AEW Star Didn’t Expect To Wrestle When Signing With The Promotion AEW

Saraya has now commented on her return to the ring, noting that she didn’t expect to wrestle again when she signed with AEW.

The former WWE Divas Champion made her AEW debut in September 2021. She returned to the ring that November at Full Gear 2022, defeating Britt Baker in her first match in five years.

Speaking on Wilde On, Saraya noted that she thought she’d be serving in a non-wrestling role when she first joined AEW.

Recalling her WWE departure, AEW debut, and return to the ring, she said:

“I was really happy and then me and WWE parted ways, and then I get a call from Hunter being like, ‘What happened? Did you want to leave or did they ask you to leave?’

“I was like, ‘That’s surprising that you don’t know about this.’ But no, Vince didn’t want to renew my contract.

“It was just awesome that (AEW) brought me in. Maybe I was going to be a general manager, maybe a producer.

“I was going to be doing something there, but I don’t know what. Definitely not wrestling because I thought, ‘No way,’ right.”

Saraya previously confirmed that she was cleared by AEW doctors on October 31, 2022.
