While other WWE talents have put their third-party streams on hold, Paige isn't joining them.
The retired former Divas champion (who has been tweeting about unionization in recent times) spoke candidly during a stream on Saturday. She thanked fans for their support during this ongoing issue between WWE and its "independent contractors", and has vowed to keep her stream going.
“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,” Paige said. “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."
Regarding the issue of WWE demanding that their performers cease with third-party media involvement, Paige feels she's doing the right thing, and hopes that others can see that.
“I'm always one that speaks my mind," she added. "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.”
