Sonya Deville Talks Ronda Rousey, Being 1st Openly Gay Woman In WWE

Published

WWE superstar Sonya Deville is making an impact as part of the ‘Absolution’ stable on the RAW brand and recently made an appearance on Lillian Garcia’s ‘Chasing Glory’ podcast.

Deville talked about a potential match with former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey who recently joined WWE on a full-time basis.

“I haven’t actually said anything publicly about it yet” Deville said.

“I feel like the story that me and Ronda can tell one day will be so awesome, and, I think we have something special here.

I think that it’s going to be an honor and a privilege to work in the ring with her.

That’s the biggest compliment, is that Ronda Rousey, she’s done a lot in her life, she’s accomplished a lot.

Besides MMA and the UFC, she was a Judo Olympian, she was a bronze medalist, and she went undefeated for so long, and she has a lot of accomplishments. So, for her to want to be here so bad, to go through contract negotiations for as long as they did with her, and to finally be here, that is such a compliment to our division and what we’re doing here.”

Deville also talked about being the first openly gay women in the WWE.

“I guess I put a big burden on myself because I want to send out the right message and I want to talk about it properly, and I do want to make sure that people hear my story because I think that it’s an interesting one that can help a lot of people.

I get tweets and stuff. I tear up now just thinking about it.

This little girl the other day was tweeting me, her name’s Courtney, and telling me that she came out to her family because she read my post and everything. I gave her the courage.

That’s the kind of influence I want to have. It’s not just being gay, it’s just being you.”

NXT’s Adam Cole Discusses Creative Freedom

Published

NXT Champion Adam Cole is at the height of his success with the promotion, recently defeating Johnny Gargano in another instant classic to capture his first NXT Championship, and he is talking about how things go down in NXT.

Unlike much of the main roster, where promos are often scripted and comedy-acts are more common, Cole says that superstars in NXT get a bit more creative freedom, as he had with Gargano for their match.

“One of the coolest things about NXT is we have a ton of creative liberties to come up with the story and the vision we have for the match” Cole said, during an interview with TalkSport. “Of course, there’s input and advice given and there’s suggestions or, you know ‘we need something this way’ (but) we do have a lot of freedom, which is great.”

Cole added that he and Gargano came up with the format for their two out of three falls classic at NXT Takeover: New York.

Andrade

WWE superstar Rey Mysterio believes that the company has a big star on their hands in Andrade .

“This kid is awesome” Mysterio said, during an appearance on the WINCLY podcast. “I mentioned it before, in previous interviews, but, every time I’m in the ring with him, there’s an affiliation to how I would move with Eddie [Guerrero],” Mysterio said.

“This is how good he is! He’s thinking a step ahead before you even move. He already knows the positioning, and knows exactly what to do and how to do it. My hat goes off to Andrade, as he’s definitely the future of WWE.”

Mysterio sees all the tools necessary to succeed in WWE.

“Just like anybody else, once you can dominate the mic skills and English, then he is bound to become a star,” Mysterio continued. “I’ve seen him work on his English, and it’s a slow process, but he’s moving forward. Once he dominates his English language, he’s on his way to stardom.”

Apollo Crews

WWE is starting to allow superstars on their main rosters to transition back to NXT, much like they did with Tyler Breeze, who recently returned to NXT, where he had his most success, following around 2 years of meandering on the main roster following his callup.

Fandango, Apollo Crews, and Killian Dain made their returns to NXT tv at Winter Park, FL at Full Sail University for Thursday’s NXT TV tapings.

Fandango, also making his return from injury, made the save for his Breezango partner, Tyler Breeze, who was on the receiving end of an attack at the hands of the Forgotten Sons. Crews made his return to take on Kushida in singles competition, and Dain made a brutal attack on Matt Riddle following Riddle’s win over Arture Rass.

Fandango had been out of action after suffering a shoulder injury back in July 2018.
