New AEW Women’s World Champion Saraya “would love” to work with the UK’s Revolution Pro Wrestling.
On August 27th, All Elite Wrestling made history when over 80,000 fans packed into Wembley Stadium for All In. However, the night before, RevPro also made their mark, hosting their most ambitious show to date in the Copper Box, which is also set to be the venue for NJPW’s Royal Quest III in October.
The card for their 11th Anniversary event featured top names from the independent scene as well as a host of NJPW wrestlers and even surprise appearances from the stars of AEW. The event was headlined by Will Ospreay taking on Shingo Takagi just one night before the Aerial Assassin was to compete in the biggest match of his career against Chris Jericho at All In.
After Ospreay was able to slay The Dragon, Jericho made his presence felt, appearing in a mask and blindsiding Ospreay with a vicious attack. Aussie Open then appeared to make the save for their leader in United Empire.
During the media scrum after All In, Tony Khan was asked about his company’s relationship with RevPro, and he spoke about his friendship with the promotion’s owner, Andy Quildan.
“I really like Andy a lot and I’ve attended RevPro, and I’ve worked with them and I’ve tried to feature their clips in the shows.
“I would say, absolutely we have a working relationship with Andy and RevPro. We’re both great partners to New Japan. I consider Andy a friend and I like to help out my friends. If that means somebody can make an appearance there and it’s not going to affect our schedule or change anything detrimental for AEW, I love working with RevPro.”
Saraya’s cousin, Ricky Knight Jr. is a RevPro regular and was featured on the card in a bout against NJPW World TV Champion Zack Sabre Jr., something Khan considers to be a great thing.
“For Saraya to have family there and for us to have so many people that are part of AEW or people to have a pipeline to AEW, it’s a great thing. I support Andy and when I’ve had a chance, have featured RevPro clips on AEW television to show RevPro off and our stars wrestling for them.”
When asked if she would consider appearing on a RevPro show herself, Saraya was open to the idea, noting she was jealous that Sky Blue had appeared on the Anniversary show.
“I would love to do stuff with RevPro. I saw Skye Blue got to be part of the show. She got a great reaction, people absolutely adore her. I was a little jealous, honestly, ‘I want to do RevPro too.’ I had to do some Wembley stuff.”
That “Wembley stuff” included winning the AEW World Women’s Championship for the first time, something she kept close to her chest, not even telling her family of the result in advance.
Saraya “kayfabed” her family about AEW All In win
According to her brother, Zak Zodiac, the Outcasts leader didn’t even give a hint of what was to come in Wembley Stadium.
“Absolutely. I want to let the world know, Saraya’s actually writing her book. When she found out that this was happening, she kayfabed the family. Trust me, we didn’t have a single clue. She loves to work us. But she [told] Tony, look, you don’t even know, but you’ve actually just given me the ending to my book.”
Saraya has also spoken about how special it was to share the spotlight with her family at the UK spectacular.
