AEW's Saraya Limited On How Often She Can Wrestle

New details on how often the Anti-Diva will be wrestling.

With last night's AEW Dynamite seeing Saraya confirm that she's been medically cleared to return to the ring, there now comes an update on just how often the Anti-Diva will be lacing up her boots... at least in the short-term.

From Saraya herself, her doctor has initially limited the star to wrestling one match per month.

Speaking on the latest episode of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, the Brit detailed the whole process of getting cleared.


In terms of what the doc told her upon giving her the great news that she'll be able to restart her in-ring career, Saraya explained:

"Just take it easy, we'll do one match a month here or there, then gradually start building it up."

Given how Saraya hasn't wrestled for nearly five years now, and considering the obvious concerns one might have when the situation involves prior neck issues, it sounds as if the former Paige has an extremely smart doctor. Likewise, that "one match a month" remit is only the beginning, with the star clearly having the option to compete more often as time goes by.


In terms of the doctor who cleared her, Saraya didn't name him, but she did note how he wasn't a wrestling doctor, and was instead someone who's dealt with "a bunch of NFL, NBA, all these huge action stars, celebrities, actors and actresses".

The inaugural NXT Women's Champion also detailed how it was Halloween when she was officially cleared, having undergone a full MRI, CT scans, and certain other tests.

An Appointment With D.M.D.

Following Saraya's fantastic news that she's now able to return to in-ring action, it's another doctor who's on the immediate radar of the 30-year-old.

Standing across the ring from Saraya for her return match will be Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., with that duo having butted heads from the moment the two-time WWE Divas Champion made her shocking AEW bow this past September at the Grand Slam edition of Dynamite.

From that moment on, fans have been eagerly awaiting to see whether Saraya had indeed been cleared to resume her wrestling career. While medical confirmation of the second-generation star's ability to step back between the ropes didn't occur until 31 October, the hugely talented, vastly experienced grappler made her return to action official last night - with Saraya cutting an emotional, impactful promo on Baker and announcing that the two will do battle at Full Gear later this month.

Emanating from Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center, AEW Full Gear 2022 takes place on Saturday 19 November.
