Saraya on the diagnosis that makes her unable to wrestle

In an interview with Taylor Wilde's Wilde On podcast, Saraya talked about her medical diagnosis: endometriosis. From the beginning of her career, she faced criticism and comments, which were sometimes not easy to listen to.

“Everybody has an opinion on you. It’s so frustrating. Growing up so young, the thing that used to bother me the most out of everything is the way they would look at my weight, because everyone has an opinion about your — lately as well, they’ll turn it back around.

They tell me that I’m looking a little bigger than usual and I wanna tell them, listen, I’m getting older. I have really bad endometriosis. My belly swells up, I get endo belly and so it swells up for a couple of weeks and it’s really, really painful and I try to hide it.

That’s why I can’t wrestle when my belly is like that. I can’t wear wrestling gear, I’m too swollen. It’s a really painful experience for me and then people will just think I’m fat and I’m just like, ‘You have no idea’ but everyone has an opinion”.

CM Punk's return

The return of CM Punk is certainly one of the more current topics. Saraya also talked about everything and revealed what she thinks about him and his return. Saraya seems to have enormous respect for him.

“[Punk has] always been an absolute sweetheart to me. [We’ve] never had any conflict whatsoever. He’s been very helpful, given a lot of advice over the years. I want whatever’s best for business. If people don’t like each other, you have to find that common ground in a professional setting, you know? … There’s been people I don’t like over the years, but I’ve never let my personal feelings get in the way of business at the end of the day”.
