WWE star Sonya Deville may eventually have a star following in her footsteps, with one of her stepchildren now wanting to become a wrestler.
Earlier this year in February, Deville and model and fitness enthusiast Toni Cassano announced that they were engaged to be married.
Speaking with Maria Menounos, Toni stated that her daughters didn’t know anything about WWE until she started dating Sonya Deville.
Noting that one of her 12 year old daughter aspires to become a wrestler, Toni said:
“No (her daughters weren’t wrestling fans before she met Sonya Deville).
“So they only warched for the very first time after we were already together, probably a month.
“I was like ‘Girls I actually have this friend on this show, do you guys want to watch it?’ and they watched it.
“I was like ‘that’s her’, this was before they met her.
“They never knew what WWE was, no idea, and now my older one wants to be a wrestler.”

After appearing on the 2015 season of Tough Enough, Deville signed with WWE that October.
She made her in-ring debut that December, before making her NXT TV debut in August 2016.
While Deville has since moved to the main roster and been part of some notable storylines, she has yet to win a WWE title.
Deville recently opened up about this, noting that she takes pride in staying relevant without WWE gold around her waist.
