Welcome back to wrestling world!
For todays wrestling news, well be taking a look at whats going on with the Mysterio
family, Sonya Devilles shocking WWE return and much more
So lets start things off with the mysterio family news
Now much has changed since we last covered the mysterio family
Aalyah Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, Rey Mysterio, and Murphy are still all missing in action
with no explanation given to us by WWE
The Mysterio familys last WWE appearance was way back on the December 4th edition of
On that episode of WWE Smackdown, King Corbin vs Murphy took place with the Mysterio Family
This was also the debut for the Knights of The Lone Wolf, they attacked Rey and
Dominik and assisted King Corbin in pinning Murphy
It didnt appear like it was anything too dramatic or meant to write anyone off of television,
but we havent seen the Mysterio family or Murphy ever since that match
Initially it looked like King Corbin was going to be their next rival.
Maybe even get some 6 man tag action with Dominik, Rey, and Murphy vs King Corbin and
the knights of the lone wolf
Thats where it appeared to be heading to, but weirdly enough, that storyline hasnt
been touched on at all in 5 weeks now
Its safe to assume that maybe its over?
You can never tell with WWE, so its hard to say
But it appears that King Corbin has moved on, hes still on Smackdown every week and
theres not even a single mention of the Mysterio family
It is a bit weird.
The last report that ever came out about the mysterio family claimed that WWE didnt
forget about them, theyre just not needed at the moment
So what does that exactly mean?
Well it seems that theyre trying to say that WWE hasnt fully forgotten about them
or theyre done for good
It just seems like theyre saying that WWE fully intends to feature them heavily again,
but not right now
So that makes more sense.
The Mysterio family isnt gone for good, theyre just on this mysterious hiatus it
I have no issue with WWE taking a break from featuring the Mysterio Family, but what tends
to bother me is the lack of explanation for their absence
Theyre werent properly written off with an entire explanation, they just magically
vanished for over 5 weeks now, so thats the part that bothers me a bit
If you know youre going to remove someone from television for a long time, at least
give us some explanation or injury reason for their absence
Even though it is partially a joke among the community, some fans are starting to speculate
if The Mysterio familys return could be getting saved for Seth Rollins return as well
It seems like WWE has no idea what to do with the Mysterio Family without Seth Rollins being
It also seems like theyre unsure about Seth Rollins direction as well because
they did cancel his return on the January 1st edition of Smackdown
So maybe the mysterio family and Seth Rollins really do need each other, well have to
see whats next for the both of them
The Mysterio Family does seem to be doing well outside of the ring though
Video started to surface of Rey Mysterio, Aalyah, and the whole family celebrating on
New Years Eve, so thankfully they seem perfectly fine
So the issue there doesnt seem to be injury or health related at all, strictly seems like
a creative writing block for the mysterio family right now
Well see what WWE comes up with to get the Mysterio Family back on Smackdown somehow
in the near future
We didnt get Seth Rollins return on Smackdown this week, but we did get another
unexpected WWE return and that was Sonya Deville
Sonya Deville had a lot going for her this past summer
The plan was for Sonya Deville to lose the hair vs hair match at Summerslam against Mandy
Sonya would then go bald and start a run as this scary heel in the Smackdown womens
All that went off the rails after Sonyas horrific incident outside of the ring
It was reported that it was Sonyas lawyers that requested for the hair vs hair match
to be changed because they didnt want Sonya showing up in the middle of this case with
a shaved head
So the match was changed to loser leaves WWE.
Sonya Deville lost match and was fired from WWE
Of course she obviously wasnt fired, she was just given some personal time for herself
and to deal with the outside of the ring situation
5 months later, we finally see Sonya Deville returning to Smackdown
It was a brief moment, Sonya Deville was shown walking backstage, everyone is in disbelief,
and the commentators noted that she has been reinstated
So glad to have Sonya Deville back, she was quickly becoming a breakout star after the
split with Mandy Rose, but one thing that has me worried about the return is the story
I hope theres a story behind why she was reinstated by WWE.
I hope this isnt some lazy writing and lazy explanation of yeah, shes just
reinstated and thats it
No, we need more than that.
Sonya Deville lost a loser leaves WWE match and shes back in 5 months like nothing?
There has to be a story and huge reason there
You can even tell in Sonyas face when shes walking backstage, it looks like shes confident
and it looks like she did something to be reinstated
So what could that thing be?
Well lets run through some basic ideas of what WWE can use
A loophole in her contract.
Maybe Sonya Deville and her legal team went through her WWE contract and came across some
loophole that gives her the right to be reinstated by WWE
Backstage connections or blackmailing WWE.
Maybe Sonya Deville has some serious dirt on WWE and in order to keep everything under
control, they reinstated her
Literally anything will be fine.
I think the explanation of how she got reinstated would be a great small return story for Sonya
So I hope WWE doesnt waste this opportunity, theres a lot of story and direction you
can go in with this whole idea of Sonya Deville being reinstated by WWE
Reports also claim that similar to Roman Reigns return, Sonya Devilles return was kept
well under wraps
Thats why dirt-sheets and everyone else didnt have a single clue this was happening
Which is something that I love, its unfortunate when things leak out early and it ruins the
Thats what made Sonya Devilles return even more shocking, no one saw it coming and
no one reported on it
Sonya Deville also strengthens an already strong Smackdown womens division
Sasha Banks has a whole list of great talent to feud with from Carmella, Bianca Belair,
to now Sonya Deville being added to that list
While Raw on the other hand is still in shambles with their womens division.
The raw womens titles still remains non-existent and who know when was the last time Aus-ka
actually defended the womens title
I guess the 30 day title defense rule is definitely no longer in existence
But at least the Smackdown womens division is on fire right now and has so much depth
It appears that Sonya Deville will be remaining solo, so shell be a contender for the Smackdown
womens title in no time
Like we discussed a few weeks ago, Mandy Rose, the winner of that loser leaves WWE
match went absolutely no where with all that momentum
Mandy was expecting for that win to help launch her singles career on Smackdown, but WWE traded
her to raw, had no clue what to do with her, and then placed her in a random tag team
Which Mandy has stated, didnt sit well with her, she thought she was being punished
for something she did wrong
So all that momentum coming out of the feud was thrown away and wasted for Mandy Rose
Lets hope they dont do that same thing with Sonya Deville
He return has a lot of buzz and possible story around it, so hopefully she doesnt get
thrown into some random tag team with Natalya or something
Sonya Deville needs to make some noise in the singles division, so lets hope they
end up doing that with her
