Former WWE Diva Serena Deeb, who has also wrestled for TNA, ROH, SHINE, Japanese Joshi promotion STARDOM, and most notably, independent promotion SHIMMER, posted the following on her Facebook page today, announcing her retirement from wrestling:
Tomorrow I wrestle at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. This will be my final match. I have opted to peacefully and humbly close my career, with the deep honor & respect that I was brought up with. I infinitely thank OVW for raising me in such a way in this business- it is a lost art.
I am so grateful to every person who I have formed memories with over the past 10 years. So many of you are my family.
I fell in love with pro wrestling when I was very young. I experienced many incredible moments, as well as countless heartbreaks. I got to have my Wrestlemania moment in front of 72,000 people. I have been blessed with 7 trips to Japan & I have chosen to close this chapter of my life in this beautiful country.
There is no remorse in this decision. I have simply grown. I love you all. Thank you.
