Former WWE diva set to return to the ring
Feb 12, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
Serena Deeb will be in action at the SHIMMER 53 event as part of WrestleCon on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 (the day before WrestleMania 29) at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ, and will also compete at the SHIMMER 54-57 tapings on Saturday & Sunday, April 13th & 14th at the Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL!
One of the most beloved athletes in SHIMMER history, Serena has had many memorable moments throughout her SHIMMER tenure. Serena debuted back in May of 2006 at SHIMMER 5, and slowly climbed the ranks to eventually achieve main event status. Some of Serena’s truly breakout matches were her bouts against 1st SHIMMER Champion Sara Del Rey. It was at SHIMMER 22 that Serena pulled off one of the biggest wins of her career when she hit her signature spear on Del Rey, to hand Sara a rare pinfall loss in SHIMMER competition. That victory earned her a shot at 2nd SHIMMER Champion MsChif in the main event of SHIMMER 23.
Following a stint in WWE, Serena shocked the Berwyn Eagles Club crowd by making a surprise return at SHIMMER 33. She quickly became involved in a heated rivalry with Portia Perez, resulting in several singles and tag team clashes against Portia and her partner Nicole Matthews. The main event of SHIMMER 41 featured an epic contest between Serena and 3rd SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles for the title. Serena then went on to settle her score with Perez at SHIMMER 43 after nailing Portia with the spear off of a table.
Serena was unfortunately forced onto the sidelines during October of 2011 after suffering a concussion. She wisely did not immediately return to active competition, to allow for her body to fully heal before choosing to step back inside the ring. After an 18 month absence, Serena will make her highly anticipated return to SHIMMER action on April 6th at WrestleCon, less than eight weeks away!
SHIMMER 53 will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (355 Plaza Drive) in Secaucus, NJ. Bell time for this afternoon event is 12pm (Noon).
