Sonya Deville has become one of the main cast members on Total Divas throughout their ninth season, where she revealed publicly that WWE canceled a storyline that centered around Deville and the LGBTQ community heading into WrestleMania back in April.
Deville has found it hard to be noticed on WWE TV throughout her run on SmackDown, and soon to be two-time WWE Hall of Famer Sean “X-Pac” Waltman recently implied that WWE’s first-ever openly gay female wrestler was frustrated with her position in the company on the latest episode of Afterbuzz TV podcast.
“She’s good, there are a lot of great things going on in her life. Total Divas, that’s an awesome gig. She may or may not be creatively frustrated like other people in WWE, I’m not sure. If they [creative] aren’t doing something with you currently like you have to do something to maintain a positive attitude. Otherwise, you end up like one of those poisonous people. It’s really difficult to maintain a positive attitude. I can’t say that I was like that myself, not everyone was politically plugged in like I was. They [creative] put up with way more sh*t with me than they would the average person,” he said via SEScoops.
Sonya Deville hasn’t been used on WWE TV since SmackDown’s live show on November 29th. In recent weeks, she has been part of the feud between Mandy Rose, Alexa Bliss, and Nikki Cross. Deville has come up short throughout the feud as the company continues to push the former Tag Team Champion.
There was a segment a few months ago where it seemed as though WWE were about to pull the trigger on a lesbian storyline between Rose and Deville, but there was no followup, so it’s understandable that Deville is frustrated with her current position in the company.
