There’s a big one. There are multiple ways to change things up in wrestling and one of the best ways is to have someone make a surprise debut. Having someone show up out of nowhere can make for a great moment. It can be difficult to figure out a way to bring in someone for such a moment but AEW has managed to pull it off with a former major WWE star.
Saraya, formerly known as Paige, made her AEW debut this week at AEW Grand Slam. Following Toni Storm retaining her Interim AEW Women’s Title, Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Serena Deeb attacked her. Saraya made the save and invited all of them for a fight but no one accepted. Saraya did not get physical and it is not clear if she will have a match, as she was forced to retire from the ring due to neck injuries.
Opinion: That’s a major surprise and it worked as the kind of moment AEW was hoping to have. Saraya is a name that had been rumored for AEW for a long time but it was hard to imagine it actually happening. I’d like to believe she is just there as a manager rather than a wrestler as a neck is something you don’t mess around with, but odds are she will be getting back in the ring one way or another.
What do you think of Saraya’s debut? Do you want her to wrestle in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
