As you will have no doubt seen by now, Saraya, formerly known as Paige in WWE, made her shock AEW debut during last night’s (September 21) AEW Dynamite Grand Slam show at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The reaction to her debut was deafening, and now Saraya herself has had the chance to thank fans for welcoming her back into the world of wrestling.
Taking to Twitter, she said:
Fucking WOW! Absolutely blown away by the pop in the stadium and the reception outside of it. Been a long journey. Couldn’t be happier to be in @AEW thank you to everyone! and thank you to my babe @RonnieRadke for letting me use his song Zombified! LFG!! ❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/9czsEWUcot

As we speculated earlier, it does look like she will be an active member of the women’s roster, something some people have understandably doubted given she hasn’t wrestled since retiring from in-ring competition several years ago.
She is instantly one of the company’s biggest stars, and hopefully her debut will be a huge boost to the AEW Women’s division.
