Serena Deeb Would Love To Be A Player-Coach For AEW

Serena Deeb sees herself in multiple roles in AEW. 

On September 21 it was announced Deeb had signed with AEW. Just over a month later on the October 27 episode of UWN Primetime live, Deeb won the NWA Women's Championship. She has consistently defended the NWA Women's Championship on AEW Dynamite over the past couple of months.

Speaking to Wrestling Steel Chair, Deeb discussed her future in AEW as a potential coach while she continued to defend the NWA Women's Title. 

“Absolutely, that has been discussed, and it’s something that I feel great about," replied Deeb when asked if she had discussed coaching in AEW with Tony Khan. "I love coaching, and I love helping. I’ve always thought, even in my time coaching at WWE, before this, it would be really cool and really powerful to take on a player-coach role where I’m able to wrestle and get in the ring, do that part of it while also helping out a little bit more behind the scenes and kind of helping scout for women that are out there that might not have been seen yet. I think taking on that role especially when independent shows start running again, pending the whole COVID situation. I’m hoping that I can step into a little bit more of that player-coach role, and I can continue contributing in that way. To touch on your point, that is something that I’m really interested in doing, and I think the feeling is mutual from AEW. The women’s division is in a really amazing growth period right now, where the women are stepping up, and there are more women coming in, and there are hungry women who are working really hard to improve. I would love for my matches and my ring work to just help accelerate that process.”

Deeb will once again defend her NWA Women's Championship on Dynamite when she battles Tay Conti at New Year's Smash night two. 

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW New Year's Smash night two beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
