I know after my neck injury taking me out of in-ring status, it was pretty hard to keep me around for as long as you did, and for that I’m thankful too.

“Thank you to the WWE Universe. You guys are the most passionate group of fans I’ve ever seen. Hope you continue to stay on this journey with me.

“I think the toughest part weirdly enough is having to let the Paige name go! But Saraya is helluva name. Kudos to my mum for that one.

“Thank you WWE, Saraya —”
