The seven second dance break could have very well been that and nothing more.
Carmella revealed in a new interview with CBS New York that her wildly popular short segment with R-Truth was only meant to happen once. Due to the immediate popularity, WWE opted to keep it going.
"That’s a great question. We did the very first episode of Truth TV, and it just took off. It was supposed to be a one-time thing and same thing with Truth and I. We were never supposed to be a thing, and then it just took off. And that’s why I just love the WWE, because you never know what’s going to happen. It’s so unpredictable, and you never know if things are going to catch on. And now dance break is a thing," Carmella said.
WWE didn't just keep it going, Carmella's profile stayed high as a result. After not having much to do on WWE TV after losing the Smackdown Women's Title, the dance break happened on the WrestleMania 35 stage, just hours after she won a battle royal on the same show.
"The world’s largest Seven-Second Dance Break! Although I think it was 37 seconds. It was really long. I was sitting out there like, “Oh my gosh. How long is this music going to keep playing? I can only dance for so long!” said the former Smackdown Women's Champion.
Carmella has had an accolade filled-two years in WWE, winning two Money in the Bank matches, a WrestleMania Battle Royal, the Mixed Match Challenge, and the Smackdown Women's Title.
