Meet New Total Divas Star Sonya Deville
Get your game faces on! Sonya Deville‘s is here to stay.
The WWE superstar known fondly for wiping out the competition with some fancy wrestling moves and a self-assured scowl is due to make her Total Divas debut when the tough-as-nails reality series returns for season nine (she joins the cast this year alongside fellow pro wrestler Ronda Rousey). So, ahead of its upcoming Oct. 2 premiere, we thought it only fitting to get fans acquainted with the Divas‘ latest roundhouse-kicking addition.
Sonya’s upcoming inclusion in Total Divas‘ cast roster is exciting for a number of reasons, including but not limited to the fact that—as she says proudly in a recent promo video for the new season—she’s the “first-ever openly gay female in the WWE.”
Since her inauguration into the prestigious wrestling brand in 2015 (following an impressive stint on the WWE competition series Tough Enough earlier that year), the 25-year-old has made quite a splash in the ring and developed quite a following in the meanwhile.
