Carmella made history last year when she won the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank match and went on to cash in her contract this year against Charlotte Flair where she became SmackDown Women’s Champion for the first time.

Recently, Carmella’s character has seemingly gone through a number of changes since she’s now seen as a face alongside R-Truth and recently spoke to Sam Roberts to discuss who was the brains behind her Carmella persona.

“Everyone here. Of course, Sara Amato has been- was the best coach,” she said via Ringsidenews. “She really helped me so much and allowed me to have my personality. I think she knew I used that to the best of my ability. She would be like ‘insert this here, do this here’ because you can go out there and do all the moves you want, but if you don’t have a connection with the audience and you don’t have that personality where people are like ‘argh, I hate her’ or ‘ohhh she’s cool’ then you’re not gonna get the reactions you want.”

“Obviously, Dream was such an influence with our promos and for me, characters- most of Carmella. So that helped a lot. I always credit Byron Saxton. He helped me- as much as he hates me now on TV, he helped me so much in coming up with the Carmella character-the little mannerisms, and it brought it to life.”

The Princess of Staten Island went on to further explain how much the SmackDown commentator helped her throughout the creative process.

“I always credit him, because he helped me so much. I came to him and I was like- ‘I have this idea for Carmella, she’s like this mafia, mob-wife princess’ and he was like- and we were talking and just going over our promo for promo class and we were sitting in his office and he’s like ‘Carmella?’ and I was like ‘yeah?’ and he’s like ‘maybe you should do a promo on Paige’ ’cause she was the NXT Women’s Champion at the time.”

“I was like ‘that’s a great idea’ and he’s like ‘Paige, what is that? Like a book or something? Paige?’ and I was like ‘Woah! This is Carmella!’ It just snowballed from there; he’s amazing!”

Carmella is currently out of the SmackDown Women’s Championship picture, but she has entered a storyline alongside R-Truth against The Miz.
