Saraya is All Elite.
During the 9/21 episode of AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, former WWE Divas Champion, Saraya made her All Elite Wrestling debut.
The debuting star came down to the ring to the aid Interim AEW Women’s World Champion, Toni Storm from the attack of Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D., Serena Deeb, and Jamie Hayter following her (Storm’s) successful title defense over Baker, Deeb, and Athena.

Saraya joined WWE in 2011, where she was a one-time NXT Women’s Champion as well as a two-time WWE Divas Champion. The former Paige would officially retire from in-ring competition during the April 9, 2018 episode of Monday Night RAW but would stay with the company in a multitude of both on and off-screen roles until she allowed her contract to expire, this past July.
AEW President Tony Khan would quickly make it official, as the newest signee received the coveted, official, All Elite graphic.

Saraya’s arrival is just one of many surprises to occur during tonight’s special episode of AEW Dynamite, as Claudio Castagnoli defended the ROH World Title against Chris Jericho and Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee defended their Tag Titles against The Acclaimed’s Max Caster and Anthony Bowens.
