Saraya (Paige) is All Elite.
During Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite ‘Grand Slam’, the former WWE Divas Champion made her debut following a Fatal-4 Way Match for the AEW Women’s Championship that featured Toni Storm, Serena Deeb, Athena, and Dr. Britt Baker.
As Britt Baker, Rebel, and Jamie Hayter were attacking Toni Storm and Athena after the match, Saraya came out to the ring and ran everyone off. She then had a staredown with Britt Baker and the rest of the women in the ring.
AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter following the segment to announce that Saraya is officially All Elite.
Saraya departed WWE back in July after her contract expired and the company decided not to renew it.
According to a report from Fightful, the company reached out to Saraya after she departed WWE back in July. Fightful Select report also suggested that WWE had expressed interest in hiring Saraya.
Following “Dynamite,” Saraya took to Twitter to discuss the live reaction to her debut and revealed who allowed her to use the theme song she came to the ring to: “F WOW! Absolutely blown away by the pop in the stadium and the reception outside of it. Been a long journey. Couldn’t be happier to be in @AEW thank you to everyone! and thank you to my babe @RonnieRadke for letting me use his song Zombified! LFG!! ❤️❤️”
It’s typical for wrestlers who plan to make a surprise debut to stay hidden beforehand. Saraya tweeted a photo of the outfit she wore yesterday, stating: Thanks @Lizzy_Cupcake for capturing me in my prime hiding attire last night 😂”
