• Paige’s Return To Pro-Wrestling Helps AEW Get Mainstream Media Attention
While AEW is the #2 pro-wrestling company in the US, only behind WWE, they don’t get much mainstream media coverage.
However, with Paige (Saraya) debuting in All Elite Wrestling on this week’s Dynamite: Grand Slam, AEW received a lot of attention.
BBC News covered Paige’s return to the world of wrestling, as they posted the following article:
“Saraya: WWE’s Paige shocks fans in debut for rival firm AEW”
BBC wrote the following about Saraya in their article:
“The reveal seems to have blindsided most fans, with one calling it a ‘legit shock’, and many praising AEW for the ‘huge signing’.
Saraya, who was born in Norwich, is one of professional wrestling’s best-known female talent.
The 30-year-old held a number of major WWE titles during her career, and received awards recognizing her contribution to its women’s division.”
