Former WWE star Saraya wins AEW debut match after five years out of the ring

Former WWE star Saraya returned to the ring to take a triumphant victory.

After performing as Paige in WWE, Saraya took five years out of wrestling. She retuned yesterday (Saturday, November 19) at the star-studded event and managed to bag a win against Dr Britt Baker.

The fight was at AEW Full Gear pay-per-view, the fourth annual professional wrestling event that took place in New Jersey, USA.

This win was much anticipated by Saraya herself, who sustained a neck injury at the WWE house show in December 2018, which forces her to take a five year career break.

She defeated her opponent, Dr. Britt Baker, by hitting two cradle DDTs where she falls on her back and pulls her opponent down face first. This move has been used many times by her previously and this was her first attempt of it as she returned.

When the bell rang for the beginning of the match, Dr Britt Baker allowed moment silence for everyone to appreciate Saraya’s comeback after her forced retirement.

However, it didn’t take long for Baker to target Saraya’s surgically repaired neck after her painful spinal stenosis.

Saraya’s brother could be seen glaring at ringside and Baker looked over at him before attempting her lockjaw submission. Baker heresy is known as the Dentist and this move ruins someone’s teeth in a swift jab to their mouth or jaw.

Saraya was anticipating this, however, and fought back in a flurry.

The following scenes were filled with various moves and jabs. Critics claim that the fighting wasn’t as clean and crisp as it was before the retirement but considering the time off, the wrestling was professional and well done.

The story concluded with a move the former Paige used frequently, called the Rampaiges. This move took the opponent down and gave victory to Saraya.

Twitter users were quick to praise the pro, commenting “This is Rampage, baby.”

This first victory back was incredible for Saraya and fans of wrestling are wondering whether this victory will carry on into the next competitions.
