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.”
Braun Strowman Talks Brock Lesnar Shooting On Him at Royal Rumble
WWE superstar Braun Strowman has had a number of memorable moments during his career at WWE, but none are quite like the 2018 Royal Rumble where Brock Lesnar got upset with Strowman for catching him with a knee.
Lesnar didn’t take to kindly and immediately hit Strowman with a flurry of legitimate punches, including a right hand to his jaw.
“Shit got real” Strowman said, during an interview with BT Sport.
“I mean, at the end of the day it’s two scary guys, two dominant males, not wanting to give an inch to either one, and we took it from each other. Things happen. We’re not playing, we’re not ballet, we’re not badminton. We’re physical. He’s [Lesnar] 300lbs, of just unadulterated animalistic beast and I’m a 385lbs monster. Things happen. At the end of the day, we made one hell of a segment, that’s what really happened.”
“I pat myself on the back. I think I’m the only person in history to take an overhand right from Brock Lesnar and not get knocked out. Anytime you get in the ring with “The Beast” and mix it up, the bigger the challenge the better. If you’re not wrestling the best, then who’d you beat?”
Ex-NJPW Star Karl Fredericks Signs with WWE
Former New Japan Pro Wrestling star Karl Fredericks has officially signed with WWE following the conclusion of his four-year tenure with NJPW. Fredericks announced on social media back in summer 2022 that he would not re-sign with NJPW.
Fredericks was initially linked to WWE last September, when he was reportedly spotted at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
According to PW Insider, Fredericks has officially signed with WWE and will be a part of the NXT brand initially.
Will Ospreay Has Been Contacted by WWE
New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar and current IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay has confirmed that he has been contacted by WWE and revealed that it is something that he is considering.
Ospreay also mentioned some of the WWE names he would be interested in facing if he were to find himself in WWE.
“I’ve been approached by them, so I have a lot to think about” he said, according to Tokyo Sports. “I’ve mentioned Seth Rollins‘ name many times… Also, considering my history, it would be a dream to fight Ricochet again. I think that because I think we have become completely different wrestlers than when we fought in the past.”
Ospreay has competed for AEW, Progress Wrestling, Rev Pro, and Ring of Honor throughout his career, among others.
