Carmella is full of attitude and sex appeal. She’s the trash-talkin’, moon-walkin’, Princess of Staten Island. She can be seen every Tuesday night on WWE SmackDown Live, alongside “the chinless wonder” James Ellsworth.
Her real name is Leah Van Dale. Before she became a wrestler, she was a cheerleader for the New England Patriots for three seasons. She then went on to become a member of the Los Angeles Lakers dance team from 2010 to 2011.
In June 2013, Ms. Dale was picked up by the WWE. She was assigned to their NXT developmental brand, where she played Carmella, a street-talking former hairdresser from Staten Island. She managed the ultra-popular tag team of Enzo and Cass. Every night, Enzo would introduce this blonde starlet to the NXT audience during his entrance promos. “This right here is Carmella and she’s hot as hell,” says Enzo. “And you can’t teach that!”
In July 2016, Carmella was moved up to the main roster. She was drafted over to SmackDown, where she feuded with Nikki Bella and many others.
For some reason, she’s taken a liking to the odd ball James Ellsworth. She probably just wants the attention.
Where can I find Carmella?
You can watch her on tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live. Last week, she joined a pact with Tamina Snuka, Natalya, and James Ellsworth to take out Charlotte Flair. During the main event for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship, the envious squad interfered and attacked Charlotte. Victory was at the fingertips of “The Queen,” only for it to be snatched away by the Princess of Staten Island and her goons.
What’s next for Carmella? I’m sure Charlotte will be looking for revenge. It’ll all happen tonight live from Fresno, California.
