Considering that Serena Deeb‘s return was announced yesterday, let’s have a Retro featuring her days in Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Serena uprooted herself from Virginia to Kentucky in March 2005 at the tender age of 18 to follow her dream of wrestling, and stayed there until May 2009 when she signed with WWE. Success came relatively quickly, as less than a year after her debut, she uprooted ODB to become OVW’s second ever Women’s Champion, and was the first women to win the belt on six different occasions – Josette Bynum pipped that achievement in 2011 with seven reigns.
Speaking of Bynum, it is she who Deeb faces in this Retro from May 23, 2008, under her former moniker of Josie. It is a match which took place at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom with Josie’s Women’s Championship on the line, and sees Serena vying to win the belt for a second time – though the commentators say it’s the third.
