After her private photos were leaked, WWE star Paige said there were days when she wanted to "physically harm myself."
"Not only for what millions was telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake," she wrote in a statement released on Twitter on Monday night.
Paige, a two-time Divas champion who has been sidelined following neck surgery, acknowledged last week that "personal and private photos of mine were stolen" and shared without her consent. In Monday night's tweet, she spoke about the harm and the hurt the incident brought.
"How many people have to suffer because of the Internet and the cowards beyond the keyboard … We wanna bring those people to justice and also take down the ones who are trolls, for lack of a better term," she wrote.
She wrote that she made a "big mistake. Huge," by trusting someone who took advantage of a young girl years earlier.
"The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is going to leave me' 'my family will disown me' but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am," she wrote.

Paige refers to Alberto El Patron – the former Alberto Del Rio – as her husband. El Patron announced Monday on Instagram that the two are getting married Wednesday.
She has received huge amounts of support from fans using the #IStandWithPaige hashtag as well as others in the wrestling business.
