Backstage News On Sonya Deville's WWE Return

More on Sonya Deville’s recent WWE return

After nine months out with injury, Sonya Deville made her surprise return to WWE on the May 20 edition of Raw.

Deville appeared in a backstage segment with Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark, ambiguously teasing either a partnership or rivalry between the two sides. A report from Fightful Select suggests that Deville’s return was a pleasant surprise to some within WWE, with the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion not expected back until mid-Summer.

During the day of Raw, Deville was backstage throughout the day and was not hidden. Raw marked Deville’s first televised appearance since the July 28, 2023 edition of SmackDown, with Deville suffering an ACL tear mid-match in tag action with Chelsea Green against Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair. Injuries never come at a good time, but for Deville it came just 11 days after she and Green lifted the Women’s Tag Team Championships, further adding to the supposed ‘cursed’ nature of the belts.

Deville has been part of WWE since 2015, with the then Daria Berenato making her TV debut on the July 13, 2016 edition of WWE NXT. There's no word yet as to when Deville could make her in-ring return.
