WWE NXT UK star Toni Storm deleted all of her social media accounts Wednesday.

According to Marc Middleton of WrestlingInc.com, Storm was the victim of a hack that resulted in nude photos of the reigning Mae Young Classic winner being leaked on the internet.

WWE Superstar Paige was the victim of a similar situation in 2017, and she offered some words of encouragement to Storm:

PAIGE @RealPaigeWWE

#WeSupportToniStorm from someone that has experienced the same thing I strongly support you girl. It’s gonna be hard and people are gonna be mean because they don’t understand. But you’re a strong, talented woman. You’ll get through this. Your future is too bright to be dimmed.

NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo also expressed his support for the rising star:

Mauro Ranallo @mauroranallo

Toni Storm is an amazing performer and more importantly, a good person. I am sickened by what she has had to endure. The harrassment and invasion of privacy in our society needs to stop. NOW! #WeSupportToni

The 23-year-old Storm is a New Zealand native who is widely recognized as one of the most promising female performers the business has ever seen.

She impressed throughout the Mae Young Classic and is now a key figure on the recently launched NXT UK brand.

While Storm lost to Rhea Ripley in the finals of a tournament to crown the first NXT UK Women's champion, Storm will have her shot at redemption when they clash at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool on Jan. 12.
