Saraya, formerly known as Paige has given a major update on her wrestling future and whether she will be heading to AEW.
On July 7th Paige’s contract with WWE expired, meaning that she was a free agent for the first time in over a decade.
This immediately led to speculation that she would be following the likes of Athena and Toni Storm to AEW. While the British star was forced to retire in 2018 due to a serious neck injury, she has repeatedly stated her desire to return to the ring.
During an appearance at Starrcast V in a special panel with Brian Zane, Saraya was asked about whether fans can expect to see her in AEW. The star admitted that while you “never know,” she won’t be joining Tony Khan’s promotion any time soon.
“I’m not going to be going to AEW any time soon. So that’s everyone usually tweets ‘How’s your neck? When are you going to AEW?’ And I’m like, AEW seems great. I love AEW, I would love to face Britt Baker one day if the time was right that would be awesome. All my friends are there now, so you never know.”
Fan expectation went into overdrive in the run up to Starrcast after former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker admitted that she would love to face the former NXT Women’s Champion. In response, Saraya simply wrote “sign me up” on social media.
