Peyton Royce says woking in WWE took a toll on her mental health. Royce was released last month as part of WWE’s budget cuts.
Peyton Royce is a one time WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion with Billie Kay. Together, they were known as the IIconics and the future seemed bright for both of them. Even moreso for Royce who, according to rumors, was being geared for a singles push.
In the end, nothing came off it and both of them were surprisingly released from the promotion last year after Wrestlemania. The duo now have a podcast together titled, Off Her Chops. The two spoke about their mental health and struggles with anxiety while working with the WWE on their first episode.
Peyton Royce says woking in WWE took a toll on her mental health
Royce revealed that she would get physically inside an airport and lamented the lack of time she had for herself and her loved ones.
“I would get physically ill inside of an airport, put me on a plane getting to the next town. Remember one time we had to pull the car over on the highway? I thought I was gonna throw up. I feel like it just got worse every week. If it’s for leisure, sure. The airport is great. Love flying. Give me a window seat, so I don’t vomit all over myself, but I didn’t know when it was.”
” It was just different when it was for work for some reason. I knew every time I got on a plane, I wouldn’t be back for five days and then when I got home, I would only have two nights at home and in that time, I would have to do all my washing, rearrange my bag, run my errands, and I would maybe have half a day to myself to spend with my then-fiance and my dogs and it was just — it really took its toll on my mental health personally.”
