Report: WWE Star’s Return Wasn’t Expected By Many Backstage WWE

A WWE star’s recent return to TV was not expected by many individuals within the company according to a new report.

Last competing in July 2023, former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Sonya Deville made her long-awaited return to TV on last night’s WWE Raw from Greensboro, NC.

Deville dropped in to surprise Zoey Stark and Shayna Baszler during a backstage segment on Raw, and was seemingly eager to have a conversation with both stars, however, this was shut down by Baszler.

While it’s unclear what is in store for Deville from a creative standpoint, her sudden re-appearance was something that not only took many fans by surprise, but also those within the company according to Fightful Select.

As detailed in a new report, Fightful note that Deville was not purposely hidden away backstage at the Greensboro Coliseum, with several sources noting that it was a “pleasant surprise” seeing her make a return.

Despite recent reports suggesting that a return was imminent, according to Fightful, many didn’t expect Deville back until mid-Summer.

Following their encounter with Deville backstage, Stark and Baszler went on to win a number one contender’s four-way to become the next challengers to Jade Cargill and Bianca Belair’s WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
