Saraya shares doctor’s note saying she’s cleared to wrestle, responds to criticism
Saraya announced on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite that she has been medically cleared to wrestle and will take on Britt Bakker in her first match since December 2017 at AEW Full Gear later this month.
Following the show, the former Paige took to Twitter to reveal a letter from her doctor confirming that she has been cleared to wrestle with no restrictions. It reads, “To Whom It May Concern: Patient is cleared to wrestle with no restrictions.”
Dr. Robert Watkins Jr., an orthopedic surgeon at Watkins Spine in Marina Del Rey, California, signed the letter.
Saraya captioned the post with, “Printed and framed this.” She asked fans for names for her moves, “I need new names for my moves… sh**. Okay maybe ‘knight’ related names?”

Saraya later applauded AEW for having three women’s matches on the Full Gear card, including her bout, AEW Interim World Women’s Champion Toni Storm vs. Jamie Hayter, and AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill vs. Nyla Rose.
Saraya also responded to criticism over the doctor’s note by writing, “Omg. The address. Number. Name of dr is on there. I ASKED for that note. So I can frame it and post it and he was kind of enough to do it. The 6 page dictation he wrote with a full break down, analysis and conclusion was awesome I just wanted to see that ONE sentence. For me. [shushing face emoji]”
