Saraya (Paige): ‘I Am Not Going To AEW Anytime Soon’

Former WWE Superstar Paige, now known by her real name Saraya, recently spoke about numerous topics on her ‘Turning The Page’ stage show at Starrcast.

Among them was being asked about going to AEW amid her July 7 departure from WWE. She said, “I’m in the middle of writing a book right now, which I’m really excited about. We got a book, it’s going to be another year before it officially comes out. We’re in the middle of writing that. We’re doing other things, but I’m not allowed to say anything right now. It’s non-wrestling related, sorry guys. I’m not going to be going to AEW anytime soon. AEW seems great. I love AEW. I would love to face Britt Baker one day if the time is right, that would be awesome.”

Paige has not competed in nearly five years. She last entered the ring on December 27, 2017 when she teamed with Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville against Bayley, Mickie James, and Sasha Banks. She received an ugly kick to the upper neck area which led to the injury she still suffers from today.

She was asked to reflect on that neck injury, to which she said “I already knew once my neck got kicked in the middle of the live event match, once I went down, I was like, ‘This is it, this is the end of my career.’ I couldn’t feel my body. I lost control of my arms, my legs, then I’m just laying there and looking up at the referee like, ‘I can’t feel my body, I’m paralyzed right now.’ He threw up the X and I look at poor Sasha in the corner and she’s like, ‘I’m so sorry.’ If it wasn’t you, it would have been someone else.”

Despite the injury, there are no hard feelings between Banks and Saraya. You can see more about this show and other Starrcast events here.
