Saraya’s WWE career will forever be remembered as legendary for many fans as she paved the way for future female pro wrestlers. Following a 5-year hiatus from in-ring competition, Saraya made her return to the ring during the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view. Saraya also credited Britt Baker for carrying her during AW Full Gear.

At AEW Full Gear, Saraya faced off against Britt Baker in her first match in over 5 years. Unsurprisingly, there was a lot of ring rust on display for Saraya and she somehow managed to beat Britt Baker in the end.

While speaking on the post-show media scrum after Full Gear, Saraya credited Britt Baker for carrying her throughout her feud with Baker as well as the match.

“I got to go home to the UK recently, we did some training there, training with my family is always a plus, that’s where I started. I got to go to Santino Bros in California, Jungle Boy offered me his ring but I didn’t get to go around there. I will go there and ask him to use his ring. I did a lot of training.

I didn’t try to do 100% bumping around until I knew my neck was okay and then it was an everyday thing. I even had a signing and I had to cancel it because I had to focus on this. I was 100% in on this. It did take a lot and I know I am rusty. It’s been five years and I tried to give 110% and I felt like I did that, I gave as much as I could. Working with Britt, she’s a star, an absolute star. She helped me a lot. Long story short, I worked out a lot and I’m going to continue to do so.

“Britt was the first-ever signee here, she has built this division so I totally understand that. I was an outsider coming in, but it was more between me and Britt. It was such a special moment for us two. I’m stepping out of character a little bit here, but I feel with Britt, she really carried me throughout this whole thing.

Truly, she’s an absolute pro. I was rusty when I did the promos and stuff like that. I felt we delivered a really good in-ring promo and the next week she did this beautiful babyface promo, ‘Oh man, this is going to be tough.’ With me and her, there’s no real heel or face, you just cheer for who you want to cheer for. You either cheer for the homegrown talent or you cheer for the girl who comes back from a career-ending injury.”

We will have to wait and see how Saraya will be booked in the coming weeks. Fans are certainly excited to see what Saraya will be able to accomplish in the company.
