Saraya has officially been cleared to compete in All Elite Wrestling.

This is per Dave Meltzer, who reports in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Saraya has been declared good to go by AEW's Dr. Michael Sampson - which doesn't necessarily come as a huge surprise given the events of Wednesday evening.

AEW had Britt Baker, Saraya's apparent feud partner, cut a heel promo insisting the former Paige would never be cleared to wrestle for the company. Then, in what was Saraya's first physical spot in close to five years, the duo brawled after a trios match, with Saraya throwing a handful of strikes.


The former WWE Divas Champion hasn't competed since suffering a reoccurrence of a serious neck injury in December 2017, forcing her to retire a few months later. Departing WWE when her contract expired earlier this year, Saraya debuted for AEW on 21 September's special Grand Slam episode of Dynamite, clearing a group of heels from the ring - including Baker.

Whether or not she would be able to wrestle for the promotion was the biggest question surrounding Saraya coming into AEW. It looks like this has now been answered.
