Aliyah Sets Unique Goal For Her WWE Career

Aliyah became the holder of a WWE record on last week’s (January 14) episode of SmackDown, when she pinned Natalya in 3.17 seconds to earn the record for fastest victory in WWE history.

However, that isn’t the only record that Aliyah hopes to hold in WWE. Speaking with Denise Salcedo, Aliyah discussed her goals for 2022.

Aliyah set a unique goal for her WWE career, saying that she hopes to wrestle at next month’s Elimination Chamber event, as it would make her the first Arab woman to wrestle in the Middle East.

She said:

“We’re heading to Saudi for Elimination Chamber, and no matches have really been announced. It would be an honor to be the first-ever Arab female superstar to perform in the Middle East. That’s always been a huge goal of mine.”

Aliyah is also set to take part in her first Royal Rumble match next weekend. She discussed the match, and how she feels heading into it.

She said:

“Oh my goodness, it feels incredible. Because growing up, I used to watch Lita, I used to watch Mickie James, I used to watch the Bellas, you know what I mean? So it’s just so cool. Then, on one hand, I get to see all these legends, and then, on the other hand, I look to my right and I’ll see Liv Morgan, whose been my best friend forever. I’m just so excited, it’s going to be a great time and I’m ready to go in there and kick ass and win.

“It’s going a crazy amazing dynamic, my favorite part about the Rumble is just not knowing who is going to come out next. There’s still a bunch of people that haven’t even been announced, so just the surprise within that I am so excited for. That’s always been my favorite part.”

NXT star Cora Jade was also asked about the Royal Rumble, where she admitted that she would ‘love’ to be in the match.
