The relationship between Paige and Alberto Del Rio was the talk of the town while it lasted. Needless to say, the two did not end things in the best way which resulted in the former WWE Champion lash out on Paige in a recent Instagram post. The SmackDown General manager was asked about the same by Lillian Garcia on Chasing Glory with Lillian Garcia.
Paige claimed that she did not respond to the aggressive rant and wishes him all the happiness in the world while wishing that he would leave him alone. Paige said:
“I chose not to reply to that at the second. It hurt my feelings but I didn’t want him to know that it hurt my feelings at that point. It wasn’t like it hurt my feelings in like, ‘Oh, I can’t believe you said that about me.’ It was like… You’re making fun of someone that had mental health issues. Like, who does that? I don’t care — I’m glad that he’s moved on and found someone. I love that. I want him and want his family to be happy. I just want him to leave me alone. So I thought after a year of us not being together, I never expected him to bring me up again. I was just like ‘I’m not even gonna respond to that right now.’ I wish him the best of luck. You don’t make fun of someone who has mental health issues because he knew at that point how depressed and how I was at rock bottom and how I wanted to kill myself. He knew all that stuff, so to throw it out there like that is pretty mean. It’s uncalled for [and] unnecessary. I was like, ‘Am I being bullied right now? I was like what is going on here?’”
Paige went on to discuss the topic at length by stating that she has no clue why Del Rio is aiming jabs after all this time. Paige stated:
“I told my family straight away. I was like, ‘Don’t reply to him. He’s not even worth it.’ Because right now, I’m at the stage of my life where I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and I’m not gonna let someone like him try and bring me down. I get it, maybe he’s not as successful as he wanted to be, I don’t know but, I don’t have time for that. I don’t know if it’s jealousy but I don’t have time for that kind of stuff. It’s immature. He’s 41 years old. Don’t talk like that about a woman first of all, especially on the internet for everyone to see, especially when you’re in the public eye. Just keep your mouth shut. You don’t like me. That’s fine. We haven’t had any contact for over year. It baffles me. Like, ‘What? Just leave me alone.’ It was kind of laughable in the end. I was just like, ‘Come on dude, you look sad.’”
