The in-ring future of new AEW star Saraya is apparently now down to the decision of an AEW official according to a new report.
Saraya’s blockbuster debut for All Elite Wrestling left many shocked, as she came to the aid of Athena and Toni Storm while they were being attacked by Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter, and Rebel at Dynamite Grand Slam. Although she refrained from getting physical with Baker and her squad, the former Paige left enough of an impression.
Nobody is certain as to what Saraya’s role will be in the company but the ex-WWE star has not competed in the ring since suffering a serious neck injury during a live event match at the end of 2017.
The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer has noted that whether or not Saraya can compete in an AEW ring comes down to the decision of company doctor, Michael Sampson:
“Saraya will be making a statement on Wednesday which would likely talk about her AEW direction. If she will wrestle or not would depend on Dr. Michael Sampson and his ruling about what she can and can’t do physically.”
Following the end of her in-ring career, the former WWE Divas Champion took on roles as SmackDown General Manager and as a manager for the likes of The Kabuki Warriors.
