Speaking with With Spandex, Sonya Deville talked up what it’s like to continue working during the current global pandemic. She hasn’t been in an empty arena match herself yet, but she has taken in the mood backstage following those strange broadcasts.
I think it’s just really a testament to everyone’s talent and charisma, that they’re able to perform literally in front of nobody. And that’s what wrestling and WWE is based off of. It’s based off of fan and crowd interaction, we feel your guys’ energy every single weekend. That’s what drives us to do a lot of what we do. And so now it’s a completely different game. And just watching the superstars adjust and make that adjustment so smooth and still be entertaining is mind blowing to me. It’s awesome.
Sonya also talked about the rumored LGBT storyline between her and her longtime tag team partner Mandy Rose. The pair have worked on it extensively over the years, even having meetings with GLAAD, but nothing has come of it as of yet. She says she was “upset momentarily” when there was a teased angle between Liv Morgan and Lana, but also still thinks its a definite possibility.
What’s also a definite possibility is her own personal dream match against current RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.

So I cut that little promo after she said that I was a rising star on The Bump, and so I took it and ran with it and I didn’t expect it to go as viral as it did. And I was like, “Wow, okay. Maybe there’s something here. Maybe people want to see me versus Becky.” So maybe we’ll give people what they want one day.
