We’ve seen next to nothing of this new version of Carmella, who has officially revealed herself as the mystery SmackDown star in the vignettes, but that hasn’t stopped fans on social media from attacking her appearance. Twitter is an absolute cesspool that should be ignored but it’s part of her job so of course she’s going to see it.
Thankfully, she seems to understand and is responding in the best way she can:
Been off tv & out of the public eye for over five months. I come back for one night & the amount of negative comments I see just based on my looks alone is disgusting. I forgot what a toxic place social media can truly be. Thank god I know what a hot bitch I am. ♀️— Leah Van Dale (@CarmellaWWE) October 3, 2020
As for those wondering if this is just another version of the Emmalina character:
You have no idea what you’re in for.....haven’t even scratched the surface yet, babe. https://t.co/XWZNwqlCNe— Leah Van Dale (@CarmellaWWE) October 3, 2020
It’s fair to wonder what kind of depth WWE is going to give the character, considering the promotion’s track record with damn near every character on the roster, but none of that is on Carmella, who hasn’t even been given the chance to make it work yet.
Let’s just give her that chance, shall we?
After all, the women’s division could really use some fresh contenders at the top of the card on both Raw and SmackDown.
