When Carmella returned to WWE television just weeks ago, she did so with great fanfare following weeks of vignettes teasing a new “untouchable” character. She was given an updated look while leaning into her attitude, the brash bad guy eager to get to the top.
It was only natural, then, that her first opponent would be SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks.
That went down at TLC tonight (Sun., Dec. 20, 2020) at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, and Carmella is going to have to try again another time. She tapped to the Bank Statement.
During the match, Banks paid tribute to one of her heroes, Eddie Guerrero:
Reginald, Carmella’s assistant, proved to be a nuisance during the match but he wasn’t enough help to get the title off Banks. It’s a clean defeat for Carmella, so we’ll see what route they take with her from here.
