During the latest episode of Talking Smack that dropped on the WWE Network yesterday, Sonya Deville revealed that she never actually thought she’d return to the company after her hiatus last year.
“It’s never felt better. It felt like it was never going to happen. A long 4 months off, but you know what, 2021 is going to be the year of Sonya Deville, but also the year of SmackDown. I’m excited about so many things to come for the show and I’m excited to show you guys.
I think anyone that knows me knows that that’s just a natural fit for my personality and I think it’s just a great kind of duo with Pearce right now. I want to make SmackDown a good place to work, and I want the women to get opportunities. I have a lot of things in store, and I think it’s all going to be positive, moving in the upward direction, and that’s all I’m going to tell you.”
Sonya Deville returned to SmackDown on the New Year’s Day episode last week after losing a “Loser Leaves WWE” match at SummerSlam to her former best friend and tag team partner Mandy Rose.
On this week’s show, it seemed as if Sonya Deville started a partnership with WWE Official Adam Pearce. While it wasn’t 100% clear, it seems as if Deville is going to be an authority figure on the blue brand moving forwards.
