WWE News: WWE releases Serena of the Straight Edge Society group

By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

PWTorch has confirmed the release of Smackdown Diva Serena (Serena Deeb). WWE has not made an official announcement on Serena's release at this point.

Sources in WWE are saying the reason for Serena's release was because she was not "living out" the Straight Edge Society gimmick in public.

Serena, who was inserted into C.M. Punk's SES group in January, had her last WWE TV match last Friday on Smackdown.

The storyline for the match was that she would have been kicked out of the SES, along with Luke Gallows, if they lost a tag match to Kelly Kelly and Big Show. Serena and Gallows won the match to remain in the group on TV.

Caldwell's Analysis: We haven't confirmed the following, but I wouldn't be surprised if the storyline in July where Serena was "caught on security camera" having a drink at a bar, followed by C.M. Punk questioning her "loyalty to the SES cause," was a message to Serena, with art imitating life.

What's next for SES? It might be time to disband the group, with Luke Gallows and Joseph Mercury not adding to the group at this point, especially when they were fed to Big Show at Summerslam. The other option is recruitment or bringing in Darren Young, who was kicked out of Nexus on last week's Raw, and has history with Punk from NXT Season One.

What's next for the thinning women's division on Smackdown? It might be in WWE's best interest to combine their Raw and Smackdown divisions and have one title, but they did take a look at developmental women's wrestler A.J. Lee on the weekend house shows as a potential call-up. Serena wasn't being utilized in the women's division anyways.
