Saraya came to AEW with a mission to reclaim her wrestling aspirations. But it looks like weeks of heat and resentment from the fans have caught up to her and Saraya has retaliated with her newfound aggression on this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
The former WWE Divas champion has been tagging along with fellow AEW star Toni Storm for a while now. The duo even teamed up to battle Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D and AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter last week, but they came up short.
This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite saw Toni Storm being accompanied by Saraya for her match against Willow Nightingale in a one-on-one showdown. The final moments of the bout saw Storm roll up Nightingale for the win, as she got distracted by Saraya.
However, what happened right after the bell rang was shocking. As Saraya entered the ring in what looked like to congratulate Toni Storm for the win, she went right after Willow Nightingale and launched a heinous attack on her, with Storm joining the fray.
However, AEW star Ruby Soho made a run-in to make the save for Willow Nightingale. This act of brutality left the fans buzzing on social media about the aggressive side of Saraya they had not witnessed in years.
@ashleyloftus: “Great choice to swerve us and turn Saraya and Toni heel instead of Shida.”
@JPReckless2444: “TK read the room & turned Saraya & Toni heel. If they get Mercedes, that’s a damn good faction!”
@AJHoldItDown: “The womens story is actually interesting to me. Turning Saraya heel makes sense she’s had a superiority complex since she got here.”
@fjlopez1505: “I guess they listen to @Chris_please , they turn Saraya & Toni Storm heel #StrongStyle.”
@mikevilla1222: “Hate to say but the payoff was a let down, all that for a Saraya and Toni heel turn which wouldn’t be bad but in this case it was just disappointing.”
@cnationmaverick: “True we seen a heel Paige and Storm, to me Storm feels weird as a heel she’s too likeable as well. Yea I just can’t imagine a heel Shida, she’s the aggressiveness though.”
@ShinyFrontz: “it does seem they rushed the heel turn for toni and saraya could of given it another week or so.”
This was the ruthless aggression we had seen in the former Anti-Diva back in her days in WWE. With the constant trolling and heat from fans even after a miraculous return to the ring, it seems like Saraya has decided to channel her inner demon and is ready to lay a path of carnage in an attempt to ascend to the top of the women’s division in AEW.
