Saraya has recently addressed her divisive first promo in AEW, admitting that she may have “s**t the bed a little bit”.
The former Paige’s run in WWE was a rollercoaster ride to say the least, with numerous highs and lows throughout her 11-year stint with the company.
Saraya was forced to retire from in-ring competition in 2018 after a severe neck injury, but still made sporadic appearances for WWE in a variety of roles before her release in July 2022.
The Anti-Diva then showed up in AEW, making her debut for the promotion at Grand Slam to a thunderous reception.
The following week, Saraya cut an in-ring promo that received a mixed response from fans, as she recently discussed during an appearance on ‘Talk Is Jericho’:
“I hadn’t wrestled in years, but I hadn’t been in the wrestling ring actually just doing a promo. So my promo last week, I was not happy with, I feel like I sh*t the bed a little bit. But I was so consumed with nerves because I haven’t been in the ring for so long. And in front of wrestling fans.”
Saraya also commented on the backlash she received from fans online after the promo:
“So everyone was happy the first week and then they realised like I was actually here and I was staying here. And they just turned against me and I was like what is happening. I feel like I’m just like dodging bullets from all these like, crazy fans. But at the same time, I’m like, it’s online. It’s not real.”
Saraya was notable by her absence on this past Wednesday’s Dynamite, but recently took to Twitter to reveal why she missed the show.
