AEW presented a big episode of Dynamite this week as they brought the fallout after All In London and the go-home episode before All Out. Sadly, the new AEW Women’s Champion couldn’t make it.
Saraya won a four-way match against Britt Baker, Toni Storm, and Hikaru Shida at Wembley Stadium to win the AEW Women’s World Title. This was a big deal for her, as Saraya pulled down the gold in her home country.
Sadly, Saraya was not seen on AEW Dynamite this week. Her absence had nothing to do with AEW giving her extra time off to stay in London with her family, because Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that she, and Swerve Scott, were actually sick this week.
“Saraya and Swerve were pulled from the show for illness reasons.”
It was also noted that “a bunch of the Florida guys,” including Kenny Omega couldn’t get out of the state due to the hurricane. AEW had to shuffle a few things around this week on Dynamite, but they were able to come out with the show we all saw this week.
Hopefully, Saraya will be able to get better. The Outcasts are booked for match on AEW Collision this Saturday, so Tony Khan obviously expects to have her back in time.
As of this writing, we do not know what illness Swerve Scott and Saraya are suffering from, or if they have different issues. International travel can be dangerous, and it seems that they aren’t feeling great after returning to the United States.
