Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose debuted together and despite spending a majority of their careers as partners, the pair split up earlier this year. Deville has now revealed why.

Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose came up from NXT together as part of Paige’s faction, ‘Absolution’. The two would eventually become tag team partners and rechristened themselves as ‘Fire and Desire’ before they parted ways on their road to Wrestlemania.

Deville and Rose were part of one of the most entertaining storylines heading into the showcase of the immortals this year. With Ziggler, Deville tried to sabotage Rose’s relationship with Otis. The pair have since broken up and have ventured into singles wrestling.

In an interview with Mario Menonous, Deville explained that there was no future in their pairing for a multitude of reasons. However, the most important thing for both of them is to continue to evoke feelings from the fans, whether love or hate is irrelevant.

“The only thing that’s been important to Mandy and Me throughout this entire thing is that we keep it authentic,” Deville said. “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. I think at the end of the day, that’s what most performers want.

“I’m saying my truth, Mandy’s saying her truth, and we’re both completely entitled to do so, and it’s up to you guys whose truth you side with! Love me or hate me, I think it’s one of the most genuine storylines WWE has done in a long time. It’s super rewarding.”
