With Paige opting not to renew her contract with the WWE, there’s a lot of buzz about what she’ll do next. Now, the former wrestling star’s first post-WWE appearance has officially been announced.

Paige, advertised under the name Saraya, will appear at Starrcast V in Nashville, Tennessee, next month. The event is set for July 29 to 31 at the Nashville Fairgrounds. In addition to the appearance, she’ll also host a stage show called Saraya: Turning the Page.

“She signed a major contract at the age of 18,” Starrcast stated on Twitter. “At 21, she became the first #WWENXT & youngest ever Women’s Champion. Her first night on #WWERaw, she won the #WWE Diva’s Championship. Now… what’s next for @RealPaigeWWE?”

Paige recently announced that she and WWE would part ways on July 7. She has not appeared on WWE television since 2020, and had not wrestled since late 2017, when she suffered a neck injury.
