What’s the story?

WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella has taken to social media so as to fire back at certain fans who’ve been criticizing her wrestling abilities.

Referring to said fans as ‘twitter trolls’; Carmella asserted that she has indeed improved significantly in the wrestling department since December of 2016.

In case you didn’t know…

Carmella has performed for the WWE since 2013 and initially served as a valet for the Tag Team of Enzo & Cass.

Carmella boasts an athletic background in dancing and cheerleading and has earned considerable praise from professional wrestling experts for her promo skills.

The heart of the matter

One ought to note that WWE recently confirmed that Carmella will defend her title against Charlotte Flair at Backlash next month.

Addressing her aforementioned upcoming title defense as well as the constant criticism directed towards her for her wrestling ability from certain sections of fans, Carmella sent out a Tweet reading—

“Carmella can’t wrestle!” - every single twitter troll. I haven’t had a singles match on a PPV since Dec 2016. I’ve been putting in work since then. Can’t wait to prove y’all wrong at #WWEBacklash. Just don’t jump on the bandwagon bc I DONT need your support.”

Furthermore, in response to a fan saying that he’d be surprised if Carmella holds on to her title for more than 2 months, she stated—

“And I’d be surprised if you were able to hold on to a relationship for more than 2 weeks.”


What’s next?

WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella is set to defend her title against Charlotte Flair at WWE’s Backlash PPV which airs from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th.

Author’s take

Carmella is spot-on with her retorts to the fans who relentlessly criticize her wrestling ability.

Most people don’t realize the efforts and sacrifices that go into putting forth an in-ring performance, and we—as fans—ought to respect the WWE Superstars rather than unfairly ragging on and blatantly disrespecting their in-ring skills.
