The former Paige has signed with All Elite Wrestling.

Saraya made her debut on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite Grand Slam following the interim AEW Women’s World Championship match, saving Toni Storm and Athena from Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter, and Serena Deeb. The segment ended with Saraya hugging Athena and Storm.

Tony Khan quickly confirmed on social media that Saraya had signed with the company.

Saraya’s contract with WWE expired on July 7 after the company opted not to re-sign her. She has not wrestled since December 2017, suffering a neck injury during a house show match. She had sporadic runs on WWE television in a non-wrestling capacity, most recently serving as a contributor for WWE’s short-lived Backstage show on FS1.

Tonight’s Dynamite had Storm retain the interim title, flash pinning Baker. Baker and Deeb attacked Storm and Athena after the match. Hayter ran down to the ring, at first teasing an attack on Baker after she broke up a pinfall attempt by Hayter back at All Out. However, it was a swerve as Hayter joined in and attacked Storm and Athena until Saraya came out.
