Serena Deeb came to the WWE quite some time ago as a member of CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society. She left some time after and wasn’t seen again for 7 years until she re-emerged as a competitor in the Mae Young Classic in 2017. Deeb was quickly bounced from the tournament, and hadn’t been seen since. But she has now returned to NXT in a different capacity, this time as a coach for the female performers down at the WWE Performance Center.
During an interview with WWE.com, Deeb revealed that she will be working alongside Sara Amato to groom the next generation of female talent in the WWE. She then told them her ultimate goal would be to have her own class down at the PC. Bringing in someone so talented, yet so tough and determined, as she’s been through quite a lot in her career is a great thing for WWE, as her perseverance and experience is something that will definitely rub off on the women down there.
She also talked about how the offer to be a coach came about, as it was apparently offered to her before the Mae Young Classic. Thus giving her a spot in the tournament was a great gesture from WWE, and now the move from in ring performer to coach is official. There is a lot of pressure on Deeb, given how good the Women’s division in NXT has been for years now, but she claims she will embrace that and look to help the division improve as the years go by.
