Saraya’s brother Zak Knight is poised to make his AEW debut after officially signing with the company in February 2024. This significant development occurred during the Rampage tapings, marking his long-awaited AEW in-ring debut after facing delays.

Zak Knight confirmed that he signed with AEW in late February of this year. However, he has yet to make his on-screen debut in a match. That will change with the April 12 episode of AEW Rampage, where Knight will make his in-ring debut against Angelo Parker.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Zak Knight’s delayed in-ring debut in AEW. He noted that it could be due to the fact that Zak Knight may have not been able to go to Canada.

“They been building this matchup for several weeks. I think that Zak may have not been able to go to Canada is my guess. They did a taped segment and Zak basically said he wanted to face Parker but not in Canada and now that they were in West Virginia, they finally did the match.”


The upcoming episode of AEW Rampage was recorded on April 10 at the Charleston Coliseum Convention Center in Charleston, West Virginia. It remains to be seen how AEW will continue to book Zak Knight in the coming weeks.
