WWE superstar Paige arguably has one of the biggest twitch channels out of all the superstars that stream on the Amazon-owned platform, so she did not hold back when venting about her anger and frustrations with WWE implementing new policies regarding Twitch, which resulted in a number of superstar-owned channels being taken down.
Paige said, during a recent live stream, that she “cannot deal with this company anymore” following WWE suspending accounts on twitch, such as the channels for Aj Styles, Mia Yim, and Cesaro, among others.
“There may be a time where I have to stop streaming” Paige said (h/t Fightful). “I’ll have to walk away. If I have to leave, we have to make today and Saturday fucking crazy. I’ve honestly gotten to the point where I cannot deal with this company anymore. Now I have to make a very important decision. I’m fucking tired, man. I broke my fucking neck twice, twice for this company. Over fucking worked. I broke my fucking neck twice for this company. They don’t realize that this community isn’t about subs.”
“We build a community and 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 because my neck is fucked. My whole dreams got taken away. I had to have something that fulfilled that huge fucking void that I lost with wrestling,” she continued. “I couldn’t wrestle anymore, something I lived and breathed since I was a fetus, and it got ripped away from me. I had to find something that I could fill a little bit of that and Twitch was a wonderful thing for me. It’s such a wonderful place for me.”
“I understand if they’re like, ‘you’re wrestling every day and doing shows every day,’ but I’m an injured wrestler. I get used for media stuff, sometimes, but at the end of the day, I’m in my house going fucking crazy and I need something to keep me sane,” Paige added. “Twitch was my escape. Right now, I’m just sitting on my fucking ass. People think I should be thankful that I still have a fucking job, and I am, but it doesn’t mean I should be treated like fucking shit. I had my neck taken away from me twice. You can’t take away my Twitch too. I’m gonna keep streaming, we’ll see how that goes.”
