Carmella On Owning 'Diva' Moniker, Women's Revolution In WWE, More
November 23, 2020
Ahead of this Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam 2018 pay-per-view, Carmella spoke with the European Market for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On being a Diva in today’s WWE climate: “That’s not what I’m saying at all when I say I’m proud to be a diva. It’s more that these women paved the way for us. If it wasn’t for the Divas, we wouldn’t be where we’re at right now. You know, Charlotte said that I’m a Divas living in a Women’s era, but she was a Divas Champion, so she comes from it as well. There’s nothing wrong with being a Divas. If it’s because I take care of myself and look good then I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I think you can look good and still be a champion and still fight and still be the best at what I do.”
On why she doesn’t mind owning the Diva moniker: “There are obviously a lot of negative connotations that go along with being a Diva, but to me, being a Diva is someone who takes care of herself, that looks fabulous, is always on point with her fashion, and doesn’t care what anybody thinks.”
On how the WWE Women’s Revolution is still in high-gear heading into the WWE Evolution PPV on 10/28: “I don’t think it’s moving slow at all, I think it’s moving fast. We’re having the first Hell In A Cell match, Royal Rumble, I was Miss Money In The Bank and we had a second one this year. I don’t think it’s moving slow, I think it’s moving fast.
“I think the sky is the limit for the women and I think Tag Team Titles are for sure in the picture in, when? I have no idea. But you know, I don’t think it’s moving slow.”
