NXT star, Sonya Deville recently talked with Smackdown Live commentator, Byron Saxton in a interview for WWE. During their talk, Deville went over her specialties, why fans should keep an eye on her and the differences between the old & new Sonya Deville.
Here are the highlights:
What Should The NXT Universe Understand About Her:
“I live for the pressure, I live for the moments when I’m deep in the match, out of breath, hurt and feel like throwing up. It’s in those moments that I push through, I keep punching, I keep going forward, because no matter what, I will never stop. That challenge, that uncomfortable feeling is what fuels me and honestly, it’s what I live for. I’m not here for the games, I didn’t come here to be anybody’s little sidekick. I came here to fight and to take over. I’m changing the game. I don’t expect anyone to know that yet, but you will.”
“The path that has been paved before me is impressive. I look up to and have learned a lot from the women before me. With that said, there has never been a woman in this ring with the experience that I have in fighting. Take my skill set, my strikes, my submissions. You can call WWE whatever you want, but at the end of the day, it’s a fight and fighting is my specialty.”
Differences Between The Old & New Sonya Deville:
“My first time being inside the Performance Center was for the WWE Tough Enough tryouts and although I knew hardly anything about sports-entertainment, I knew I wanted to be a part of this place. All I knew was that I loved to fight, I loved to perform and I loved being inside the WWE Performance Center. Here we are; almost two years later and my mindset is the same as day one: I love being here and I love fighting and with NXT, I get to do that almost every single day of the week. My life is amazing, I get paid to hurt people.”
