However, Paige, who has a movie "Fighting With My Family" being released about her journey to WWE, spoke to The New York Post where she revealed just how she was able to overcome this hard situation. In that interview, Paige described how she felt after the tape was leaked and what it meant for her career. "I felt so rock bottom".

In 2017, Paige - whose real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis - had private intimate videos posted online by hackers, a traumatic incident that left her experiencing stress-induced anorexia and alopecia, according to the New York Post. Paige said she went on a downward spiral into depression after the leaks, describing it as "rock bottom". It makes me feel really good, because that was my aim for when I came over here: "I just wanted to change the perception of how women were looked at in general, and I thought me and couple of others kind of did that", said Paige.

But, as she hinted it in her episode of the WWE Chronicle documentary series, Paige began to turn things around after a chance encounter with a young fan.

She continued to the outlet: "I thought, what am I doing?" "Of course, she didn't have the internet and thought I was the most lovely and most successful woman in the world", she said "It opened my eyes to so many things". I need to be successful for her.

Fighting With My Family hits theaters on February 22.
