James Ellsworth On How Pairing With Carmella Came About

18 posts in this topic

Quote

He also discusses his relationship with Carmella, and who came up with the idea of teaming the two together:

"I think it was last year at the European tour in November, she came to me and said, ‘Hey, I have this idea about putting you with me whenever you’re done with the Dean Ambrose and AJ stuff comes to an end, I have this idea to pitch to them. They put you with me, you fall in love with me, and I use that to my advantage to win matches and get me to the women’s title.’ 

I said yeah, that would be a great idea. I didn’t know her much back then. She went to Vince, and she pitched right to Vince, and Vince loved it. It’s ten, going on eleven months that we’ve been on TV together.

We are good friends. We text all the time. She’s a very, very smart girl, and she’s easy to talk to. We get along great.”

My fave isn't only fabulous portraying a character, she also is creating it ugh :shook: I'm even happier for her now, before Ellsworth she had no direction and rn she is one of the most important characters of the SD women's division, it's crazy that part of this sucess came for an idea she had.

A PROFESSIONAL! :shook:

Going from not knowing how she’s gonna survive one taping without Enzo and Cass, to keeping not only one career, but two afloat, and earning her a huge accolade in the process because of it.

While your favs are pitching ideas for tired ass “first ever”s, and making history, Princess was pitching ideas for longevity and a future. And still made history in the process anyway, twice. Poor the rest of your favs, the closest they’d get to pitching is a food fight.

Wait, that's REALLY smart of her to pitch that, and it really worked in her favor. It kinda saved James career too, and they work really well together.

Vince likes people who are not afraid to take a chance so Carmella going to him and pitching probably made a good impression on the old fuck. Good for her! I hope her cash in story is gonna be great even tho so far it's been kinda meh (not her fault). I just loved the way she won the MITB so I want her cash in to feel even more shocking.

Where did Sasha ever say she was scared to talk to Vince? That was Bayley, hen. The HB's preaching feminism all day but can't praise one woman without tearing down another. Swifties are shook.

While I don't really like the pairing, it was a really great idea and brave of Carmella to go for it. It definitely worked.

Sasha Banks appeared on episode 106 on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast (transcript via wrestlinginc.com). Highlights are below.

On Triple H Being Her Go To & Being Afraid of Vince McMahon: “Hunter’s Papa, so [McMahon] must be Granddaddy. I don’t really get to talk to him too often because I am honestly very scared of him. I am honestly really scared of him. But when he walks by, I try to be cool. Yeah, ‘hello, how are you, sir?’ He’s like, ‘hello, yeah.’ I’m like, ‘we’re good, right?’ It’s mostly just Papa Hunter that I talk to. I’ve known him since NXT. He [has] seen me since the beginning when I was a nobody, so he’s my go-to guy if I ever need help or questions. Yeah, he’s the man.”

    • Carmella speaks on joining Total Divas, her career and more!
      By Mr.wolf2020
      Ms. Money In the Bank Carmella recently spoke with Muscle & Fitness Hers. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:
      What made you decide to join Total Divas for Season 7? I know you’ve worked with a lot of these superstars in the past, particularly Nattie and Naomi, so did you enjoy the opportunity to spend more time with them?
      Of course! I mean, we’re actually always all together on the road, so you know it wouldn’t hurt to just add a camera in front of us. I’m excited because I think this is such an amazing time for the women in the WWE and female wrestlers in general. There’s so much going on in women’s wrestling right now, and I was just excited to kind of show what we do and what we’re all about and I know that Total Divas is about six seasons now and there’s Total Bellas and everything. So I’m excited to kind of share, you know, my story and what I am all about here in the WWE.
      Along those lines, past seasons of Total Divas have covered some really personal moments such as Lana’s wedding and Brie’s pregnancy, and when I talked to Nattie, she talked about how she had to put down her cat and how that was a very hard moment for her to film. Are you OK with having these personal events being broadcasted to the public, is that just something you’re used to, being a WWE superstar?
      It’s definitely not something I’m used to. Being a WWE superstar, I mean…there’s a difference between Carmella on Smackdown Live and Carmella in real life. But, I mean I guess that is what you sign up for when doing a reality show. So, you know, one of the struggles I’m facing this season is a real-life struggle, with my boyfriend Big Cass, who’s on Raw, and I’m on Smackdown. So, you know, we see each other one day a week if we’re lucky. Sometimes we have to go a few weeks without seeing each other, sometimes we’re traveling on different, separate tours, to different countries. But, I mean, it is what it is, so there’s nothing we can do about it, we make do and we make the most of our time together that we do get. So again that is something that we struggle with, and I’m excited because I think you can kind of get to know us because we’ve been very private with our relationship, a lot of people don’t realize we’ve been together for almost four years. So, I’m excited for people to kind of get to know us and see, you know, what we’re all about.
      How do you feel you’ve grown as a superstar since your debut?
      Well, I mean I can’t even—during NXT I was just the manager. I managed [Enzo] Amore and Big Cass. And then when they got drafted I kind of had to start all over again and figure out what I’m going to do and how I’m going to be different. And, three months later I was drafted to Smackdown Live, very last draft pick, most irrelevant, if you will. And I think the last year has done nothing but light a flame under me, I just wanted to prove, you know—you can pick me last, that’s fine, but I’m going to show you what a mistake that was because you should’ve been picking me first. Because, I have a lot to offer, so I just felt like I really had to prove myself, and here I am: two-time Ms. Money in the Bank, first contract-holder here in the ladder match. So, I think I’m doing pretty well for myself. [laughs]
      I know the Mae Young Classic recently happened a couple weeks ago and will be airing on the WWE Network next month. What was your reaction to that?
      Honestly, it’s, I can’t even explain how lucky I feel and happy I am to be in women’s wrestling at this time. It’s a revolution, again everyone keeps saying the women’s revolution, and to actually have the opportunity to go to the Mae Young Classic and watch the matches, I was so inspired. A couple of the girls that I’d never even met before, I had to go up to them and give them a hug after their match. I was like, “Thank you so much you’ve inspired me to be in women’s wrestling.” I already am, but all I want to do is work that much harder, and these girls are just—you can just see the passion in their eyes and their faces, and how bad they want it; and I mean, it’s such an exciting time, it just makes you, you can never get complacent. You always have to work hard, because you never know. Everyone’s vying for a spot and a position just to get here, and I’m going to do whatever I can to stay here and, you know, continue to make history.
