Saraya (Paige) Comments On Possible WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

Saraya (Paige in WWE) left WWE in July after her contract expired and she wasn't re-signed.

Saraya was signed by WWE in September 2011 and was the first ever NXT Women's Champion. She would go on to win the WWE Divas Championship on her first night on the main roster, which came the night after WrestleMania 30 on WWE Raw.

Along with finding in-ring success, Saraya's journey to WWE was turned into a movie "Fighting with my Family," which was produced by The Rock.

On the latest episode of The Bellas Podcast, The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie Bella) pushed for Saraya to be inducted into the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame.

Paige commented by saying, "You texted me about that and I was like, 'Oh my God, that would be amazing,' but then I looked at it and I was like, I wouldn't get my hopes up for a long time. I'm only just going to be 30."

Brie mentioned that the timing was perfect since WrestleMania 39 will be in Hollywood and Saraya's in-ring career was over for the time being, which led to Nikki asking if she was done with wrestling.

"For right now," responded Saraya. "My neck is fantastic, I'm having no issues with it and it's looking good and stuff. I still want more time though. I've had nearly five years, completely out of the ring. It goes by so quickly. I could see myself in the ring one day, but it would have to be something really special and a big moment. Even if it was a WrestleMania thing, if they ever want to do something, it would be like a WrestleMania moment, something like that. I wouldn't want it wasted if it was just one final match back or whatever."

Circling back to the Hall of Fame discussion, Saraya expressed excitement that even fans online were advocating for a Hall of Fame spot for her, "I love that you guys bring it up. Thea [Zelina Vega] was texting me about it and was like, 'I'm going to put it out there in the universe.' When I left, WWE did all these amazing social media things for me, it was really sweet. A lot of people underneath, I'm not usually a comment reader, because I hate social media, but they were like, 'Now, the Hall of Fame.' 'Oh my God.'"

She concluded by saying, "I set goals for myself when I got to WWE and I've done pretty much everything I've wanted to do, but I wanted to be in the Hall of Fame so bad. That was my end goal, to be in the Hall of Fame, that would be such a big deal because not everyone gets to be in it unless you're like a celebrity who turned up at the show once or twice [laughs]. Not a lot of women are in there. It would be huge and a big deal. I know you have to make history to be in there. Then I see people who would benefit going in before me, but I would like to be on the radar, for sure."
