AEW’s Sereena Deeb Teases Reunion With CM Punk
Could the Straight Edge Society ride again?
Although not being a force for very long, the Straight Edge Society in WWE left a long lasting impression on many fans, as the group of CM Punk, Luke Gallows, joey Mercury, and Serena spread forth their gospel in WWE.
Now, two members of the SES are plying their trade in AEW, and in conversation with Wrestling Inc.’s Nick Hausman, Serena Deeb teased a reunion between herself and CM Punk could one day be on the cards:
"You know, we have a great relationship,” started Deeb. “We obviously go back a long way. We did some really good business together over the years. I met Punk in I want to say 2005 in OVW when he first reported there and Paul Heyman was booking the show. Punk was his guy and Punk was the driving force behind getting me to Shimmer for the first time, which at the time was, as a female wrestler, that was the indie that you aspired to go to because that was the best. From Shimmer that got me to Ring of Honor. So Punk really guided me and really helped support me and getting to all these places before WWE. Then of course The Straight Edge Society. I think because we had that great relationship and that friendship and that foundation, we had a chemistry already just from all of that and it translated on screen. I constantly get tagged on social media and people still love the Straight Edge Society and it was over a decade ago. It's crazy.
“So I love having him in the locker room. I think he is somebody that all the guys and all the women should be asking for feedback. I ask him to watch my matches. He doesn't always get the chance to because he's obviously doing a million things on the show, but you know, if there's someone you want to go to for feedback, especially from a storytelling perspective, dude's a master storyteller. I mean, he blows my mind with some of the stuff he does. So I think he's clearly one of the best to ever do it. We have a great relationship. We talk every week, and everything's great and yeah, we might see a reunion someday, you know.”
