Cameron (Ariane Andrew) wants to return to WWE.
The world was first introduced to Ariane Andrew on the 2011 season of tough enough where she famously recounted that her favorite match ever was Melina vs. Alicia Fox. The WWE Universe would better get to know her as Cameron, one half of the Funkadactyls along with Naomi.
Andrew is one of only a handful of women in the last decade to have worked for WWE and never won a championship. Now, she is looking to change that as she stated in a new interview with WrestlingInc that she openly talked to Vince McMahon about returning and he seemed receptive to the idea.
“I am very torn if I want to say this, but I actually reached out recently and was like, ‘I would love to come back,’ and, will I be back? That’s to be determined, but I actually reached out to Vince [McMahon] himself and was like, you know what, I’m going to go to the person who’s at the top. I miss being in that world of wrestling. I saw Naomi three months ago, and I was like, you know what, if I have nothing, if I never got the championship, I feel like having the tag team titles would be awesome. I feel like I would feel fulfilled. I feel like I would get that feeling of feeling accomplishment because The Funkadactyls were awesome, but I still feel there’s this void that I’m missing, and I feel like if I was able to go back and, not only that, we’d be making history. We would be the first black women ever — I hate to throw that term around when it comes to race, but we’d be the first black women ever to have the belts.”
She continued, “He actually responded, which is crazy. I know he’s a busy person. He was like, ‘I’ll pass this along to John Laurinaitis,’ who’s head of talent relations.”
Perhaps she will be the ticket to getting Naomi a match on television as the current storyline says he's the former WWE Smackdown Women's Champion struggling to get onto any card.
Andrew was a part of AEW women's tag team tournament in the summer of 2020.
