9/21 Update: This has now been confirmed by AEW via Twitter:

Original: On a new episode of Talk Is Jericho with Thunder Rosa as a quest, Jericho may have spoiled the official signing of a new talent. During the broadcast, he stated the following:
“I got NWA Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa, she had a hell of a debut on Dynamite last week and a great match against Serena Deeb, got Serena Deeb signed, I believe…”
AEW and anyone above has not confirmed that she has signed yet, but we did see Serena make her debut in AEW last week. Following the match, Deeb took to Twitter to post the following:
Your support is heard, felt, and appreciated. Thank you @AEWrestling for the platform to do what I love most in the world, and thank you to all who watched and enjoyed it. Can’t wait to do it again. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/fwwfzNtufJ

The last time Serena was heavily involved in wrestling was in 2010 during CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society storyline. Following that, she was released shortly after in the same year. Deeb did return to the company in 2017 for the Mae Young Classic. Most recently, she was a trainer at the WWE Performance Center before being among those released due to the COVID-19 budget cuts in April.
Jason’s Jest: I hope it’s true that she has in fact signed with AEW. Their women’s division is sorely lacking and in need of new talent and fire in he division. With her experience in the industry and ring, she could be a huge benefit for AEW.
