Saraya Addresses Sasha Banks To AEW Rumours

Sasha Banks

Saraya has addressed the rumours surrounding Sasha Banks joining AEW after the English star was tasked with finding a tag team partner in January.

On the 11th of January 2023, AEW will return to Los Angeles for only the second time in company history when Dynamite and Rampage emanate from the Kia Forum. Tongues are wagging for the show already after Dr. Britt Baker DMD challenged Saraya to find a partner to face Baker and AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter on the show.

Rumours immediately began suggesting Sasha Banks could be Saraya’s partner with her WWE status still unknown after she walked out of a Raw show in May 2022. Her status may have become clearer with the news that Banks will be at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 show on the 4th of January 2023.

Speaking in an interview with Forbes, Saraya addressed the rumours that the real-life Mercedes Varnado could be by her side come January:

“I feel like anytime there’s a mystery, everyone always goes straight for Mercedes (laughs). They’re like—straight away—it’s her! There’s plenty of women out there, I’m not going to say yes or no to anybody, but there’s a lot of exciting prospects for a potential tag partner.”

“I’ve always said that I would want to work with Sasha again in any capacity because she’s a pro. In the wrestling side of things, she’s such a fantastic athlete, you can’t deny her talent. She’s fantastic.”

Sasha Banks would be a notable partner for Saraya to team with as it was a move by The Boss that caused the star formerly known as Paige to retire from the ring for several years before competing again at Full Gear 2022 and defeating Baker in a singles encounter.
