Sonya Deville WWE

Sonya Deville has confirmed that she has torn her ACL and will require surgery.

The news of the injury broke on Monday, August 7th by TMZ, only hours before Raw was due to go on the air, with the future of the Women’s Tag Team Championships also being unknown.

Taking to social media, Deville joked that the titles are cursed and that she is booked in for surgery on August 8th. The Tag Team Champion also thanked everyone for their well wishes, and admitted that her first injury in WWE couldn’t have come at a worse time:

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.
