Saraya calls it the sell of the night. 

One of the title changes on the night at AEW All In saw Saraya emerge victorious from a four-way to become AEW Women’s World Champion in her home country of England. 

Saraya bested Toni Storm, Britt Baker and Hikaru Shida in the match. For Saraya’s entrance, she came out to ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen and her family accompanied her to the ring. They were ringside for the bout and Saraya’s mother, a 30-plus year veteran in pro wrestling, took a punch from Toni Storm. 

Looking back on that moment, Saraya told Women’s Wrestling Talk that her mother sold it like a champ. She jokingly called it ‘sell of the night’. 

Oh, she (Saraya’s mother) sold that like a champ and my dad’s just laughing at her. Did you see him right next to her? He’s just laughing. That’s why they’ve been married so long because they can just never take each other seriously. It’s hilarious… It was great. She sold better than every single — well she’s been wrestling a lot longer than everybody else but yeah, she just sold amazing. Sell of the night.

Next up on the docket for Saraya is a title defense at AEW Grand Slam at Arthur Ashe Stadium. She’ll be putting the championship on the line against the winner of a four-way on the 9/13 Dynamite. Competing in the four-way are the following names: Toni Storm, Britt Baker, Hikaru Shida and Nyla Rose.
