Saraya was Paige in WWE, but she was left with no choice but to retire from in-ring competition in 2017 and that brought about a lot of changes in general. She remained relevant in other roles for years after that, but she never wrestled again. Britt Baker recently said that Saraya is not cleared and she will not wrestle in AEW.
According to Dr. Britt Baker, DMD, Saraya is not cleared to wrestle and won’t compete for AEW. In a backstage interview, Baker stated that since Saraya is unable to wrestle, she wants to move on from her. Excalibur and Tony Schiavone then inquired as to the identities of those physicians.

This is certainly related to the storyline, and Saraya vs. Baker appears to be an upcoming event. According to last week’s Fightful article, Saraya signed a three-year contract worth a considerable sum of money. The money she is receiving suggests that she will compete in matches.
When Saraya made her Dynamite debut, Dave Meltzer previously stated that she had not yet received clearance but anticipated shortly entering the ring. Check out the snippet from Britt Baker’s interview in the video below.
