WWE News: Serena Deeb working as a guest coach at the Performance Center
A veteran competitor from the Mae Young Classic lends a hand in Orlando this week.
What's the story?
Since the WWE Performance Center opened, the WWE has brought in guest trainers to assist the talent who is working down there in Orlando, Florida. Recently, the WWE posted a YouTube video of former superstar Serena Deeb who was down there this past week.
Take a look at the video below:
In case you didn't know...
Deeb took part in the inaugural Mae Young Classic in August. She advanced to the second round after defeating Vanessa Bourne but was then defeated by Piper Niven.
She had a previous run in the WWE when she debuted in January of 2010 as part of CM Punk's Straight Edge Society. The WWE released her in August of the same year for not living up to her straight-edge persona in public.
The heart of the matter
Deeb stated that the energy at the Performance Center is incredible, and this is the strongest group of women that she has ever seen in pro wrestling since her debut in 2005.
In regards to being a guest trainer at the WWE Performance Center, Deeb says the teaching feels natural to her. This is because she comes from a lineage of teachers.
Previous guest trainers at the WWE Performance Center include ECW legend Jerry Lynn, Sarah Stock (Sarita in Impact Wrestling), Kevin Nash, and Rocky Romero.
It is unknown what is next for Serena Deeb, but her appearance in the Mae Young Classic may mean that the 31-year-old wrestler is coming out of retirement for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more updates.
It is really cool to see Serena lend her expertise to those learning at the WWE Performance Center. Her story of returning to wrestling was a great one during the Mae Young Classic. She was the veteran in the tournament looking for another chance much like Brian Kendrick in the Cruiserweight Classic.
I really hope that Serena still wants to continue her pro wrestling comeback. I think she'd make a great fit right now with the women in NXT.
