The resurgence of Serena Deeb continues. It has been announced today that she is to return to Japan to compete for Wrestling New Classic. It is a return to work for a promotion for TAJIRI after she made a number of trips to the Far East for the defunct SMASH outfit. Her first match back will be on July 25, where she will take on WNC Women’s Champion Lin Byron at Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo.
The 26-year old’s last match in Japan was in the final of the SMASH Divas Championship tournament, with Kana finally getting a win over her rival to become the first titleholder – a match which she added to her Twitter yesterday, which in hindsight was a massive hint. A month later, Deeb suffered a massive concussion at SHIMMER‘s volume 44 taping, with the diagnosis being that she may not wrestle again. However, she made her comeback in March at TNA‘s Knockouts show – which is yet to be broadcast on PPV – and then returned to SHIMMER on the volume 53 iPPV in early April.
