Saraya (Paige) shocked the wrestling industry when she showed up in AEW on the Sept. 21 episode of Dynamite Grand Slam.
Her appearance was instantly felt as the heels that were in the ring including Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter, and Serena Deeb retreated while the Interim AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm and Athena embraced the former Divas Champion. It was confirmed by Tony Khan on social media immediately afterward that Saraya is now All Elite.
When Saraya made her debut she did not get physical which led to speculation on if she is cleared to compete or not. Earlier today, a report from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated that she was not cleared to compete but she would like to be. Saraya has not wrestled since 2017 due to her neck injuries.
“We were told that she had not been cleared as of very recently, which would explain not touching anyone, but would like to be cleared,” Meltzer wrote, noting that she is refereeing for her family’s WAW promotion in a few weeks.
Saraya has responded to the report by posting the following on her Twitter –
“Ignore the dirt sheet click bait. See ya Wednesday. #AEWDynamite”
