• Former WWE Diva Becomes A Producer In AEW
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, former WWE Diva Serena Deeb revealed that she is going to take a Producer position in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what she had to say:
“In the meantime, when I was kind of sitting on the sidelines I stepped into the coaching role and the producing role. Kind of like the stuff I was doing before at the other company.
I’m helping them with their matches, I am on headset next to Tony [Khan] calling their matches, talking to the truck, doing all of that.
I love that too and, you know what? That has an exhilarating component in itself. Like, especially when you really help and then you watch them go out there and they kill it. You feel like you’re part of that, it’s very rewarding.”
Serena wrestled on the WWE main roster in 2010 as a member of The Straight Edge Society and returned years later to become a Coach at the WWE Performance Center from 2018 till 2020.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (December 22, 1984) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first-ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
