Serena Deeb responds to Bayley and Shazza McKenzie

The Current NWA Women’s Champion saw all the bustle on Twitter and responded to Bayley and McKenzie. Since NWA and AEW have an agreement among them, Deeb vs. McKenzie seems plausible. However, Bayley vs. Deeb might have to wait for a while.

Serena is a famous name in the independent circuit. However, she had brief stints in WWE and TNA. Back in 2010, Deeb was a part of CM Punk’s Straight Edge society alongside Luke Gallows. She shaved her head as a part of the gimmick.

She returned to Independent Circuit and had a semi-retirement in 2015. However, she returned to WWE as part of the first Mae Young Classic on July 13, 2017, defeating Vanessa Borne in the first round. This was Deeb’s first match since 2015.

 

The following day, Deeb was eliminated from the tournament in the second round by Piper Niven. WWE announced in 2018 that Deeb would become a coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
