Sonya Deville loves to put her hair up and square up, but you can call her Daddy.

The New York Post recently spoke to Sonya Deville where she revealed where this “Daddy Deville” persona came from. It originated on The Bump as she joked about becoming “Daddy Deville” to counteract Becky Lynch’s The Man moniker.

“It came from a year ago when I was responding to a compliment that Becky Lynch gave me on ‘The Bump.’ She said I was the next rising star. I felt like she was calling herself The Man, but I felt like I could be superior to her in a type of way. And what’s bigger than The Man is being The Man’s Daddy. I was just trying to level up at that time and it kind of just transpired into having a life of its own.”

“Daddy Deville” could soon find its way to the WWE Universe sooner or later. She certainly seems passionate about taking gender roles out of the equation.


“I think in the day and age of the women’s evolution (in WWE) and redefining what being a female in sports entertainment means, I think it’s kind of cool to take gender roles out of it, showing people that Daddy can mean anything. It’s not attached to a certain gender, but it obviously comes with a dominant title because when we think of dad we think of this dominant, large-and-in-charge person in our lives, and I kind of feel like I’m that dominant large-and-in-charge person in the division now.”

Sonya Deville was also pretty confident that WWE fans will see lesbian storyline sooner than later. Perhaps Daddy Deville will come out as part of that future angle.

WWE has a lot of options and one of them is to turn Sonya Deville into “Daddy Deville.” What do you think about WWE possibly going this direction? Sound off in the comments below!
