Have nude photos of NXT’s Peyton Royce leaked online?
After several photos and videos depicting Paige in highly sexual situations surfaced online due to hackers, rumors began to swirl that this scandal involved other women in the wrestling world.
It all began on March 17, 2017, when explicit photos and videos of Paige emerged online.
Later that day, Paige said personal photos belonging to her got stolen and shared without her consent.
“Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent,” Paige said in a statement on Twitter.
In the days after the leak, explicit material ranging from X-rated videos to topless bathroom selfies featuring other current or former WWE Superstars began to emerge online.
WWE Superstar Summer Rae is one, while nude images of former WWE Superstars Maria Kanellis, Victoria, Kaitlyn, and Melina Perez also leaked online — Kanellis returned to WWE in June 2017 while Summer Rae got released the following October.
These leaks are part of a large hacking scandal that has resulted in personal photos of celebrities being stolen and distributed online.
A few days earlier, intimate photos of actresses Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried began spreading on the dark corners of the internet. The leak — dubbed “The Fappening 2.0” in reference to a similar celebrity hacking scandal from 2014 — has targeted several other famous names.
In the midst of the scandal, rumors spread that hackers had targeted other women in wrestling and more material was forthcoming.
“There have been claims that others will follow,” Dave Meltzer said in his report on the scandal in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The claim turned out correct as nude photos of WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair leaked online in May 2017.
“Private photos of mine were stolen and shared publicly without my consent,” Flair said in a statement on Twitter. “These images must be removed from the Internet immediately.”
The photos show Flair taking several nude selfies in front of a mirror with her cell phone, which got fitted with a WWE-branded case.
Naturally, this has wrestling fans wondering if Royce is one of the leak victims.
While it seems possible that nude photos of Royce could leak online since she’s not exactly shy about showing some skin, it hasn’t happened … yet.
