Serena Deeb Heading to Japan


Serena Deeb‘s fantastic 2013 continues as she’s heading back to Japan in July to wrestle for Wrestling New Classic!

The promotion is owned by former WWE star Tajiri and is fairly new, having started running shows in April of last year. Serena will take on WNC Women’s Champion Lin Byron on July 25th at Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo.

The former WWE Diva announced her return to the Land of the Rising Sun via a series of tweets:

Serena made several notable appearances for Tajiri’s former promotion SMASH in 2011, plowing through every single one of her opponents…that is, until her rival Kana managed to defeat her in the finals of the SMASH Divas Championship tournament in September 2011.

In October of the same year, Serena was forced to take an indefinite leave of absence from wrestling due to a serious concussion she sustained. Her leave lasted eighteen months, ending only recently in March 2013 when she wrestled at TNA’s Knockout Knockdown: One Night Only pay-per-view. She has also since returned to SHIMMER Women Athletes.

Check out her May 2011 encounter with Kana below:
