Wrestler: “The Undead Bribe” Sonia (Su Yung).

Background Information: Sonia is from Seattle, Washington. She got her start in wrestling after moving to Memphis, Tennessee in 2007 to become a professional wrestler.

She has worked for several promotions including Lady Sports, MLL, GCW, and Jerry Lawler’s Memphis Wrestling.

In February 2010, she made her debut for Main Event Championship Wreslting (MECW) as a villain under the name Su Yung and defeated Tracy Taylor.

In May 2010, she was signed to a developmental contract with WWE.

On September 18, 2010, she made her debut at FCW house show under the name Vannah, sharing ring announcing with Matt Martlaro. The next month her name was changed to Sonia.

She made her FCW in-ring debut as a heel on December 2, 2010, at a house show losing to AJ Lee. In mid-2011, Sonia teamed up with Audrey Marie in a losing effort against AJ and Aksana. On July 8, Sonia was defeated by Aksana in a triple-threat match for the FCW Divas Championship that also included Naomi.

On August 8, 2011, she was released from her developmental contract.

She debuted for SHIMMER Women Athletes on October 1, 2011, in a dark match at Volume 4; teaming with Kimberly Maddox and Veda Scott in a losing effort against Buggy Nova, Jessie Brooks, and She Nay Nay using the ring name Su Yung once again.

She debuted for Shine Wrestling as a babyface along with Tracy Taylor to form The West Coast Connection on July 20, 2012. On that evening, the duo lost to Made In Sin (Allysin Kay and Taylor Made) at SHINE 1.

A month later at SHINE 2, she picked up her first Shine victory by defeating Kimberly and she and Tracy defeated Gabby Gilbert and Luscious Latasha at SHINE 3. Her winning streak continued with victories over Rhia O’Reilly and Josie, but it came to an end at SHINE 6 in January 11, 2013, when she was defeated by Ivelisse.

Ever since being released, she has improved a lot since then and has become a better well-rounded performer. It’s only a matter of time when she gets a second chance.

My Thoughts: Sonia is a very talented woman that has gotten better over the years. She has a great look, she has a presence about her in and outside of the ring, she has a good character, solid charisma, and she is a good in-ring wrestler. Hehehehehe…

Video: This video contains a match between Sonia and Naomi on July 31, 2011.

My Thoughts: This was a good women’s match that showcased character from Sonia here as well as her in-ring skills.

I like how she was working as a heel in this match to get people from the crowd to get behind Naomi. Her slaps to Naomi looked painful and her surfboard on Naomi looked painful as well. Even she lost this match, I thought she had a pretty good match with Naomi here so Sonia did well here.

Good women’s match that showcased Sonia’s skills in the ring and her character.

It’s a shame that Sonia didn’t have much success in FCW/WWE because she had a lot of potential back then. After getting released from the WWE, she went back to the independent circuit and became a better overall performer.

She has improved tremendously since her release and I think it’s only a matter of time when she’s in a major wrestling company again. Whether it’s NXT, TNA, ROH, or Lucha Underground, I would love to see her being given another chance to showcase herself because she deserves another chance as I think she would do better this time around than last time. It’s only a matter of time when that happens and until then, she will kill it in the independent circuit. Hehehehehe…


After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler herself. Thank you.
