NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
WWE superstar Carmella doesn’t always show her comedic skills on TV, but this take on The Rock will leave no doubt in your mind.
The former SmackDown Women’s Champion, who is set to face Zelina Vega in the semi-final of the inaugural Queen’s Crown tournament, shared a hilarious video on Instagram this week as she donned a bald cap to deliver a perfect take on Dwayne Johnson himself.
Miming to an old promo from The Great One, Carmella has his mannerisms down to an absolute tee, getting all the right pauses and expressions as the audio plays over the clip.
The captioned the video: ‘If you SMELLLLLLLL what Mella is cooking. Sorry the bald cap is so ratchet, need a bigger hair and makeup budget. @therock’
As far as we’re concerned, she nailed it!
The likes of WWE star Natalya, Jessie McKay – formerly Billie Kay in WWE – and plenty of fans seemed to agree, as they flooded the comments with crying laughing emojis.
In the original promo, The Rock said: ”Finally… The Rock has come back… to Philadelphia. Well The Rock isn’t actually in Philadelphia right now, live, but The Rock is on his show, SmackDown!
‘And right over here to The Rock’s right in the People’s Kitchen, The Rock is cooking up something special, something from right here in Philadelphia, something Philadelphia’s gonna love – hundred percent, grade A, best on the planet Philadelphia cheese steak!
‘Nah, The Rock is only kidding.’

The fantastic clip came shortly after Carmella shared an unfiltered and makeup-free snap to take a stand after receiving abusive messages and threats from vile people online.
She wrote: ‘To be completely honest, being on Instagram and Twitter recently has been hard. The hate and the threats are at an all time high, it’s quite disturbing actually. I usually just try to post and leave it alone, but it’s hard to NOT read the negativity sometimes. Y’all can be so cruel.
‘Luckily, I know who I am. I’m not going to let you get to me. I just wanted to post this as a friendly reminder not to believe everything you read and see on the internet. Do you, for you.’
