For the past couple of weeks on SmackDown Live!, WWE has teased a romantic pairing between on and offscreen best friends, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. Deville, who is openly gay in real life, has spoken out about the honor she has taken on representing the LGBT community on WWE television.
"It feels super special because I look back four years ago when I came out on 'Tough Enough' and I think back before that, not even being able to verbalize that I'm gay," she said.
"And so (it's special) to be here now with WWE by my side not only supporting and loving and accepting who I am but hopefully passing that message on to others that are in the position that I was once in."
Is that message about to cut through like never before?
Evan has been a wrestling fan since the age of seven, a time when children should not have been watching wrestling. That's right...the attitude era!! He loves talking about wrestling, writing about wrestling, and fantasizing about working for a wrestling company one day. Aside from that, he loves all things pop culture: movies, music, and TV. He also loves to read, travel (even though he doesn't do much of it), and explore new things about this crazy ass world.
