Saraya says she feels great health-wise but she’s not looking to step back into the squared circle unless it’s for a major moment.
During an appearance on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, the former Paige spoke about her current health as well as the fact that she sometimes teases making an in-ring return. Saraya said she’s feeling fantastic and would entertain doing promos, but she’s not going to work a match unless it’s for a big moment.
“I feel fantastic, I really do feel fantastic. I still have that mental block of like, ‘Oh my God, if I was to get in the ring, what if?’ If I was to have to be in the ring, it would be for a really big moment, to wrestle. Like I’ll do promos here and there, for big companies, but to actually wrestle, it would have to be a really big moment. I would love to face Sasha [Banks] again, for real. Because, like, it ended the way it did.”
After Renee joked that no one knows Banks’ status, Saraya said that it feels like everyone will ‘want to come home’ now that Triple H is running things in WWE. The pair also joked about Saraya having more retirement matches than Ric Flair, but Paquette said it would be a great moment if Saraya actually did get the chance to wrestle one more time and close her career on her terms.
“I think so too. I think it’d be really special,” Saraya said. “We’ll see, though.”
Saraya spoke to the media at Starrcast about her health and potentially returning to the ring. WrestleZone’s Bill Pritchard asked her if she’d learned anything about her health in response to pursuing that goal, and she noted that she has been trying to strengthen her neck muscles in order to feel it out.
“I’m a psychopath with health now, especially like my boyfriend is also asked a psychopath with health too, so he just makes it easier to stay on a healthy path,” said Saraya. “But yeah I just learned how to really take care of my body and my mind and stuff like that. When it comes to my neck, I put this weight thing on my head, it’s really stupid but it’s to built up your neck muscles and stuff like that. So I’m trying to build it up just to see how it is.”
