Carmella 'Proud' Of Her Role In Becky Lynch's SummerSlam 2021 Return
Carmella was initially announced as Belair's last-minute challenger
Carmella has revealed her pride at her role in Becky Lynch's return to WWE at SummerSlam 2021, saying she feels the disappointment fans felt at her walking to the ring made the pop for The Man's comeback even bigger.
With Sasha Banks unable to compete in her scheduled SmackDown Women's Title match with Bianca Belair at SummerSlam, WWE initially announced Carmella as the replacement challenger. Fans were audibly disappointed in the decision, only for Becky Lynch to make her return and attack Carmella before getting the match for herself.
While Carmella believes Lynch would have still got a great reaction without her involvement, 'The most beautiful woman in WWE' believes her role made the moment even bigger.
Speaking on After The Bell, Carmella said: "It was crazy. I watch them doing packages now and they just write me out of this history.
"First of all, I was part of this huge moment at SummerSlam. If my music had not hit initially, then I don't think Becky would have gotten the reaction she did. I'm going to say that. I know that's pretty cocky to say, but if Becky's music hit first, would she have gotten a great reaction? Of course, she's Becky Lynch. However, when my music hit, they were so mad.
"I'm walking down the aisle, taking my sweet time and relishing in this moment. So, when Becky's music hit, it made it that much bigger. I'm proud of that moment."
