Saraya made an appearance on AEW Unrestricted to discuss a wide range of topics.

During it, Saraya was asked how she came up with the name Britani Knight when she first got into wrestling:

“My dad loved Gladys Knight growing up, so he named himself after Gladys Knight, which is better than our real last name, which is Bevis. The amount of frickin jokes I had about Bevis, Beavis and Butt-Head jokes, days on days and days. Britani came from when I was younger, my mom used to dye my hair all these different colors and she bleached my hair blonde. My dad thought I looked like Britney Spears, so he called me Britani. He had to come up with a name and he called me Britani because my mom was using Saraya. She still uses Saraya to this day. I’m like sorry Mom, but I have to. So yeah, that’s how Britani Knight came about.”
