NWA World Women’s Champion, Serena Deeb, has lifted the lid on where she sees her career headed next and why she’s not content with just one piece of gold around her waist.

In recent months, Serena Deeb has experienced something of a career resurgence and in a very brief period of time. After being released by WWE, the talent made her AEW debut on the September 2 Dynamite and just over a month later found herself crowned NWA World Women’s Champion.

The victory came as pure shock to those watching, especially as Thunder Rosa had a year left on her contract with the National Wrestling Alliance.

Deeb has since proved one of the most reliable women between the ropes, spearheading a revolution for women’s wrestling in AEW as the company looks to overhaul its female league after much criticism.

However, the woman in question is not done or content with just one piece of gold and joined the cast of Women’s Wrestling Talk to declare her intentions to target Hikaru Shida and the AEW Women’s Championship:

“That is absolutely what I’m gunning for. I think, you know, it would be really powerful to hold two championships at the same time, especially for two of the top companies in the world. When I first joined the AEW roster, I 100% had my sights set on being the champion. Then there was a crossover with NWA and I started doing stuff with them. So, it’s 100% what I’m looking at and where I’m looking at going.”

With her sights sets on being a double champion, the first dual NWA and AEW Women’s Champion in history nonetheless, Deeb moved on to who she would like to meet most in the middle of the ring:

“So many, I mean there is an entire roster of women that I haven’t had the chance to get in the ring with before. But, I would say first and foremost, Hikaru Shida, the AEW women’s champion is someone that… I really like her wrestling style and I think she has been a great champion.”

Hikaru Shida vs. Serena Deeb is a match AEW’s women’s division and its fanbase is crying out for. With the emphasis on overhauling the division, there are few better options to highlight what can be done that a match of this caliber.
