Possible Timeframe On Sonya Deville’s WWE Return

Sonya Deville

A new report has shed some light on how long Sonya Deville could be out of action.

TMZ first reported that Sonya Deville has suffered a torn ACL for which she will undergo surgery on Tuesday. Deville herself has now addressed the injury in a video released on social media where she stated:

What’s up guys. So obviously the Tag Team Titles are cursed. I’m just kidding, but not really. Anyway, as many of you already probably know and heard, thank you TMZ, I have torn my left ACL last week on SmackDown against Bianca and Charlotte. And obviously, I will be out for an extended period of time due to the fact that I have to get surgery tomorrow.

First and foremost I would like to say thank you to everyone who has sent their well wishes and, you know, has messaged me and everything, I really appreciate it, and it means a lot. Obviously, as you guys all know, I have been working the last 8 plus years in the WWE in my wrestling career to obtain a title of some sort. I finally got my hands on the Women’s Tag Titles with Chelsea, and we had been champs for 20 something days.

So obviously, it is super bitter to say that it has come to an end due to an injury, especially as it is my first injury in wrestling or in sports in general. I have been an athlete since I was 5 or 6 years old, so obviously it is super disappointing. It couldn’t have come at a worst time, but I don’t think any injury comes along at a great time, and that’s just kind of how the cookie crumbles.

But what I will say is that my life has been a journey of trials and tribulations, just how so many others have been, and we all go through our ups and downs. But something that has always kind of been a part of my character is that I love being tested. I love testing my willpower, my mental and physical strength and my durability.

So I feel like coming back from this injury, although it’s unfortunate, I feel like it is going to give me a bigger motivation and just passion for what I already love doing, and that’s being in the WWE. I love you guys, I wanted to thank you guys for all of your support, and tell you that I am going to be back sooner rather than later I’m going to be ready to put my hair up and square up.

How long will Sonya Deville be out of action?

Although it is still unknown how long Deville will be missing from the ring, Dave Meltzer gave a possible timeframe for her return on Wrestling Observer Radio based on other ACL injuries:

“A couple of weeks after winning it, her first championship in WWE, she blows out her knee. She has not had a serious injury in her entire time in WWE, and now the injury is going to put her out. Reconstructive surgery is Tuesday, that’s usually a 7 or 8-month process, 6 if you are lucky, but 7 or 8 months. They are going to have to change plans for that tag team title, come up with new plans, and the whole bit.”

As Meltzer noted, Sonya Deville is one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions which now means that the title is likely to be held up again just three months after they were vacated due to an injury suffered by Liv Morgan.
