Serena Deeb has been dealing with a knee injury.
The women’s wrestling veteran took to social media, releasing a video via her official Instagram page this weekend to reveal the news and give her fans some details on the situation.
Featured below are some of the highlights of comments she made in the video.
On how she tried to work through the injury but eventually she hit a roadblock: “Recently, I hit a roadblock and I wanted to address it and be honest. I see everything. ‘Serena should be on Dynamite more. Serena should be on pay-per-view more. Serena is the best.’ You’re right. The truth is, right now, I’m hurt. I’m injured. My knee has been playing up for a while and bothering me in matches. I tried to fight through the pain. Was it the smartest thing to do? Probably, but that’s what I do.
She then cuts a promo stating why she is the best in the world: “I’m Serena Deeb. I’m from the old school. What I was taught is that if you could walk to the ring, you could step (in the ring) and do your job. I can’t even freakin’ walk, but I’m sitting in a wheelchair, in the ring, trying to get better. I’m nothing like the girls today that break a nail and take six weeks off. Do you know why I’m the best? I’ll give you a perfect example; first thing I do after my matches is I walk to the back and I find a Tully Blanchard or Arn Anderson or Dean Malenko and I ask, ‘How can I improve and get better?’ Do you know what the rest of these girls do? They run to the back, bury their faces in their cellphones and see what the Internet says. Then they wonder why they don’t get any better. The truth is, not one of them can lace my boots, not one of them is in my league. Yes, right now, I’m injury and I’m hurt, but I will be back to AEW and I will be back to once again be champion and I will remind each and everyone one of you that not only am I the best women’s wrestler in the world, I’m the best wrestler in the world. I am Serena Deeb, the woman of a thousand holds.”
