More On Serena Deeb

Serena Deeb has had a pretty long and colorful career as a female wrestler.
I did a write up on her back in March of 2008, when everyone knew her as Serena Deeb, but now you may be more familiar with her as Mia Mancini, Serena Mancini or just Serena, a member of CM Punk’s “Straight Edge Society” group along with Luke Gallows.
And as you probably know, she shaved her head on her WWE TV debut on January 22, 2010, as part of Punk’s crusade to get people into the straight edge lifestyle.

But before Serena went all "Molly Holly" on us, she was a respected Indy wrestler.
One of the wrestling rumors is that the reason Serena was moved up to the main roster was that she was willing to shave her head.
That showed Brand loyalty.

Before moving up to the WWE main roster, she wrestled at Florida Championship Wrestling, where she was the Queen of FCW, before finally loosing the crown (literally) to AJ Lee.
She was the Memphis Championship Wrestling, MCW Women's Champion once, the NWA France Women's Champion and the Ohio Valley Wrestling Women's Champion six times.

Serena also worked for Shimmer Women Athletes, Ring of Honor, did an appearance on TNA Wrestling (as part of Awesome Kong's $25,000 Fan Challenge), did some work for Pro Wrestling Syndicate, when to France to wrestle for the International Catch Wrestling Alliance and worked for American Wrestling Rampage.

Actually what got me thinking about Serena was me running across this match posted by HybridDolphinELPS on YouTube of "Mia" Mancini taking on WWE Diva Gail Kim.
Usually Hybrid gets mentioned on my Joshi blog, but this was too good to pass up.

And no, I am not switching my focus off the Indy female wrestlers, it's just that Serena is one of the ladies that has worked her way up through the ranks.
I just hope she isnt wasted with the WWE like a lot of other good female talent is.

Another justification of posting this match here, is that not only did Serena work her way up through the ranks, so did Gail.
You all probably know that Gail started off her wrestling career as the masked La Felina, on the Canadian independent circuit.
Gail wrestled for the Indys in Canada for two years, working for wrestling promotions like Apocalypse Wrestling Federation and Border City Wrestling before winding up in the WWE.

And, I was really impressed with this match.
I thought both ladies turned in a performance that looked better than a lot better than some of the women's wrestling matches you see on Raw, SmackDown! or ECW.

Again this was posted by HybridDolphinELPS, and you can see more at his channel here:

And if you want to keep up with Serena, there's a lot of ways thanks to the internet.

Female Wrestling - Krissy Vaine

It's been a long time (since 2007 actually) that I have done anything on female pro wrestler Krissy Vaine.
And that's a shame too, since Krissy (Kristin Eubanks) was born only a few miles from me here in NC!

Krissy made her pro wrestling debut back in 2003 as Special K.
But before that, she had been a manager since 2000.
She has worked for wrestling promotions like CWF Mid Atlantic, Professional Girl Wrestling Association, Women Extreme Wrestling, Memphis Wrestling, the National Wrestling Alliance and Shimmer Women Athletes.
In 2006 she signed a developmental contract with the WWE and went to Deep South Wrestling.
She had a pretty good run there, becoming the "General Manager for DSW".
While she was there, she had a feud with Angel Williams (who you may know better as TNA Knockout Angelina Love) and was in DSW at the same time as Nattie Neidhart (Natalya), Brooke Adams, Tracy Taylor and Shantelle Taylor (Taylor Wilde).

Krissy only appeared on SmackDown! once, attacking Torrie Wilson after her match with Victoria.
Sadly, she and her boyfriend Ryan O'Reilly left the WWE the next month.

Krissy is still wrestling on the Indy circuit and is also a writer for Diva Dirt.
She has her own podcast there called The Krissy Vaine Project.

If you want to keep up with Krissy you can catch her at Diva Dirt:
Her MySpace page:
Or her Twitter account:

After all this time, I still think she is one of the prettiest women in Pro wrestling!
