AEW star Saraya hits back at body shaming troll – ‘watch my fat a** at Wembley’
Top British female wrestler Saraya has slammed body-shaming trolls just weeks before she returns to her homeland.
Norwich-born Saraya, who wrestles for All Elite Wrestling and was formerly known as Paige in WWE, is set to take part in a fatal four-way match for the AEW Women's Championships at Wembley Stadium.
The company has sold nearly 85k tickets for the August 27 All In show, but the match fought by Saraya to qualify for the headline bout was marred by social media abuse directed at the 30-year-old.

Her match against Skye Blue was her first for a month or so, and it saw her face horrific abuse.
A bloke called Steve was the main source of anger.
Using the account @SteelyDann8 on Twitter, he wrote: “@Saraya, goodness! When did you get so f**king fat?!?!
"You were so fit and slender.
“The size of your ass is mind boggling!!
“You need to coverup when wrestling!! (sic).”
The tweet was deleted when, unsurprisingly, Saraya hit back – and was quickly backed by fellow female wrestlers.

She wrote: “LOL Anyways watch my fat ass at #ALLIN at Wembley Stadium and then watch my fat ass win that championship!”
She was supported by ex-WWE star Summer Rae.
She tweeted: “Sitting at your keyboard like oh THIIIIS is what I am going to do this fine Friday night.
“Be a complete a**hole to someone I’ll never meet and make them feel like s**t.
“That’ll fill my empty soul & make me feel good about myself.
“Yep…lemme hit ‘send’.
“God bless your parents.”

Saraya will look to send the biggest message possible to her haters by taking the championship from current holder Hikarua Shida.
She'll be competing against Shida, and fellow team mate Toni Storm as well as either Britt Baker or The Bunny.
And Saraya is more than excited about proving a point.
She said: “I haven’t wrestled in my home country in around seven or eight years.
“I haven’t won a championship in nine years.
“I was told I would NEVER wrestle again.
“I’m coming home . . .and I’m gonna walk out of Wembley Stadium in front of my family and countrymen the AEW women’s world champion.”
