The interim AEW Women’s World title was on the line at Dynamite Grand Slam on September 21 in New York City, and the odds were against reigning champion Toni Storm. She had to defend herself against three other women, including former champion Dr. Britt Baker, DMD
That turned out not to be such a big challenge. Baker, Athena, and Serena Deeb all took big shots — including one that appeared to break the doctor’s nose again.
Perhaps that contributed to an abrupt pin from the interim champion? In reality, AEW had to defer the match to the post-match business. At first they kept teasing Jamie Hayter with Baker. When she didn’t and the heels lined up to defeat Storm, an unfamiliar tune played from the speakers… and an unexpected woman came on stage.
Saraya “Paige” Knight, who has not wrestled since 2017 due to injury and whose WWE contract expired earlier this summer, is All Elite!
While the 30-year-old has been working on a comeback after her career ended early due to neck problems, we hadn’t heard of her being acquitted. However, the announcers made it sound like she was tonight. If so, things have skyrocketed for the AEW Women – a pioneer of the Women’s Evolution is now a member of their locker room.
And… here’s another sign Saraya will wrestle for AEW.
