Paige was forced to retire from in-ring competition in 2017 after she was kicked from behind during a WWE house show. She kept herself busy with a variety of roles afterwards.
The first-ever NXT Women’s Champion departed from the company back in July after WWE decided not to renew her contract for some reason. After waiting a couple of months, Paige decided to dominate headlines.
This is because she made her debut during AEW Grand Slam, much to the shock of the world. While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that he believes Saraya was very happy after her AEW debut.
“Arthur Ashe Stadium, nice crowd, big pop. You could tell she was happy, you know, that smile was just radiating through the arena. So yeah man, I’m glad to see her back. Me personally, Paige has always been one of my favorites. She’s always been that chick, so I’m just glad to see her back seriously.”
WWE also wanted to bring back Paige after Triple H took over. We’ll have to see what Saraya will have to say on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite.
