Saraya Talks About Her Final Depressing Years With WWE

Saraya, who recently signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling, appeared on Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast to talk about how she loved being the General Manager of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, but then her being the General Manager kind of got cut short and even though she did not get anything negative from her role of being the GM, what happened was just shocking.

This is what Saraya said:

“I got to be [“SmackDown”] GM and I loved it, but then that kind of got cut short.” “And I never really understood why because it was a great gig and I feel like everyone liked it. I never got anything negative from it, but it was just shocking.”

Saraya also talked about how the WWE SmackDown lead writer at the time “Road Dogg” Brian James was so sweet with how he approached the situation of telling her that they will not be doing the GM role any longer and how he decided that she was going to appear on the show and do a goodbye speech as GM.

This is what Saraya said:

“Road Dogg is so sweet and he’s always trying to baby me.” “And he was just like, ‘So, we’re probably not going to do the GM anymore, so you won’t have to come to work tomorrow.’ And then he decided that I was going to come and do a goodbye speech as GM, which I thought was really sweet, too. So, I ended up like flying in, doing that first segment of the show, and then flying back.”

Saraya then talked about how she ended up sitting in her house for three or four years and how that’s the most depressing thing ever because she feels like she is completely useless.

This is what Saraya said:

“But I ended up sitting in my house for three or four years.” “And that’s the most depressing thing, because you just feel like you’re completely useless. And then you can’t go and do anything else because you’re under a contract where even though you’re an independent contractor, you still have to get permission to do stuff. And then it would get turned down.”
