From the WWE rumour mill: WWE bringing back a former member of CM Punk's Straight Edge Society
What's the story?
A former member of CM Punks' Straight-Edge Society, Serena Deeb may soon be making a return to WWE. According to PWInsider, she was in Pittsburgh PA on the 8th of January, because she was in the middle of her pre-signing medical.
Reports from PWInsider have stated that officials from WWE may be interested in bringing back the former WWE superstar to the company.
In case you didn't know...
Serena Deeb was signed to WWE and worked in Florida Championship Wrestling, the then WWE developmental territory, for the better part of 2009. On the 22nd of January, she made the jump to the main roster disguised as an audience member, only to jump over the barrier and join CM Punk's group of followers, which would later be dubbed as 'The Straight-Edge Society'. She would be released near the end of 2010, only to make a return to WWE in 2017 for the Mae Young Classic.
Though mainly remembered for her time with the society, Serena was an accomplished wrestler outside WWE as well, having won multiple championships across different promotions.
The heart of the matter
Recent reports concerning Serena all seem to point to a return to WWE for the former Straight-Edge star. With WWE officials reportedly interested in her, fans may see Deeb return to the ring if all goes well with her medical tests.
With the first ever Women's Royal Rumble coming up, WWE have had to look outside the main roster for enough women to make up the numbers for the 30-Woman Rumble. Serena's return would help WWE to have a credible woman performer not only in the Rumble but as a long-term addition to the roster.
Fans may see Serena Deeb return to WWE in the first ever Women's Royal Rumble Match, which is scheduled to take place on the 28th of January at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in the Well Fargo Center.
Deeb brought a certain gravitas to the character she had played as a part of CM Punk's Straight-Edge Society. Her ability to bring something different to the table will go a long way in helping WWE's growing Women's division.
