Saraya Praises Britt Baker After Full Gear: "She Really Carried Me Throughout This Whole Thing"


Saraya respects the D.M.D.

Following her victory over Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. at AEW Full Gear 2022 on Saturday night, Saraya spoke at the post-show media scrum about her work with the fellow women's wrestling star since arriving in All Elite Wrestling.

Featured below are some of the highlights where she comments on Baker carrying her throughout her run in AEW thus far.

On training a lot in the UK and with Santino Bros in California to prepare for her in-ring return against Britt Baker: "I got to go home to the UK recently, we did some training there, training with my family is always a plus, that’s where I started. I got to go to Santino Bros in California,” she revealed. “Jungle Boy offered me his ring but I didn’t get to go around there. I will go there and ask him to use his ring. I did a lot of training. I didn’t try to do 100% bumping around until I knew my neck was okay and then it was an everyday thing. I even had a signing and I had to cancel it because I had to focus on this. I was 100% in on this. It did take a lot and I know I am rusty. It’s been five years and I tried to give 110% and I felt like I did that, I gave as much as I could. Working with Britt, she’s a star, an absolute star. She helped me a lot. Long story short, I worked out a lot and I’m going to continue to do so."

On Britt Baker carrying her through the feud and the match: "Britt was the first-ever signee here, she has built this division so I totally understand that. I was an outsider coming in, but it was more between me and Britt. It was such a special moment for us two. I’m stepping out of character a little bit here, but I feel with Britt, she really carried me throughout this whole thing. Truly, she’s an absolute pro. I was rusty when I did the promos and stuff like that. I felt we delivered a really good in-ring promo and the next week she did this beautiful babyface promo, ‘Oh man, this is going to be tough.’ With me and her, there’s no real heel or face, you just cheer for who you want to cheer for. You either cheer for the homegrown talent or you cheer for the girl who comes back from a career-ending injury."
