While speaking to ESPN, Sonya Deville talked about her main roster call up and revealed that she found out about it just hours before RAW started.
“As the days unfolded, you hear rumors and you hear things flying around. You don’t wanna believe anything until it’s set in stone, because it’s the entertainment industry at the end of the day and things change,” she explained. “Come Monday, around 3:00, 3:30, I found out what I was doing. I think I’m still in disbelief. I don’t know if it’s really set in yet.”
Deville also talked about how the best parts of her entire journey is being able to share it with Mandy Rose, who started with her back in Tough Enough.
“I think one of the best parts about this entire journey is that me and Mandy got to share it together. We started together about two and a half years ago on Tough Enough, on the reality show where some odd thousand number of people tried out and me and Mandy were just two of those thousands applying for an opportunity to change our lives, never thinking it would come to this… We’ve tagged together in NXT, we fought each other in NXT — it’s just been this crazy rollercoaster ride that I’ve gotten to take with my best friend. It’s the best possible scenario I could ever ask for.”
