At NWA When Our Shadows Fall, Serena Deeb wrestled her first official match for the National Wrestling Alliance. On this show, she defended the NWA World Women’s Championship against Kamille. While Deeb has been heavily featured at All Elite Wrestling, even defending the title on multiple occasions, Kamille dominantly established herself as the number one contender for said title. Despite Deeb bringing over a decade and a half of wrestling experience to the match, she was unable to overcome Kamille, who walked away with the NWA World Women’s title.

This NWA World Women’s Championship match was a contrast of styles. While Deeb relied on her quickness and technical expertise, Kamille’s offense was more power-oriented. Kamille worked on slowly picking away at the champion, dominating much of the match. However. Deeb’s resolve and wit kept her in the match. The match concluded when Kamille, following several missed attempts, executed her signature spear, following up with the three-count. “From the brickhouse to the penthouse,” as stated by to Joe Galli on commentary, Kamille stood tall as the new NWA World Women’s Champion.
This victory marks the very first NWA World Women’s Championship win for Kamille. She debuted for the promotion in 2020 before aligning herself with Strictly Business, led by Nick Aldis. From there, Kamille continued to wrestle without being pinned or submitted, picking up huge victories over the likes of Jennacide and Thunder Rosa along the way. Given her sheer dominance under the NWA banner, one must wonder who will step up to challenge the blonde powerhouse of Strictly Business next.
Kamille’s victory over Serena Deeb at NWA When Our Shadows Fall ends the latter’s World Women’s title reign at 228 days. She won the championship this past October at a UWN Primetime Live event, defeating Thunder Rosa to do so. Since then, she successfully defended the gold in AEW, putting on highly-regarded matches with such opponents as Red Velvet and inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion Riho. Whether this title loss will lead to additional NWA appearances for Deeb or a more committed business relationship with AEW remains to be seen.
