Former WWE star Paige gives update on potential in-ring return

Saraya Jade-Bevis joined Renee Paquette on the latest episode of The Sessions.

While appearing on the latest episode of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Saraya-Jade Bevis (formerly known as Paige in WWE) gave an update on her in-ring status.

Saraya announced this June that she would be departing WWE when her contract expired in July. In the statement announcing her departure, Saraya indicated that she would one day compete in the ring again.

Saraya told Paquette that she's feeling fantastic physically. Saraya said that, if she were to return to the ring, it would be for "a really big moment." 

"I feel fantastic, I really do feel fantastic," Saraya said. "I still have the mental block of like, 'Oh my God, if I was to get in the ring, what if?' If I was to have to be in the ring, it would be for a really big moment, to wrestle. I'll do promos here and there, for big companies, but to actually wrestle, it would have to be a really big moment. I would love to face Sasha [Banks] again, for real. Because, like, it ended the way it did."

When Paquette brought up that wrestling is still something that Saraya is excited about, Saraya joked that she'll have as many retirement matches as Ric Flair

"Always, dude. Always. I'm like Ric Flair. I'm gonna have a ton of retirement matches," Saraya said. "Ric Flair, I'm going to be your age and be like, 'My last one guys, I promise.'"

Paquette said it'd be such a cool moment if Saraya were to wrestle again.

"I think so too," Saraya responded. "I think it'd be really special. We'll see, though."

Saraya hasn't wrestled since December 2017. It was revealed in January 2018 that WWE had medically disqualified her from in-ring competition due to issues with her neck.

Saraya's final match before being disqualified from the ring was a six-woman tag match with Banks as one of her opponents.

WWE made the decision not to renew Saraya's contract when it expired earlier this year.

This October, Saraya will return to her family's World Association of Wrestling promotion for an appearance at their Fightmare IV event. The show is taking place in Norwich, England on Saturday, October 15.
