In a conversation with Women's Wrestling Talk, Saraya talked about the current situation in AEW, as well as Tony Khan's attitude towards women's wrestlers. Saraya emphasized that Tony Khan is a great boss and that he treats everyone the right way.

He is ready to hear everyone's opinions, respond to needs, and help at any moment. “Tony treats us great. Like, he’s very respectful. And he takes time to hear us out. And if we have any issues whatsoever, he’ll listen and be receptive to those too.

We do have two shows, well, actually three, including Rampage, and we do have a female match on every single show. And that’s awesome. Like, you know you’re never gonna make everybody happy. And that’s just the nature of the business, whether it be fans or people behind the scenes, not everyone is going to be happy 100% of the time.

But I do feel like we are in a good place and we’re starting to get to an even better place. Now that we do have Statlander back and now she can, you know, defend her championship and then you have me who can defend my championship.

And then yeah, you have Rampage for everybody else to be a part of too and it’s just; we have a lot of show, we have a lot of space and I’m sure that we’ll have plenty of time for everybody”. - she said, as quoted by!

Saraya and AEW Women's Championship

Saraya won the AEW Women's Championship in London. She believes that it was the right moment to get the title, considering that she was not ready for such a thing before. “A year ago, I definitely was not ready.

I don’t think that would be very fair for anybody. Even if I came in straight away and won the championship straight away. From my standpoint, considering I’ve been out for five plus years and then all of a sudden I’m just like, okay, can I win a championship? Yeah, it wouldn’t be too fair, so I liked the way it started.

I like the slow build into it. I was very fortunate that I got to go into a big storyline with Brett Baker. I mean she is one of the top girls of the company. The first ever signing with AEW, so yeah, I was very fortunate when it comes to that, but I liked that it took me a year to get it.

So it gave me a little bit more of a build and a fight. And there were girls in between that got the championship. I felt like yeah, now was the perfect time”.
