Is Serena Deeb “all elite” now? According to new comments by Chris Jericho, it appears to be the case.
On the latest episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho opened the show by introducing Thunder Rosa, his guest on the show. During the intro he put over Thunder Rosa’s match with Serena Deeb on Dynamite, and also claimed it got Serena signed by AEW.
“Right now I’ve got NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa, she had a hell of a debut on Dynamite last week in a great match against Serena Deeb. It got Serena signed actually, I believe,” Jericho said, “and then had another great match challenging AEW Women’s Champion Shida for the title at All Out on Saturday.”
Jericho did not go in to any more detail about Deeb’s status; AEW has not commented publicly on her status at this time.
Prior to the Dynamite appearance, Deeb’s last match was in the 2017 WWE Mae Young Classic tournament. She had also been working as a coach at the WWE Performance Center since February 2018 but she was released on April 15 amid the company-wide cutbacks due to COVID-19.
Serena posted the following comments after her Dynamite match against Thunder Rosa:
Your support is heard, felt, and appreciated. Thank you @AEWrestling for the platform to do what I love most in the world, and thank you to all who watched and enjoyed it. Can’t wait to do it again. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/fwwfzNtufJ
