Re: The Princess of Staten Island: Carmella megathread !
id like to take this opportunity to restate that i've officially become a huge Carmella mark. I was on board as soon as they turned her heel and I want it to be known that I was on the bandwagon from the beginning.
To me this is one of the best examples of what a divas division with EFFORT looks like. For once we have a woman debut that doesn't get thrusted into the title picture IN HER FIRST FEUD....or even her SECOND FEUD. For yearrrrrs it's been the exact same formula. New woman comes in and goes right after the belt..wins it and keeps it until the next person debuts and so forth...but that's not how a legit division should opperate. It should operate with different tiers, different storylines happening at once, all with various levels of intrigue, and that's exactly what we have with someone like Carmella. She debuts and her first thing is to go after Nikki Bella. Not for the belt, but just because she's a bitch and wants to make a name for herself. GREAT! And better yet, she loses. I love that. It makes sense, why would she win a feud against the "longest running divas champ" in her first year.
AND EVEN BETTER is how she RECOVERED from that feud loss. See...this is what kills so many MEN wrestlers. After they lose a feud, they kinda just move on, but not Carmella. She gets in a last laugh by putting Natalya under the boss, which is GREAT for her character! She lost the wrestling matches, but, her character is still in tact. ANd NOW she's doing her OWN THING!!! AHHH i love that. She's doing her own inner storyline wth James Ellsworth.... i love that so much. Yeah, let her go out there for a month or two, wrestle jobbers, and do the comedy thing with Ellsworth. Thumbs up!
Oh and not every woman has to be a 5 star wrestler (even though she's totally acceptable).
in a nutshell i think Carmella is the best female CHARACTER!! on the show.
I'm going to say it.. Carmella/Bliss debuts > Sasha/Bailey's (and that's SHOCKING)
the brand split sucks
