NWA Women's Champion, AEW competitor and former WWE Superstar Serena Deeb recently appeared as a guest on AEW Unrestricted, the official podcast of All Elite Wrestling, for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During her appearance on the popular weekly program hosted by AEW commentator Tony Schiavone and AEW referee Aubrey Edwards, Deeb spent some time reflecting on her time working alongside Phil "CM Punk" Brooks during their respective runs in WWE as part of the "Straight Edge Society."
Featured below are some of the highlights of Serena Deeb talking about her memories of working with CM Punk during her appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast.
On her experience working with CM Punk during her run in WWE: "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."
On what she learned while working alongside Punk: "So, I learned a lot from him just in terms of confidence. He’s somebody who I really admire in that in that realm. I think favorite moments – obviously doing WrestleMania. Punk wrestled Rey Mysterio, and probably my favorite moment the entire time managing was in that match when Punk was on the ropes ready to take the 619, and Rey hit the ropes. I hopped up on the apron, and there were 72,000 people there in Phoenix. The boos – literally across my back, I felt these boos just standing on the apron. This little 5’4″ girl in this huge stadium, and the people were so mad in that moment, and it was just an awesome feeling."
