Both a “heated disagreement” and an injury have been touted as the reason behind her lengthy absence.
Serena Deeb has been absent from AEW since October of last year, with her last match coming against Haley J on an episode of Dark: Elevation. Deeb had previously been considered by many to be one of AEW’s best women’s wrestlers in terms of her in-ring ability, and thus many fans have been questioning the reasoning behind her absence.
Fightful Select have now provided an insight into this matter, revealing that sources within the company believe Deeb is off TV due to a heated disagreement with management, although Deeb herself has told those close to her that she’s dealing with an injury.
“Sources in AEW have said that one of the reasons Serena Deeb has been gone from TV is a heated disagreement with AEW managemnt. However, Deeb has told people close to her that she’d sustained an injury, and that’s why she’s missed time.”-Fightful
Deeb was ranked #11 on PWI’s list of the Top 100 Women’s Wrestlers in the world back in 2021, and so it’s understandable that many have questions as to the circumstances surrounding her lengthy spell on the sidelines.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the status of Serena Deeb in AEW as soon as we hear more.
