Many were surprised when Carmella was drafted to WWE's roster in 2016 and wasn't put with the duo she came into NXT with, Enzo and Cass. Today, she's made a name for herself solo, while her boyfriend Cass heals up an ACL injury.
“When I did find out he got injured, it was minutes before a match. We had a live event at the same time as Raw was going on. I’m a professional and at the end of the day you have to keep going. The show must go on. So, I’m going to put on my mean face and walk through that curtain and carry that briefcase. You have to make the most of it because the show must go on.”
The Ms. Money in the Bank also told TV Insider that she'd had words with popular Smackdown Superstar Lana during the filming of the "Total Divas" reality series.
"I said from Day One I wasn't one to get involved in drama. But one person who seems to bring it out of almost everyone from what I've seen is Lana. You'll be able to see a little bit of drama between myself and her on this show. I'm not going to say over what. I'll just say I had to put her in her place, which doesn't happen very often. But when something like that happens I have to stick up for myself. ... Overall, it's the women making history and showing week after week that we deliver in and out of the ring. It's going to be a great season."
