Sonya Deville Reveals In-Ring Return At WWE Royal Rumble 2021 Was Discussed

Deville has teased an in-ring return

Sonya Deville last wrestled a competitive match for WWE in August 2020, and since then has morphed into one of the most despised authority figures of recent times.

Sonya has recently feuded with Naomi on SmackDown, and despite stepping into the ring with Shayna Baszler in handicap action against Naomi, fans are still waiting for a full-on in-ring return, and as revealed to TalkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy, a return at WWE Royal Rumble 2021 could have happened:

“Yeah [the Royal Rumble was discussed]. There was a lot of different ideas when I first came back but ultimately, it came down to a decision that was made that I had something to do with. I was basically in Vince’s [McMahon] office and we were kind of just throwing ideas out and I had mentioned I had a three-piece suit that I wanted to wear on TV. I kind of wanted to start incorporating this boss suit look into my character, whatever they may mean. He kind of just started thinking. He was looking and I could tell his wheels were spinning and he said ‘Do you have the suit on you?’ I said ‘No, it’s at my hotel.’ He said ‘Alright, well get someone to go get it.’ And that’s when I wore the suit and walked down the hallway [for my return]. He’s just so genius and so creative. He just saw something that day when we had that small conversation that’s just unravelled this potential story and character and that’s where we’ve gone with it.”
