All Elite Wrestling has recently been in a tug of war with its rival promotion WWE over talent acquisition. Amidst the ongoing battle, bringing in former WWE Superstar Saraya was a statement signing by Tony Khan.

Speaking on the matter to Sportskeeda Wrestling, Hall of Fame journalist Bill Apter opined that the former champion will boost the women's division of her new promotion. He also thanked All Elite Wrestling for making it happen.

"Nice to be totally surprised on a wrestling show seeing someone appear who you didn't think you'd see. Thank you AEW for bringing former WWE Paige -- onto the roster under her real name Saraya. This will add a new dimension to the women's division and raise their visibility -- bringing back her legion of fans that loved her in WWE," said Apter.
Following her shocking arrival at #AEWDynamite: Grand Slam that blew the roof of Arthur Ashe stadium, we will hear from @saraya this Wednesday night on #AEWDynamite LIVE at 8pm ET / 7pm CT on @TBSnetwork

Saraya was forced to retire from wrestling due to a neck injury in 2018. Although she is back in the frame, it is unclear if she has been cleared to compete again.
