Carmella is waiting for her next big opportunity. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion certainly knows how to jump at a chance when it is provided for her. This is all well and good as long as someone didn’t already stake their claim first.
Yahoo recently spoke to Carmella about her character in WWE. She revealed that the original intention was for her to be from Boston. That couldn’t happen because Sasha Banks had already laid claim to that city. So, Mella went with the Princess Of Staten Island.
“When I was first coming up with this Carmella character, I wanted her to be from Boston. However, Sasha Banks was from Boston, so we had to come up with something else. So [the Princess of Staten Island] was what we came up with. From that point on I was religiously watching ‘Mob Wives’ and ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ Man, I just did so much character research — ‘The Sopranos,’ everything.”
Carmella probably wouldn’t have it any other way. Her persona as the Princess Of Staten Island saw her reach a lot of success in WWE. The Boss can have Boston because she was able to prove that Mella Is Money from Staten Island.
