Leah Van Dale, better known under the ring name Carmella, is an American professional wrestler, dancer, and model. Standing at a height of 5’5”, Carmella is currently signed to WWE performing on the SmackDown brand.
In her early days, Carmella worked as a jobber for the World Wrestling Foundation, which we now know as WWE. This continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s and it wouldn’t be long before she became a wrestling star and started to perform inside the WWE ring.
Carmella signed her first WWE contract in June 2013 and was assigned straight to the development brand, NXT, in Orlando, Florida. Just over one year later, the American created a bond with Enzo Amore and Colin Xassady, becoming their manager and becoming a powerful figure. 2016 was when Carmella made her main roster debut on SmackDown and developed into a wrestler.
In 2017, Carmella became the inaugural winner of the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match and launched her performing career in WWE. Following the outstanding victory, Carmella became the first women in WWE history to cash-in her Money in the Bank prize, defeating Charlotte Flair on her way to becoming WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion.
One year later and Carmella formed an alliance with R-Truth and in 2019, she won both the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal and WWE 24/7 Championship.
