Carmella Reveals Backstage Origins Of Her Partnership With R-Truth, Talks Royal Rumble Expectations


WWE Superstar Carmella spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News this week for an interview about her on-air partnership with R-Truth, whether or not she will be in the Women's Royal Rumble match this Sunday night and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the discussion.

On if she expects to compete in the Women's Royal Rumble match this Sunday night: "I wish I could make an announcement. I really don’t know. I hope I’m a part of it. I’ve been a part of the last two so I’m really hoping that I’m going to be a part of the match but I guess you’ll just have to tune in and find out."

On origins of her on-air partnership with R-Truth: "It was never supposed to be anything. It really wasn’t. He was just going around backstage saying he needed to pin me for a title opportunity as a joke because that’s what Charlotte did in order to get into the SummerSlam match in 2018. He was just joking about it and then it just kind of turned into a thing. Then we got paired together for Mixed Match Challenge and then we were the only team from Mixed Match Challenge that continued to be a team beyond that competition.

"What you saw on TV was so real and genuine. We have a true friendship and we just had so much fun. He would crack me up. I’d be cracking up live on TV from the things he was doing in front of me and I couldn’t help myself. I was laughing because he’s so ridiculous. He’s been around forever and he continues to find a way to stay relevant and my hat is off to him because he’s such an incredible entertainer."
