WWE star Carmella did an interview with KLFY News 10 in Lafayette, Louisiana to promote SmackDown Live. Check out some of the highlights here:
Being a former cheerleader in the NFL and NBA: “I was a dancer my whole life,” Carmella said. “I’ve been dancing since I was three years old. Then I was a cheerleader in the NFL and in the NBA with the Lakers.
“My dad was actually a wrestler back in the day in the early 90’s, he dabbled in it a little bit. So just kind of brought everything full circle with my dad’s background and my love of and passion for entertainment.”
What it’s like being a female wrestler in WWE today: “What a time to be a women in the WWE,” said Carmella. “We’re in the midst of this women’s evolution and we actually have our first ever all-women’s pay-per-view October 28th, which is huge! It’s called WWE Evolution. It’s going to be amazing.
“The first ever all-women’s pay-per-view. The women, we’re just taking over. [We’ve had] the first ever Hell in a Cell match. The first ever Money in the Bank ladder match, which I was the first ever Ms. Money in the Bank. So, it’s just really cool to see the women just taking over.”
