Deville may have hinted that she will be back to “reinvent, dedicate, and attract the same. Settling for less just ain’t in my game. You wanna be with me ya gotta carry the name.”

After her debut in WWE, Sonya Deville competed mostly in a tag team. She was a competitor in WWE Tough Enough. She then competed in NXT for two years. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, alongside Paige, formed a trio called “Absolution”. Rose and Deville then went on to form “Fire and Desire.”

The tag-team feuded against the likes of Bayley and Sasha Banks, the IIconics, and the Kabuki Warriors. However, the duo broke up during WrestleMania. Their feud ended with Deville leaving WWE after SummerSlam.

Hopefully, Sonya’s departure is not permanent and she will be back in the squared circle soon.
