Carmella as a witch

The Princess of Staten Island had one goal in mind on this particular Halloween night. The mission? Strike fear in all trick-or-treaters who dared to cross her path.

“I was 4 years old and wanted to be the scariest witch anyone had ever seen,” Carmella said. “My mom painted my face green, darkened my eyebrows and put a mole on my nose so I could fully look the part. You can totally tell I’m saying ‘Boo!’ when she snapped the photo. So scary.”

Carmella vs. Eva Marie

Graves says Eva Marie is getting better week by week and she’s beautiful. Carmella comes out with a mic and says she’s the princess of Staten Island. She does her usual shtick and the two get ready to fight. They lock up. Carmella locks Eva Marie’s arm, which Eva breaks away from by doing a somersault and a cartwheel. Carmella grabs her from behind, and the two jockey for position until Carmella trips Eva Marie and goes for a quick cover. It gets a 1 count. Carmella ducks Eva Marie’s punch and does the moonwalk.

Eva Marie charges her and finds herself in a headlock. She escapes and locks Carmella’s head under her arm. Eva runs off the ropes and knocks Carmella down, blowing her a kiss. Eva runs off the ropes again, jumping over Carmella, bounces off the opposite ropes and gets caught by Carmella with an atomic drop, then a dropkick. Carmella blows a kiss at a fallen Eva Marie. She grabs Eva from behind but is backed into a corner, elbowed in the head and then gets a running elbow and a running punch to the head. Eva then bounces off the ropes and hits a senton splash on Carmella.

As the two are on the mat, Eva holds Carmella’s right arm in submission behind her own head and this gives her a chance to jaw at the crowd who have been shouting “You can’t wrestle” and “We want Blue Pants”. Carmella finally gets up and flips Eva Marie over, beginning her own offensive. She climbs to the top rope as Eva Marie charges her, and lands a hurricanrana. She then lands two consecutive Lou Thesz presses as the audience cheers. Carmella spears Eva into the corner after the Staten Island shuffle, brings her boot up to meet Eva’s face and then slams her on to the mat for a 2 count. Eva Marie gets up, stuns Carmella with a chinbreaker and delivers “Sliced Red #2” aka Brian Kendrick’s finisher “Sliced Bread”. She goes for the pinfall and gets it.

Winner: Eva Marie
