Sonya Deville on how WWE can be useful during the Coronavirus pandemic

On 28 October 2015 Sonya Deville signed with WWE, being sent to the development area of NXT. Her debut took place on December 3rd in a live event, where she fought with her real name, being defeated by Nia Jax. Deville rose to prominence as a contestant in the 2015 season of WWE Tough Enough, where she finished in eleventh place.

Following her elimination, she signed a contract with WWE and was sent to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. She has since performed in WWE's developmental territory NXT and its main roster as a solo competitor and in a tag team alongside Mandy Rose dubbed Fire and Desire.

In mixed martial arts, she has competed in three matches, holding a record of 2–1. Shortly after Fastlane, the dissolution angle between Deville and Rose was once again portrayed as both accidentally cost each other matches against SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka.

Both Deville and Rose competed in the second WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal during the WrestleMania 35 pre–show, however, they were one of the last competitors eliminated from the match. During a recent interview with AM New York, she spoke about how WWE can be useful during the Coronavirus pandemic: “We’re taking all the necessary steps to make sure everyone is safe and healthy.

I believe that professional wrestling can provide some comedic relief for those in quarantine – it allows people to get a little relief from the stress of what’s going on. Wrestlemania is still a thing, but this year we’ll make history with something unique, just like we always do”.
