Saraya arrived in AEW to a massive babyface pop at the Dynamite Grand Slam television special on September 21, 2022, and immediately put the homegrown stars on notice. Now, she’s finally starting to reveal her intentions.
Saraya was in Toni Storm’s corner for her match against Willow Nightingale on Dynamite tonight. Storm got the win over the beloved babyface. She then joined Saraya in jumping Willow after the match to the shock of everyone in attendance.
#ToniStorm picks up the win, but @Saraya wastes no time in attacking @willowwrestles after the bell! Thankfully @realrubysoho was able to intervene in time, but what have we just seen from Saraya and Toni Storm? Tune in to #AEWDynamite LIVE on TBS!
Saraya’s actions shocked the commentary team as well. The sneak attack prompted Ruby Soho to make the save. Soho helped Willow get back on her feet as Saraya and Toni Storm laughed outside.
The heel tease comes days after Saraya ditched Hikaru Shida for Storm as her tag team partner against Dr. Britt Baker and AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter. It appears that AEW is building towards a feud between the homegrown stars and the outsiders.
