Undisputedly the queen of tennis, Serena Williams, after majestically reigning over the WTA charts for almost two decades might be deciding to set her foot in a different camp now.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion who is known for her aggressive baseline game walked away from tennis back in 2022 after showcasing her talents for the final time at the US Open 2022.
Post-retirement, the ‘King of WTA’ hasn’t been very active around spheres of sporting life but a recent memento sent out to her suggests that the American seemingly might consider conquering a different sport altogether, Wrestling.
According to a recent photo surfacing the internet, it is speculated that the 41-year-old might set grace in the wrestling rings and enter the widely recognized WrestleMania, edition 39, in April this season.
This comes in connection to the corroboration put together after the photo of a WWE belt with her name ‘Serena Williams’ engraved on it went viral. The belt itself was sent by the Wrestling organization to the American tennis icon in recognition of her stupendous talent and untainted legacy.
Despite her not being familiarized with the wrestling world and having no prior experience in the sport, her exceptionally good muscle build and athleticism could prove lethal to the sport’s competing professionals, additionally helping her advance.

While Serena Williams might be getting ready to set camp at WrestleMania 39 this season, her opponent might not particularly be deary and could face some resistance because her rumored rival for the match is Charlotte Flair.
Daughter of ring legend and professional wrestler Ric Flair, Charlotte Flair, has been crowned as the World Champion a ridiculous 14 times and is a devious opponent who is known to perform at her full potential. She also carries the advantage of being a certified trainer and is a legitimate athlete. Back in the day, Charlotte was also a part of fellow wrestler Triple H’s WrestleMania XXX entrance.
