I’m not proud of the things I’ve done and what I’ve said, but it’s a new year and a new me. I want to put the past behind me.”

She even slightly taunted Mandy Rose as she said, “It’s not like I’m sitting here bitter about the fact that my former best friend beat me in a loser leaves WWE match and went to RAW and joined a random new tag team and left my career in shambles.

“I’m grateful and happy for the opportunity. I want to learn and I want to help you, genuinely. I feel like you need it,” Deville concluded.

Sonya Deville will act as an official on SmackDown

Deville had to leave WWE last year at SummerSlam as her then-best friend Mandy Rose defeated her in a no disqualification ‘loser leaves WWE’ match. Last week, SmackDown commentator Corey Graves revealed she was back on the roster.

After the altercation with Reigns, Pearce would definitely need some reinforcements. This would be the first time we would see Sonya Deville as an official.

Although Sonya has hinted at the bad blood between her and Rose, we are not sure if she would actually face her and move over to Raw.
