Former WWE Diva Serena Deeb recently spoke with Newsday, here are some highlights:
On Her Time in WWE: “I don’t really know what was going on in their minds, in my bosses’ minds, during my time in WWE. I think that the plans were there to eventually have me break out and be in the ring. But the role that I played on television, that wasn’t part of it?So it was just wrong place, wrong time as far as a wrestling role goes. It was definitely a lesson in patience and I had to know and trust that it was just not the right time, and that it was for a reason. Of course, I was very anxious to wrestle. I always wanted to. And the few opportunities I was given on the road to wrestle, I was ecstatic.”
On Her Issues With Concussions: “I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about it right now, especially because everything just happened. I’m 25-years-old and what I always imagined was that my career would go for as long as I wanted it to, and that I’d have that in my control. Now I’m suddenly being put in the position where it’s not in my control, and where my body is maybe not going to last as long as I wanted it to and as long as I idealized it lasting. So there’s definitely a large element of worry right now.”
On C.M. Punk’s recent success: “I could see that this guy believed in himself. I think that’s the number one thing that leads to success in this business, is that belief in yourself. If you don’t your just going to get eaten alive and you’re going to sink?Punk obviously has done the opposite of that, because he’s always known how good he is and how talented he is and he’s never doubted that. He’s always believed that he should be on top, and that’s exactly where he deserves to be. And he’s worked very hard to get to that point.”
