Following her AEW debut, Saraya was recently criticized by, and then got into a social media argument, with Jim Cornette.
On a podcast episode, Cornette wondered how Saraya was medically cleared to wrestle in AEW when WWE hadn’t cleared her. He then passed a judgment that WWE thought she couldn’t get cleared to wrestle by their standards so “maybe she should go somewhere where the standards are lower.”
The former WWE star was not happy about this. She recently took to Twitter to call out the dirt sheets and also took a dig at Cornette. She wrote:
“Dirt sheets. Podcasters and an old man that loves to have his voice heard even if it’s full of sh*t (cornette) loves to talk about me. You’re welcome for the clicks and views.”
In response to the tweet, Cornette took digs at the former NXT Women’s Champion by asking her to be “more interesting”.
“Thank you for the “You’re welcome”, but the last clip we spoke about you in has yet to outperform “Jerry Jarrett’s locker room fight with Dandy Jack Donovan in 1973″, so please try to be more interesting. Thanks.”
