WWE held their 2019 Draft and in the process R-Truth and Carmella ended up on separate brands. This made some fans sad, but the company had their reasons for doing this.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained why WWE broke up R-Truth and Carmella during this year’s Draft.

“If you remember the WWE 24/7 Title, the original idea came from the USA Network. It was like their idea which is funny because the original idea was ‘what can we do for the third hour of Raw so they don’t tune out.’ Of course, within weeks the title had nothing to do with the third hour of Raw, but it is a USA Network idea.”

“R-Truth had to stay there [on Raw], but because Corey Graves got moved to SmackDown, Carmella had to go there, so if you’re wondering why they were broken up, that’s the reason.”

R-Truth and Carmella had a great time together on screen, but all good things must come to and end, even in WWE. It seems that the company’s attempt to keep couples together and appease the USA Network cause a split of Truth and Mella.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
