Saraya announces that she’s cleared to compete.
On the November 9 episode of AEW Dynamite, the former Paige announced that she had medical testing, and it confirmed that she is cleared for competition. She then challenged Britt Baker to a match at AEW Full Gear.
Check out a recap of the segment, courtesy our our play-by-play coverage:
Saraya and Britt Baker come to the ring. Saraya announces she’s medically cleared, and she calls AEW her house. Baker describes how she has built that house, while Saraya hasn’t laid a single brick. Baker says Saraya walked away from her house, and AEW doesn’t take walk-ins. Saraya says Baker doesn’t know what it takes to be a star, let alone a superstar. She says she has wrestled all over the world and started revolutions before they were cool. Saraya says she broke her neck for this business, and Baker doesn’t know what it takes to make it. Saraya challenges Baker to a match at AEW Full Gear. Baker goes for a cheap shot, and Paige lays her out. She again says AEW is her house.
