Sonya Deville returned to WWE television back in January 2020 for a new non-wrestling role. She was a regular feature on RAW and Smackdown as a WWE official until she was “fired” from that role. Through it all, she was also an ambassador for the LGBTQ community. Deville says she never faced any homophobia in WWE during her time with Vince McMahon’s company.

Deville eventually started a program with Naomi in a longstanding feud that carried on for months on Friday Night Smackdown. It ended with Naomi winning the feud.

She is also a proud member of the LGBTQ community and has been together with her girlfriend for a long time and is quite open about that fact. While speaking on Busted Open, Sonya Deville claimed she has never faced any homophobia in WWE.

“I think I’m the first openly out female in the WWE. I know Darren Young was an out male before me and he certainly, you know, shared his story and laid some groundwork for me. I think the environment has changed a lot and I’ve never had any negative experiences backstage or within the company, I can honestly say.”

Deville has a lot of things going on in her life, and that’s what matters in the end. Sonya Deville also hinted at getting married in the future. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Deville.
