AEW Star Makes Surprise Return Backstage


AEW star Serena Deeb has been spotted backstage at a recent show following her long absence from the company.

Fightful Select offered information on Deeb’s status with the company during her absence which has now lasted one year. Over the summer AEW sources noted that Deeb was not injured but Deeb is said to have noted that she’s suffered a serious injury and has been trying to get cleared to return.

AEW sources did admit that there had been a “serious disagreement with management” that led to her disappearing from television. Deeb was said to be “very vocal” about how she had been used by the company and it was said that her comments veered into disrespect as she accused Tony Khan of cutting time from her matches without telling her until she had already got in the ring.

Serena Deeb makes AEW return – backstage at least

Fightful Select has now reported that following her prolonged absence from the company Serena Deeb was backstage at the 14th of October edition of Collision. It was noted that while Deeb hasn’t been seen backstage all year, her appearance in Toledo, Ohio was also not somewhere she’d just likely be visiting indicating she could be close to returning to the fold.

Serena Deeb is still listed as part of the women’s roster on AEW’s official website despite her last match for the promotion coming in October 2022. On that occasion, she defeated Haley J on an episode of the now-defunct Dark: Elevation show.
