In a thrilling turn of events on the July 17th episode of Monday Night Raw, dynamic duo Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green clinched their inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship title. The pair outmaneuvered formidable opponents Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan, marking a watershed moment in their wrestling journey.
Yet, in the tumultuous world of WWE, triumph is often accompanied by setbacks. Merely eleven days post their grand victory, the July 28th SmackDown witnessed a distressing incident. While Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green squared off against the dynamic duo of Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair, Deville sustained a severe injury.
Later evaluations confirmed our worst fears: a torn left ACL. With the prognosis necessitating surgical intervention, Green's jubilation was abruptly replaced with concern, both for her partner and their shared title. As the wrestling community reeled from the news, a beacon of hope emerged.
Piper Niven made her decisive entrance as Chelsea Green's interim tag team partner on the August 14th episode of Raw, ensuring the championship spirit remains alive and burning.
Green's Emotional Reflection
Reflecting on the recent upheavals, Chelsea Green poured her heart out in an intimate conversation with Bleav in Pro Wrestling.
Reminiscing about their shared journey since ‘Tough Enough’, Green voiced her pain at witnessing Deville's misfortune, especially right after their monumental win. "It was like the universe asking, 'God, why?' just after our full-circle moment," Green expressed.
Yet, in her heartfelt dialogue, Green also embodied the spirit of resilience. "Everything happens for a reason," she commented, "Sonya's unparalleled strength, both inside and outside the wrestling ring, has never been in doubt.
While we've witnessed her surmount numerous challenges, her recovery from this injury will be a testament to her indomitable spirit." While Green’s camaraderie with Deville was evident, she light-heartedly alluded to her alliance with Piper Niven, remarking, "Piper and I like our shared understanding.
It's our little secret." As the wrestling world awaits Sonya Deville's triumphant return, one thing remains clear: the spirit of the championship, and the bond between these athletes, remains unbreakable.
