Serena Deeb is a veteran of the wrestling business. She has worked for the likes of WWE, NWA, and TNA (now known as Impact Wrestling). Deeb is a one-time NWA Worlds Women’s Champion, a six-time OVW Women’s Champion and a one-time WNC Women’s Champion.

Deeb had been working with the WWE as a coach at their Performance Center in Orlando, Florida prior to her release in 2020. She was released as part of the mass budget cuts the company made to offset the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

Deeb bears no hard feelings towards the wrestling giant. In fact, she says she is more than content with WWE’s decision that led to her exit from the company in 2020. “Honestly, I consider both of my releases from WWE two of the best things that have ever happened to me,” she told Washington Post during an interview.

“It was a devastating call, but I had this sense of relief. That chapter had to close because I was heading in a really bad direction. The caveat was ‘if you take this job, you have to be at peace with not wrestling. You’re out of the ring; there are no coach-players here.’ It was a great opportunity, and for me, it was like making peace with WWE, as well.”

Deeb is currently signed to AEW. Her latest appearance for the company was on the Jan. 12th episode of Dynamite where she defeated former Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida. Her next challenger will be Skye Blue. Watch her sit down interview with Jim Ross below:
