Following in her father’s footsteps, Carmella made her mark in the wrestling world with her aggressive tactics and skills.

She began her wrestling career in 2013 and quickly rose to prominence. Before joining the wrestling world, she was a student at the University of Massachusetts and had a background in professional dancing and modelling.

Her time with NXT lasted until 2016, and she has since been a significant figure in WWE, showcasing her prowess and winning over fans worldwide.
