In a post on her official Instagram account, All Elite Wrestling star Serena Deeb provided an update on why she has missed over a year of in-ring action, noting that since last October she has had three seizures, but has since been cleared to make her in-ring return.

“Since last October, I’ve had a series of three unprovoked seizures, this has been a really dramatic time period for me, and has affected my career and life. In a lot of ways, it’s been really scary for me, I’ve seen a lot of different doctors and had every test imaginable. For the longest time, nobody could tell me why this happened. Being out of the ring has been really challenging for me, I love professional wrestling with everything in me and I miss performing and wrestling.

I’ve kept this very private, and then I started learning more about seizures and how much more common it is, and I never realized how many more people experience seizures. I have so much empathy, I know how scary it is, and I just want to send a message that you’re not alone and there is always light at the end of the tunnel, I want to encourage you.

A big reason why I wanted to talk to you today is because I do have some news, it’s good news, it’s great news. I saw my neurologist recently, and he told me that I’ve recovered, I’m healthy and I am officially cleared to wrestle, that means I’m ready to return. Hopefully, the next time you guys see me, I’ll be in the ring doing what I do best. I can’t wait to wrestle, and can’t wait to show you what the Professor, what Serena Deeb is made of.”
