AEW interviewer Renee Paquette has named a recent booking decision in the company that she thought was ‘disappointing’.
Saraya captured the AEW Women’s World Championship back at AEW All In at Wembley Stadium in August in her home country.
However, Saraya’s reign with the title was short lived, dropping it back to Hikaru Shida on AEW Dynamite Title Tuesday on October 10.
Speaking with Women’s Wrestling Talk with TK Trinidad, AEW interviewer Renee Paquette discussed Saraya’s run, saying that her losing the title was ‘disappointing’.
“I mean, for sure, disappointing. I mean, you look at somebody like Saraya and what she brings to AEW, what she brings to that women’s division. And I think she kind of finding her footing again as well, after, you know, not wrestling for five-plus years. So for her to come back from this injury, thinking she was never gonna wrestle again, thinking she was fully retired, boots hung up to now coming back into this world and trying to figure it all out again. It’s been really cool to see her get into her groove, and I think are having that championship belt and being able to have a different run, I would have loved to have seen that I would have loved to have seen her be able to defend that title more and have some more of those matches and have more of those opportunities.
“Obviously, Shida is fantastic. We have so many great women. But yeah, Raya is my girl and I think that she just brings a certain cache to women’s wrestling. She really is that woman that… she didn’t single handedly but she was a big part of changing the way that we look at women’s wrestling and changing the mold of what female wrestlers are. I think that we all need to continue to slap a little respect on that woman’s name. She’s a badass.”
Saraya has been teaming up with Ruby Soho as the Outcasts on AEW television recently amid an ongoing love story between Ruby and Angelo Parker.
