It’s been a long time coming, but Saraya’s return to the wrestling ring is finally here with tonight’s AEW Full Gear. Saraya shocked everyone with her AEW debut and she wasted no time aiming for Britt Baker, and two didn’t make a fist at the mic leading up to their match. Now it was time to actually get in the ring, and Saraya and Baker had an incredibly physical matchup that ended with several close calls and nearly falling. Saraya would end up winning the battle and the comments started pouring in regarding the match, which you can find on the next slide.
This was Saraya’s first match in five years and fans were quite impressed with the lack of ring rust and the bumps she suffered during the match. There are also questions about who she should face next as she just faced the biggest star in the AEW Women’s Division in her first match back, so hopefully we’ll get some answers soon.
