Saraya’s WWE career will forever be remembered as one of the most significant for women’s wrestling in the past ten years. Saraya made her way to AEW following her WWE departure, but it appears she admitted that she was not ready to be a champion last year.
Saraya made her All Elite Wrestling debut during ‘Dynamite: Grand Slam last year and eventually made her in-ring debut against Britt Baker at AEW Full Gear, where she won the match.
While speaking on Women’s Wrestling Talk, Saraya admitted that she was not ready to be a champion last year after her debut.
“I wasn’t ready for that. Even now, there’s conversation like, ‘Is she ready? Is she not ready?’ I couldn’t give a sh*t about that, but a year ago I definitely was not ready,” Saraya said. “I don’t think that would be very fair for anybody either if I came in straight away and won the championship straight away. From my standpoint, considering I’ve been out for five plus years, and then all of a sudden, I’m just like, ‘Okay, I can win a championship,’ yeah, it wouldn’t be too fair.
I like the way I started,” Saraya continued. “I like the slow build to it. I was very fortunate that I got to go in into a big storyline with Britt Baker. She is one of the top girls of the company, the first ever signing with AEW. So yeah, I was very fortunate when it comes to that, but I like that it took me a year to get it. It gave me a little bit more of a build and, and a fight for it. And there was girls in between that got the championship. I feel like now was the perfect time.”
Saraya won the AEW Women’s Championship at AEW All In and it was joyous occasion for her. We’ll have to wait and see how she will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
