Exclusive: Women of Wrestling Podcast with Serena Deeb


We’ve had a couple of months downtime, but we’ve not been resting on our laurels – as we return with one of our biggest guests yet, recent WWE “Anti Diva” Serena Deeb! A nicer person you could not hope to meet, as despite being inundated with wrestling bookings, she was able to give us over an hour of her time to discuss her career to date – including, but not limited to: her return at SHIMMER in September, training with Rip Rogers in OVW, the early days of her career when she was trying to get noticed, meeting CM Punk, SHIMMER memories, getting signed, comparing FCW to OVW, the Mia Mancini character, thoughts on who should win NXT, meeting Vince McMahon, the hair shaving, walking down the ramp at WrestleMania, scratching the wrestling itch, and her plans for 2011 (and whether those plans include TNA).

Not only that, before Serena joins us, we’ve got quick mentions on recent shows from SHIMMER, Femmes Fatales & Pro-Wrestling EVE, including a quick exclusive chat with Nikki Storm, who had a big coming out party at the last EVE show, solidifying her as one to watch in the European scene in 2011.

    Great interview as always from Stew & Lee. Very insightful questions. Found it very interesting that Punk was the one who recommended Serena to Prazak. Serena was lovely as ever.

    You guys always deliver great interviews. Serena is just pure greatness. I also really enjoy the short Nikki Storm interview. Hope to hear more from her in the future. I basically understood all of what Nikki was saying but one word. Was she saying “girls” or “ghettos”?. I think she said girls.

    Great show! Don’t worry about the accents. I love hearing different accents. I followed all of what Nikki was saying. Serena is so positive! That’s refreshing.

  • Jennifer

    ECWROH: Yup she said girls.

    Excellent job guys, once again. I love listening to these interviews, it’s more interesting to hear from indy women since their passion for the business really shines through. Serena’s such a sweet woman, she deserves the best no matter where she goes or what she does. It’s a shame WWE let a gem like that slip through their hands but it was SHIMMER’s (and indy promotions’) gain as the moment she confronted Skater was truly electric!

    And it wasn’t too hard understanding Nikki Storm, that mini-interview with her was a big bonus!

    Nice to see a Scottish girl making some waves. Shame about the bad language!
