Talking about Triple H, Saraya said, “My (NXT) t-shirt got released, which was the ‘Think Again’ t-shirt that Triple H had made for me. And, it sold out instantly. Like that.

Currently, Saraya is working in Tony Khan’s AEW. She joined AEW after leaving WWE because the company’s policy didn’t allow her to wrestle due to her neck injury. Fans last saw her inside the ring in April 2023 and fans are eagerly waiting to see her in a main feud.

Saraya was quite young when she joined WWE. She was also one of those first wrestlers who worked in NXT under the leadership of Triple H. So it would not be a lie if we say that, she is also among those stars whom ‘The Game’ helped to achieve a good spot in the professional wrestling industry.
