Sonya Deville is fully invested into her current storyline with Mandy Rose and believes it is one of the most genuine in a long time.
For months, both Deville and Rose have been at odds with one another on SmackDown after they split up and each woman has been featured more prominently on television. In an interview with Maria Menounos, Deville spoke about how Deville and Rose want to be able to keep the storyline authentic and as a result, it has become one of the most genuine WWE has crafted in years according to her.
“The only thing that’s been so important to Mandy and me throughout this entire thing is that we keep it authentic and that we keep it. We make it something that the fans, whether they love Mandy or hate Mandy, they love me or hate me, we don’t care. We just want them to feel something and I think at the end of the day, that’s what most performers want. I’m just saying my truth, Mandy’s saying her truth and we’re both completely entitled to do so, and then it’s up to you guys whose truth you side with. That’s completely fine with me. Like I said, love me or hate me, I think it’s one of the most genuine storylines that WWE has done in a long time and I think it’s super rewarding to be a part of it," Deville said.
Deville says the reason why the two of them have felt more confident on television lately is because of the validation they've gotten after working their way up to this match.
"We were both so passionate to get to this point. We didn't know how it was getting to this point or when it's going to happen, but us, like many in WWE, have been reaching for that brass ring as they say. We haven't been sitting back in catering as they say. We haven't been twiddling our thumbs. We have been working hard for every single opportunity that we've gotten. We're at a point where we really feel justified and validated. I think that's why you're seeing the confidence level rise between the two of us because we feel like we’re where we should be right now," Deville said.
