After being released by WWE in April, Serena Deeb has become one of the most featured females in wrestling as she won the NWA Women's Championship and appeared on AEW television.
Deeb captured the NWA Women's Championship from Thunder Rosa on the October 27 episode of UWN Primetime Live and has gone on to defend the title multiple times in an AEW ring.
Speaking on The Hashtag Show, Deeb discussed the crossover between AEW and NWA.
"Doing this work with NWA and AEW, it's something special because cross-promotion hasn't been done in wrestling in awhile. To be part of that and someone who represents this historic company in the NWA and now bringing that title to Dynamite and defending it against AEW women, I'm super excited about that," she said.
Along with NWA, AEW has had crossover with IMPACT Wrestling. Deeb believes cross-promotion between all companies is a good thing and she hopes New Japan Pro-Wrestling will be involved in the future.
"This stuff with IMPACT is exciting as well. That's another cross-promotion where we can do some special things. New Japan is on that list as well. It's always been a dream of mine to wrestle on a New Japan show. It hasn't always been a promotion that showcases women, but the way that wrestling has moved and evolved, more places that, historically speaking, didn't have a lot of women's action are more open to it. I would love to wrestle for New Japan," she said.
As for the near future, Deeb noted that the National Wrestling Alliance will probably begin taping shows again in the coming months.
"For the foreseeable future, I'm really excited. NWA is probably starting back up again with some tapings in January or early next year. My intention as champion is to defend it all over the world. I would love to be a platform to showcase other women. The possibilities are endless," said Deeb.
The NWA shutdown during the pandemic, suspending its Powerrr tapings in March. Along with AEW, the promotion has partnered with UWN to run events. NWA currently airs matches from past events each week on its Shockwave series.
It is unknown when NWA will resume again.
Deeb is scheduled to team with Big Swole on Wednesday's Dynamite to take on Ivelisse & Diamante.
