Serena Deeb aligned herself with CM Punk as a member of The Straight Edge Society back in 2009. She eventually was fired by the company as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts last year.
Deeb recently spoke on AEW Unrestricted, where she talked about her time working with CM Punk as part of The Straight Edge Society.
She revealed how CM Punk’s personality was backstage in WWE, adding that it was very strong. She also said that Punk fought for what he believed in and never apologized for it.
“It was a learning experience working with somebody like Punk. He has a very strong personality, and he has very strong beliefs, so he will fight for those beliefs until the day he dies and he will not apologize for it. I think that’s what got him really far in wrestling and gave him a lot of success. Not only that, but that’s a quality that I think really worked for him. He would speak up, and he would speak his mind. If he didn’t like something, he would communicate that. There were several times when he didn’t like something and it was changed.”
Serena Deeb is currently the NWA Women’s Champion and a mainstay in the AEW Women’s Division.
