Melina makes her first in-ring appearance on Saturday’s Womens Superstars Unleashed show in Deer Park, New York. Melina will face a mystery opponent, as her original opponent Serena Deeb is out with a concussion. The show is available on iPPV.
Former WWE Diva Serena Deeb recently spoke with Newsday “I don’t really know what was going on in their minds, in my bosses’ minds, during my time in WWE. I think that the plans were there to eventually have me break out and be in the ring. But the role that I played on television, that wasn’t part of it…So it was just wrong place, wrong time as far as a wrestling role goes. It was definitely a lesson in patience and I had to know and trust that it was just not the right time, and that it was for a reason. Of course, I was very anxious to wrestle. I always wanted to. And the few opportunities I was given on the road to wrestle, I was ecstatic.” (more…)
WWE Smackdown Diva and straight Edge Society Girl Serena is released from WWE suggested by the sources. Serena’s sudden release from World Wrestling Entertainment is being compared to Mickie James’ dismissal from the organization earlier this year as both involved matters concerning behavioral problems on the road.
Serena had been warned several times by management to tighten up her road behavior as she was putting her job at risk. It ultimately reached a point where WWE had no choice but to let her go, just as a big push was planned no less.
It is said that the episode of SmackDown in which Serena was caught drinking alcohol at a bar was designed to send a message to her over her partying habits. An irate CM Punk immediately chastised her following the airing of the video, but she was forgiven the following week. Luke Gallows, however, refused to follow suit and walked out on his fellow Straight Edge Society members.
News of her departure is being kept under wraps internally, but an announcement is expected to be made this weekend.
