Saraya: I loved my time in WWE, but I'm happy now in AEW

The former Paige also took a shot at social media tribalism in a now-deleted tweet.

In the wake of criticism for her debut promo on AEW Dynamite, Saraya took to Twitter Friday to defend her comments and say that she loved her time in WWE, especially the time and opportunities given in her NXT days with Paul "Triple H" Levesque.

During her Wednesday segment, she mentioned how it was so good to have a boss (Tony Khan) that finally listens to her which some took as a shot toward WWE where she spent eleven years in both developmental and the main roster.

"I say how my current boss listens to me and all of sudden it’s “So hAtE yOu WwE”. No I don’t. I loved my time there. I appreciate the time and the opportunities I was given. Especially in my NXT days with Triple H. I’m happy now in AEW though. Tribalism in IWC is so bizarre to me"

Since Wednesday, the 30-year-old has tweeted several times about being "rusty," including the revolution line:

She made her debut at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam just over a week ago and reportedly signed a three-year deal.
