The women’s wrestling community is buzzing about the Mae Young Classic. Rumors continue to make the rounds over the official and unofficial participants. Now Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that WWE is reaching out to a former employee to participate in a potential wrestling redemption story.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE has reached out to Serena Deeb, who is technically retired, to compete in this summer’s Mae Young Classic tournament. However, the site reports it’s not a done deal quite yet.
Serena wrestled in OVW from 2005-2009 and won their Women’s Championship six times. She was more famously known, however, for being part of the Straight Edge Society on SmackDown in 2010 — a group that also featured CM Punk, Luke Gallows, and Joey Mercury.
Serena spent less than a year with the SES and only wrestled once on the show before her eventual release. She’d remain active on the Independent circuit in SHIMMER, Shine, Queens of Combat and other promotions, before retiring from the ring a few years later in 2015.
Pro Wrestling sheet is reporting that many who watched the Cruiserweight Classic have been wondering if the MYC would have a Brian Kendrick-like redemption story told by any of the wrestlers — if all goes to plan, Deeb is the one.
