Reason Why WWE Changed Sonya Deville vs Mandy Rose “Hair vs. Hair” Match to “Loser Leaves WWE”

Last night at SummerSlam, Sonya Deville suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Mandy Rose in the intense ‘Loser Leaves WWE’ match. As a result, Deville has to leave WWE for the foreseeable future.

What’s interesting is the fact that Deville vs. Rose was originally supposed to be a Hair vs. Hair match. However, owing to Deville’s upcoming court dates, WWE was forced to change the stipulation to Loser Leaves Town.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, Deville’s lawyer had informed her that getting her head shaved ahead of her court date wouldn’t be a wise idea.

“So the reason why they switched the stipulation from the Hair vs. Hair to the Loser Leaves Town was because her lawyer basically said that with this thing going on, it’s probably not a good idea to cut your hair and get your head shaved for court…so they did an impromptu Loser Leaves Town.”

“Maybe because of the case she’s gonna take some time off. I know there’s other projects she was looking at doing. Obviously she’s gonna be back at some point.”

It’s worth speculating what the stipulation and outcome would have been had Deville not had the scary situation with her stalker and the subsequent lawsuit.
