Coming to you from the world of professional wrestling, I am going to discuss a curious case that has caught the wrestling world by storm. It’s about Serena Deeb, a wrestling talent known for her last AEW TV appearance back in October 2022. Since then, her mysterious absence has left fans and insiders puzzled.
Deeb, previously the NWA Women’s World Champion, seems to have ‘heat’ in All Elite Wrestling, according to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio. Describing the puzzling situation, Alvarez expressed, “I haven’t gotten an answer either. But like something happened, there was some sort of heat over something. So whatever it was…she’s just not being used.” Dave Meltzer, another wrestling analyst, revealed a similar sentiment. “I haven’t even heard them even hint about her name or anything. It feels like forever,” Meltzer noted.
Despite the buzz, there’s no clear line on what might have caused Deeb’s unwarranted silence in AEW arena. Rumors from the wrestling grapevine back in June, eight long months into her hiatus, reported that she hadn’t been backstage in ages, causing some stir among the fans.
The past is an essential part of this complex narrative — Deeb had joined AEW back in 2020, shortly after her unceremonious departure from WWE, where she served as a coach. With her relentless dedication and unique charisma, Deeb used to be a central figure in AEW TV before her unexpected leave.
However, the nature of her abrupt absence has sparked criticism against AEW as well. Despite having a large roster and shows like Dynamite, Rampage, Collision, and ROH TV, the franchises have been accused of not providing enough screen time to their talents.
Interestingly, Deeb’s last wrestling gig was at the AEW Dark Elevation taping that happened on October 18, 2022. After that, it is as if she just vanished. According to sources like Fightful Select, Deeb had been missing from backstage events at AEW, and her AEW status seems to be shrouded in mystery.
Meanwhile, Deeb fans are left wondering about her return. However, as Alvarez and Meltzer suggest, it seems like the silence is going to stick around for a while longer.
