3 Reasons Why Carmella's Face Turn Is Terrible, And 2 Reasons Why It's Tolerable
Ever since making the transition from being a cheerleader to a professional wrestler, Leah Van Dale aka the woman known to the WWE Universe as Carmella, has gone from strength to strength. Signing with the WWE back in 2013, very few apart from perhaps 'Mella's longtime mentor Triple H would've thought that she'd make it this big in the world of sports-entertainment.
