Deville has now confirmed the news on social media. Here she is providing her fans with an update on the situation:
Deville says she will have surgery on Tuesday and be out of action “for an extended period of time.” She expresses bitterness about the injury considering how hard she has worked to finally become a champion in WWE, and so the timing couldn’t be worse. She also jokes (but not really) about the WWE women’s tag team belts being cursed.
The rest of Sonya’s message offers an optimistic perspective about testing herself with this latest challenge, thanking her fans for their support, and vowing that she will be back “sooner rather than later.”
