As a guest on Busted Open Radio, Deeb was compared to Bryan Danielson as the female version of him by Mark Henry. Deeb has been heavily working both backstage and in the ring for AEW. She is currently sitting at the top spot of the rankings list and is positioned to be the next to face Thunder Rosa for the AEW Women’s World Championship.
Deeb spoke on her role backstage,
“When someone comes to you and asks for help on an idea or something like that, it’s a huge compliment. It’s important to pay attention at these shows in a coach role so you know people’s strengths and weakness, how I can help them, their moveset. You have to know all these details. If you don’t know that, you can’t really help somebody on a personal level. I try to pay attention to our women’s division and what everyone is doing. I have to be dialed in,” she said.

She is then asked if she actively will advise a talent backstage to pay attention to something in particular.
“If I feel it necessary, I will, but everybody has to make their choices as well. The women that do, it shows in their work and growth and how quickly they improve. [Mark Henry] is at the monitor. Guess who else is front row at the monitor for every match? Bryan Danielson, the best in the world. (CM) Punk, MJF. That’s the difference. Nobody is too big to watch everybody’s work. That’s what makes for a great workplace; everybody helping everybody. We have that at AEW and it’s great these guys are here now and have so much experience. It’s a detriment if you are not finding Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Jerry Lynn, [Henry], Punk, Bryan, William Regal. If you’re not finding these guys after your match…I bring my laptop and sit down with Dean or Arn and watch my match. If you’re not doing that, what are we doing? You have to.”
She would continue to discuss how certain women in AEW are benefitting from learning and growing under the tutelage of their trainers. Most specifically Cargill and Red Velvet who have excelled from the training of Danielson.
“I believe some really are. Jade is a great example. Jade and (Red) Velvet are in there with Bryan training. He’s giving them his time and you can see it. Jade, for how long she’s been in the game, is doing really good. She’s going to continue to rise and she’s putting in the work. Some are, some maybe aren’t. I do see a lot of the women going to Bryan or whoever they have that type of friendship with. I do believe it’s happening.”
After a rivalry of their own, Cargill and Velvet have now formed a faction with Kiera Hogan. The Baddies were in trios action on this week’s Rampage as they defeated Willow Nightingale, Trish Adora, and Skye Blue.
Cargill recently won her 30th victory in singles action against Marina Shafir.
