Saraya, formerly Paige, made her AEW debut last night by coming out to save AEW Interim Women’s World Champion Toni Storm and Athena from Britt Baker, Serena Deeb, and Jamie Hayter after the Fatal 4 Way match that saw Storm retain her title. Now everyone is talking about her music, along with so much more.
Saraya went to Twitter and commented on her surprise debut. She also thanked her boyfriend, singer Ronnie Radke of Falling In Reverse, for letting her use his “Zombified” song as her entrance theme.
“F*cking WOW! Absolutely blown away by the pop in the stadium and the reception outside of it. Been a long journey. Couldn’t be happier to be in @AEW thank you to everyone! [face holding back tears emoji x 2] and thank you to my babe @RonnieRadke for letting me use his song Zombified! LFG!! [heart emoji x 2],” she wrote.
Saraya also tweeted a photo from this past Wednesday to show she was disguised to keep her AEW debut a secret. There’s no word yet on if Saraya will be wrestling for AEW, but it was implied a match with Baker is rumored.
Saraya left WWE in early July after the company chose not to re-sign her. She has not wrestled since December 2017 after suffering a neck injury at a WWE live event, which led to her retirement from in-ring action a few months later. Saraya has done some non-wrestling work for WWE since then, but it was reported on Wednesday afternoon that AEW had reached out to her. It was also reported that the new WWE regime may be interested in having her back, but she then debuted for AEW just hours later.
You can see Saraya’s aforementioned tweets and the “Zombified” song below. Welcome to AEW, Saraya.
