NWA World Women’s Champion Serena Deeb took part in the post-AEW FulL Gear 2020 media scrum and discussed several topics, including the working relationship between All Elite Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance.

“Well, I mean if you think back on pro wrestling in the territory days, it was people were just swapping around, they were travelling here, travelling there, working with different people. When wrestling became really monopolized and separated, I think it was to the detriment of talent and fans too, because so and so is here and here and so and so is here, you can’t see that match. I think this cooperation, this partnership between the NWA and AEW is super powerful and I think it’s going to change wrestling from a women’s standpoint.

I’m really excited about it, because I think the AEW women’s roster is really growing and it has so much potential. People coming in from the outside, when you’re in wrestling, it only helps you to wrestle other people, other women and other men, it just helps you. The more you get in the ring with different people, the more you become a more well-rounded wrestler, so I think with this partnership and different women coming in and different women going elsewhere, it’s going to just benefit everybody. I think the fans are really excited about it too and it just keeps it very interesting, because you can’t, you know, there are things happening now, going to PrimeTime Live and winning the Championship and then bringing it on Dynamite and defending it a week later and defending it tonight on The Buy-In and you know, it’s things that people just haven’t seen for a long time, I think it’s really fun and really powerful.”
