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

Enzo comes out and does his usual shtick, and everyone in the building talks along with him. Carmella actually gets a lot of heat. Big Cass cuts a promo about the Arnold Classic and pumping iron, then tells Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy to pump the breaks, and makes fun of “the Australian one”. The crowd eats it up.

Wesley Blake vs. Big Cass

Cass is super over. Everyone is chanting “how you doin?” He uses his size to bully the champ around the ring for several minutes. Blake responds correctly, going full heel mode by stomping a mudhole in the corner. He locks on a rest hold, but Cassidy powers out with a backbreaker. He fires off with a few shoulder tackles and connects with a big corner splash, followed by the Black Hole Slam. Cass does the SAWFT fist-pumps. He kicks Murphy off the apron but gets distracted by Carmella being taken out, and Blake rolls him up for the 1-2-3.

Winner: Wesley Blake

Carmella hits the ramp with a mic and introduces herself. She’s taking on Alexa Bliss.

Alexa Bliss vs. Carmella

Carmella teases Alex a little before the fur starts a-flyin’. Bliss kicks out of a head scissors and both ladies return to a vertical base. Bliss gets Carmella down and cranks in an arm bar before turning it into a cover for a near fall.

After some back and forth, Carmella chokes Bliss on the ropes and goes for a pinfall but Alexa kicks out. Carmella keeps the heat on but can’t seal the deal. She follows Bliss around delivering kick after kick until Alexa fights back and finally puts Carmella away with her “Sparkle Splash.”

Result: Alexa Bliss

Enzo and Big Cass kick off the show. Enzo works the mic and the crowd goes along with it. They bring out Carmella to something of a mild reaction. She tells the crowd that Blue Pants “went back to the clearance rack.” Out comes Emma for a match. The crowd is all for her.

Emma vs. Carmella

Emma gets in a few shots off the bell but Carmella powers up and takes control. Emma comes back with a big clothesline and works Carmella into a submission move. Emma smacks Carmella in the head but Carmella comes back with a drop toe hold and gets Emma into a submission hold, prompting Emma to tap out.

Winner: Carmella

Did you know that NXT Diva Carmella loves Broadway musicals? Better yet, could there be hope for a budding romance between her and NXT Superstar Enzo Amore? And why does a matchup with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus draw such strong interest? Your questions have been submitted and Carmella pulls no punches with her honest answers. NXT 10-Count starts now!

WWE UNIVERSE: How good are Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady at teaching you how to wrestle?

CARMELLA: They’ve actually helped me so much in my training. Cass has a ton of experience and offers me a lot of great advice. As for Enzo, he actually helped me transfer my scrappiness into the ring.

WWE UNIVERSE: Would you ever consider dating Enzo?

CARMELLA: I will admit that while he comes off as an obstinate, boneheaded, chauvinist pig, there is actually a sweet and sensitive guy in there, somewhere. He thinks we are still in middle school where it’s OK to pick on the girl you like, and that nonsense is not going to fly with me. He has a lot of growing up to do, and he has to learn how to treat me like the princess I am, but crazier things have happened, so who knows!

WWE UNIVERSE: Which Diva are you looking forward to facing the most this year?

CARMELLA: NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte. Charlotte is one of the fiercest Divas to ever step foot into the ring. She always says, “In order to be the best, you have to beat the best,” and that’s a challenge I’m looking forward to taking on!

WWE UNIVERSE: What kind of music do you listen to?

CARMELLA: I really like all different types of music: rock, pop, rap and country. Something you probably wouldn’t guess about me is that I actually really enjoy musical theater! I know every word to every song in the musical “Chicago.”
