Carmella suffers black eye in SmackDown LIVE brawl with Nikki Bella
The Princess of Staten Island has a dent in her crown: A big, bruised black eye.
The moonwalkin’, trash-talkin’ Superstar may have crossed a bridge too far on SmackDown LIVE last Tuesday when she threw a series of insults in the direction of Nikki Bella’s boyfriend, John Cena. In response, The Fearless One unleashed a world of hurt on her WWE TLC opponent and rival of the last several months.
Apart from sporting the battle scars in a grisly Instagram pic the next day, Carmella also noted in a WWE.com exclusive video that Nikki had taken their rivalry “to a whole new level,” and advised her to “bring it” come this Sunday.
The two Superstars square off in a No Disqualification Match at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs, which airs this Sunday at 8 ET/5 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
