Saraya was left with no choice but to retire from in-ring competition in 2017 after a career-ending neck injury. Following her release from WWE, Saraya ended up in AEW and has already become a huge deal there. Her debut promo was also critiqued for seemingly taking a shot at Triple H, so Saraya finally decided to clarify her comments recently.

Saraya made her All Elite Wrestling debut during ‘Dynamite: Grand Slam. The week after that, she cut a promo where she declared AEW as her home. However, Saraya caused some controversy online after she said, ”It’s so good to have a boss to actually finally listen to me.”

Naturally, many people started thinking she was talking about Triple H and blasted her for the same. While speaking on Renee Paquette’s The Sessions podcast, Saraya clarified her promo and made it clear that she was not talking about Triple H whatsoever.

“I wish I didn’t even say ‘The Boss’ thing. I feel like they got confused with Triple H, and Triple H has always been a fantastic boss to me.”


“Like I really enjoyed my time in ‘NXT,’ I always had the best matches at ‘NXT,’ too. I had so much fun there, and he always did listen to me. So I feel like people got a little confused with that.”

“And I was just trying to do character stuff. It wasn’t anything personal, you know. People already know, when I do interviews, I talk nothing but positivity about WWE and my time there, and I have nothing against them.”

Saraya is set to square off against Britt Baker at AEW Full Gear on November 19th. We will have to wait and see whether she will end up winning her in-ring debut match or not. If anything, odds are those in WWE will pay attention to what she is able to do while wishing her the best in the process.
