The following is an excerpt from an article on former WWE Diva Debra from the Tuscaloosa News:
“I had this dream life where I was married to Stone Cold Steve Austin, I’m the top girl in wrestling, I live in this big old, $1.5 million home and it’s happening to me,” she said. “It was like the third time he hit me and I got really tired of trying to cover up my face on TV and just said, ‘You do it one more time, that’s it.’ ”
She researched the issue of domestic violence, and became afraid the abuse would only get worse if she did not leave Austin.
“I remember my sister Lisa goes, ‘Debra, why don’t you just go ahead and start planning your funeral because I won’t be in any shape to plan it,’ ”
she said. “So then I had to take charge of my own life.”
