Sonya Deville Gives Her Mount Rushmore Of Women's Wrestling

Stephanie McMahon is often credit for the invention of women's wrestling as she ushered in the women's evolution when introducing Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks on the July 13, 2015 episode of WWE Raw.

Before Stephanie ushered in a new era of women's wrestling, women like Alundra Blayze, Bull Nakano, Lita, Trish Stratus, and The Bellas carried the division through tougher times.

There are plenty of candidates to be carved into the women's Mount Rushmore, and speaking to The Sun, Sonya Deville gave her top choices.

"Yeah, I think (Charlotte would) be on there for sure. I think she's incredible. I think Asuka’s incredible. Bayley and Sasha, are incredible. Becky, for sure.There's a lot of women that have paved the way before me, everyone has added something different to women's wrestling. The Bellas I think are incredibly smart, business savvy women that knew how to build a brand and are incredible in the ring too. I think we've all contributed to the success of women's wrestling and we're just going to keep going up from here because the talents never been more competitive," she said.

Not quite a top four, but every Mount Rushmore differs.

Sonya Deville is currently part of the SmackDown brand and locked in a feud with Mandy Rose.
