The pomp and circumstance was on OVERLOAD as SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella put on a Royal Mellabration complete with a town crier and royal guards. The Princess of Staten Island then entered the ring, which was decked out in a red carpet and leopard print, and requested (then demanded) the WWE Universe cheer and then bow for her. Princess Mella then insisted that she was better than all of them and every current female Superstar and WWE legends like Trish Stratus & Lita… combined.
Having heard enough, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige hit the scene in front of her home country faithful to inform Carmella that she may need to cut the celebration short to start preparing for her challenger for the SmackDown Women’s Title at WWE Money in the Bank… Asuka.
Carmella was livid as she left the ring, while all Asuka could do was smile knowing the opportunity that now awaited her.
