Carmella gets what she wants, when she wants it, and this Superstar has her sights set on making history in WWE. A former NFL and NBA dancer, the self-titled Princess of Staten Island has the athletic abilities to make her dreams a reality, and on SmackDown LIVE’s teeming Women’s division, she has the perfect stage on which to do so.
Considering the unusual road she took to get to the ring, it's not a bad situation to be in. Carmella was working as a hairdresser until an unfortunate incident involving her friends Enzo Amore & Big Cass, a bucket of hair-removal cream and a client's prized poodle culminated in the beauty being out of a job. Looking to take out her frustrations, the feisty Staten Islander approached “The Realest Guys in the Room” about becoming an NXT Superstar, and bada-boom, the rest is history.
Now, the brash beauty has become a staple of in-ring competition, having learned the ropes in NXT’s ultra-competitive Women’s division and built enough of a name for herself to be selected as the final, if F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S., overall pick in the 2016 WWE Brand Extension Draft. Now a staple of SmackDown LIVE, Carmella is looking to take another unlikely beginning and turn it into a rousing success.
Simply put, the princess has eyes on the throne.
