Sonya Deville issues public statement regarding report that she suffered a torn ACL injury

As previously noted, WWE women’s tag team champion Sonya Deville reportedly suffered a torn ACL injury and is out of action indefinitely.

“What’s up, guys? So obviously the tag team titles are cursed. I’m just kidding. But like, not really. Anyway, as all of you probably already know and heard, thank you, TMZ.

I have torn my left ACL last week on SmackDown in my match against Bianca and Charlote, 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 want to say thank you to everyone who has sent their well wishes and messaged, me and everything. I really appreciate it and it means a lot. Obviously, you guys all know that I’ve been working the last eight plus years in the WWE and in my wrestling career to obtain a title of some sort, and I finally gotten my hands on the women’s tag team titles with Chelsea and I think we’ve been champs for 20 something days. So obviously it’s super bitter to say that it’s come to an end due to an injury, especially being that it’s my first injury in wrestling or really in sports in general.

And I’ve been a lifelong athlete since I was five, six years old, so obviously it’s super disappointing and it couldn’t have come at a worse time, but I don’t really think any injury comes at a great time and that’s kind of just how the cookie crumbles. But what I will say is that my life has kind of been a journey of trials and tribulations just how so many others have been. And we all go through ups and downs, but something that has kind of always been part of my character and who I am is I love being tested and I love testing my willpower and my strength and my mental and physical durability. So I feel like coming back from this injury, although it’s unfortunate, I feel like it’s going to give me a bigger motivation and just passion for what I already love doing and that’s being in the WWE. So I love you guys.

I wanted to thank you guys for all your support and tell you that I’m going to be back sooner rather than later and I’m going to be ready to put my hair up and square up.”
