WWE Celebrity Carmella on her new wine enterprise “Capo Cagna” & extra
As a former WWE SmackDown Girls’s Champion, a Cash In The Financial institution winner and the winner of the latest WrestleMania Girls’s Battle Royal, Carmella is without doubt one of the prime feminine wrestlers within the WWE immediately.
Additionally a solid member on Complete Divas as of late, Carmella has been engaged on her fair proportion of mainstream tasks each now and previous to her profession with WWE.
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of interviewing Carmella — though addressing her as “Leah Van Dale” — by telephone about her new wine, Capo Cagna. Translating to “Boss B***h” in Italian, Capo Cagna was a reputation chosen by the WWE Celebrity herself, partially to mirror her Italian roots. A number of quotes from that interview with The Hype Journal are under.
On when she first grew to become all in favour of wine:
“After I turned 21. I by no means actually drank wine earlier than and one in all my girlfriends was like, ‘No, it’s important to strive it.’ At first I actually didn’t actually prefer it, after which I attempted increasingly differing types.
“I began with whites after which I dabbled in to reds, and I like crimson wine as effectively. I suppose the remainder is historical past. After I’m on the street and it’s been an extended day touring, I simply wish to unwind with a glass of wine on the finish of the day.”
On the place extra tasks and merchandise are coming beneath the “Capo Cagna” banner:
“That’s an important query. I do not know. To be sincere, I by no means thought I might be within the WWE. I by no means thought I might be a wrestler. That wasn’t one thing that I believed a woman of my dimension may do. However I’m right here and I’m doing it and having a good time with it.
“It’s led me to so many different alternatives, once more right here with the wine and with out my profession within the WWE, I wouldn’t have this platform and the fanbase that I’ve to discover the world of wine and create my very own model and every part like that.
“However I form of wish to let issues unfold the way in which they’re speculated to do. I don’t actually have a plan. It’s form of like, “Go together with it.” As a result of I imply it’s figuring out for me to date to get by means of my complete whole life, I’m having a lot enjoyable performing and touring the world and having a lot enjoyable studying concerning the wine enterprise.
“I’ve a level in advertising, so I’m actually making an attempt to place that to make use of. Not solely advertising myself and my Carmella character but in addition Capo Cagna.”
On her proudest profession accomplishment to date:
“Changing into Smackdown Girls’s Champion in WWE, as a result of like I stated, it wasn’t one thing I ever thought I might do. I by no means thought I might be a wrestler. So to coach and do it for such a brief time period and attain the peak and develop into champion, that claims loads about work ethic and the way arduous I attempted and labored at turning into a wrestler.
“To me that’s the head, that I can go down in historical past as being champion, as a result of there’s nothing larger than that. So I really feel very lucky for that.”
