Earlier this year, AEW star Serena Deeb was forced out of action due to a knee injury. Deeb has now discussed the backstage roles she stepped into during her time on the shelf.
Speaking with Nick Hausman on The Wrestling Inc. Daily, Deeb explained that she took on coaching and producer roles while she was side-lined. Noting that she plans to continue coaching, Deeb said:
“In the meantime, when I was kind of sitting on the side-lines I stepped into the coaching role and the producing role. Kind of like the stuff I was doing before at the other company,” she said. “I’m helping them with their matches, I am on headset next to Tony calling their matches, talking to the truck, doing all of that. I love that too and, you know what? That has an exhilarating component in itself. Like, especially when you really help and then you watch them go out there and they kill it. You feel like you’re part of that, it’s very rewarding.”
“Definitely polarizing emotions, you know? For example, yesterday I did what was supposed to be a four-hour seminar but it ended up being a six-hour seminar because we were just in it and we were just going. I felt so good at the end of it. I really love coaching and I want it to be a part of my life and my future and I am getting to do a little bit of that at AEW, as well. So that’s a part of me, for sure. I have an innate desire to help people and I’ve kind of always been like that, I really love it.”
Deeb started working as a WWE Performance Center coach in 2018, before she was released from the position in April 2020. Deeb officially signed with AEW in September 2020.
Teasing a Straight Edge Society reunion, Deeb recently spoke about her relationship with CM Punk, detailing his impact on her career.
