Carmella won a #1 contender’s match on Friday Night SmackDown this week. That secured her a shot at Bayley’s SmackDown Women’s Title. Mella did not get to celebrate because Bayley jumped her immediately afterward.
Bayley and Carmella used to be close. Now Mella is forced to fight her former friend after she turned to the dark side. The Princess Of Staten Island sent out an Instagram post with several pictures of herself and Bayley. She also included a caption that wasn’t quite poetry, but she never claimed to be a poet.
It’s crazy what this business does to friendships. It breaks my heart. I can’t believe you let all of this get to your head. BayMella is truly dead. 💔 (I’m also a poet.) @itsmebayley
This SmackDown Women’s Title match very well could be taking place in Saudi Arabia. Promotional material mentioned that they would be squaring off at the Super ShowDown on February 27th. Its unclear exactly why WWE didn’t include that information on SmackDown this week.
