Saraya will wrestle her first match in years this weekend at AEW Full Gear. While there was a lot of uncertainty regarding Saraya’s health following her tragic injury, which forced her to retire in 2018, a new report notes that the former women’s champion had been confident that AEW would allow her to wrestle again.
According to Fightful Select, AEW President Tony Khan told the site that Saraya was confident she would be medically cleared to compete and that he took her word for it. Khan also noted that if the former women’s champion had been unable to get cleared, the company would’ve given her an “ambassador” role.
Saraya is set to take on Britt Baker this Saturday at Full Gear.
