All Elite Wrestling‘s Saraya was a recent guest on INSIGHT with Chris Van Vliet to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked what the biggest difference is between her and the Paige character she portrayed in WWE, Saraya admitted she couldn’t imagine herself being that character anymore.
“Saraya is more mature. That’s definitely a big thing,” Saraya said. “And sober. The thing is, with Paige, she was — I’m trying to explain how she was. First of all, she was this little emo girl teenager, kind of like the anti-teenager phase, and going into Saraya; I can’t imagine myself being that character anymore.
“I would rather be a more elevated version of that character. A more grown-up version of that character. Because I’m not her anymore. She’s the young version of me. Now, I’m the older version. Yeah, that kind of Paige just didn’t give an F about anybody, not even herself. She just cared about — outside of wrestling, partying, and stuff like that. Where me as Saraya, I focus on elevating myself, remaining healthy, mentally being happier.”
The former Paige picked up her first win in All Elite Wrestling last weekend at AEW Full Gear defeating Britt Baker in her first match back in five years.
