The world of professional wrestling has been rocked by the recent news of a significant injury to a reigning WWE champion.
Sonya Deville, one-half of the current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, has suffered a torn ACL, sidelining her for an indefinite period.
WWE: The Injury Details
Sonya Deville sustained the injury during a match on SmackDown, where she teamed up with Chelsea Green to face the formidable duo of Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair.
This unfortunate incident took place on July 28th. The severity of the injury means that Deville will require surgery, and as of now, there’s no specific timeline for her return to the ring.
A Rising Star’s Journey Halted
Sonya’s recent accomplishments in the WWE have been noteworthy. Alongside Chelsea Green, she captured the WWE Women’s Tag Team titles from Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez on July 17th.
This victory marked the first championship of Sonya’s WWE career, a testament to her rising star status within the company.
Company management had high hopes for the duo of Deville and Green, believing they could bring stability to the division, especially after a series of short title reigns.
The Impact on WWE’s Women’s Division
Sonya’s injury comes at a crucial time for the WWE Women’s Tag Team division. With her being out of action indefinitely, it raises questions about the future of the tag team titles and how the division will adjust in her absence.
The WWE will likely need to make some tough decisions regarding the championship’s fate, whether that means crowning new champions or waiting for Deville’s return.
Wishes Pour In
The wrestling community has rallied behind Sonya Deville, sending their best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Injuries are an unfortunate part of the sport, and every athlete knows the risks involved. However, the support from peers and fans alike can make the recovery journey a bit more bearable.
