WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus is a fan of Carmella. Stratus is currently back in WWE and heading towards her WrestleMania match. She will be teaming with the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Becky Lynch and Lita to take on Damage CTRL.
Being back in the fold, Stratus was recently interviewed on the Getting Over: Wrestling Podcast. Stratus gave huge praise for the current women’s roster in WWE. Says she would be willing to work with any of them. She did put over Carmella and boasted about her character work and wants to see what is next for her.
“It was something why I started back at the live events with Becky, seeing her, I would love to face her. I am a fan of what she does. Bayley, Bianca (Belair), Asuka. There is not one woman where I’m like, ‘Nah, I don’t want to work her, I’m good.’ Carmella, to me, she is so good in the ring, but has such a strong character. I’ve always admired wrestlers that have strong characters. You know what that character is going to do before they even do it. I love that. The people who came up as valets, because we had that character development before we were wrestlers, Lita as an example, you knew what she was going to do in the ring before she did it because you knew her character so well. I love [Carmella’s] development. Liv, I love what she is doing. I’m anxious to see her go to the next level. It’s kind of on the peak for her and going to happen for her soon. If they decided ‘stay around and pick a singles match.’ I’d be like, ‘I don’t know, pick one for me. I don’t know who to pick.’ Everyone is amazing and I could do fun stuff with any of them.” (Fightful)
Carmella recently returned to the ring after a hiatus. She qualified and then participated in the Elimination Chamber being eliminated last by the winner Asuka. She has since wrestled in singles matches against Asuka and Bianca Belair. Carmella has formed a tag team over the last few weeks with Chelsea Green.
