Saraya recently talked about how the locker rooms and stars in WWE and AEW view each other, and for those with conspiracies in mind, it is sure to be disappointing. The former Paige worked with WWE for many years before departing in June and debuting with AEW at the Dynamite: Grand Slam show in September.
Most importantly, she was medically cleared to wrestle under Tony Khan, which was not the case in WWE and was one of the reasons she left the promotion. Now that she has had a taste of the AEW locker room, Saraya will have a good gauge of the goings-on backstage.

Speaking to Alfred Konuwa during an appearance on Pro Wrestling Bits, the former Divas Champion revealed what the WWE locker room thought about AEW.
“When I was backstage in WWE, I didn’t see people talking sh*t about AEW. People were just happy that there’s another place for people to go because when people would get let go in WWE, we’d be so devastated for people, you know what I mean? It’d be like someone just died or something like that. Now, we’re just like, ‘Well, you have an opportunity in AEW now.’ We get happy for people that they have a place that they can go that’s just as big and just as goliath, just as gigantic, you know? Such a big platform.”
She also disclosed that AEW stars felt the same about WWE.
“When it came to AEW too, granted, I’m like more hanging out with a lot of the girls and stuff like that, but I don’t see anyone talking crap,” Saraya said. “No one talks crap about each other behind the scenes.”
Saraya added that there are so many opportunities for AEW talent, as they can partake in reality and TV shows and be a part of NFL-related activities thanks to Tony Khan’s affiliation with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
