘stupid’ and ’embarrassed.’

In her own words, Bevis expressed the profound toll the incident took on her mental health, saying, “I didn’t really want to be alive anymore, dude.” She reflected on feeling ‘so f**king sad’ and the dread of facing disappointment from her father, who she believed would be ‘disappointed’ with her.

Hiding in the bush, she made a crucial call to her father, apologizing and anticipating his disappointment. To her surprise, her father’s response was a beacon of support, reminding her that mistakes happen, and he was still proud of her. This conversation, coupled with a similar supportive reaction from her brother, played a pivotal role in shifting her perspective and helping her navigate through the challenging times.

Paige’s candid disclosure sheds light on the emotional toll of privacy invasion and cyberbullying, emphasizing the importance of empathy and understanding in such situations.
