Rumour confirmed - Serena released by WWE
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling

Earlier this week, word began spreading around the web that Serena Deeb had been released by WWE. This rumour proved to be true, as WWE officially announced on Friday that it had parted ways with the female member of the Straight Edge Society.

"WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Diva Serena. We wish Serena the best in all future endeavors," the Fed posted on their website.

The confirmation by WWE comes days after Deeb's release rumours started gaining momentum through social media. Deeb herself perhaps added fuel to the fire on Tuesday, when, through her own Twitter account (@serenadeeb), she posted that, "You are the best fans in ANY universe."

Deeb had not been with WWE's main roster long. In fact, her debut was somewhat inconspicuous. During a series of head shavings performed by CM Punk and Luke Gallows in the early days of the SES, Deeb was seemingly just another member of the audience who was "plucked" from her seat in the name of redemption by Punk on the January 22nd episode of Smackdown. While others who had their heads shaved did not return, Deeb did the following week and soon became a fixture of the three- (and later four-) person faction.

During the SES's run, Deeb would frequently appear at ringside for Punk or Gallows' matches, but barely appeared in action herself. Her first bout took place just one week ago, on August 20, in a tag match with Gallows against Big Show and Kelly Kelly, a match which Serena won for her team.

Deeb, however, is not an unfamiliar name to wrestling faithful. Deeb's wrestling career dates back to 2005, when she began training and working for Ohio Valley Wrestling. She would later spend time with SHIMMER, Ring of Honor and was also brought to TNA for a couple appearances, including one bout with Awesome Kong. Deeb was also seen in Wrestlelicious as Paige Webb. These bouts were broadcast during Deeb's time in WWE.
