Carmella has been one of the hottest properties in the WWE women’s division. Mella has improved a great deal since her days in NXT. She has even gone on to championship gold, but a recent physical setback seems to be getting in her way.

Queen Zelina teamed up with Carmella to capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. The pair defended their straps against Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. on this week’s Monday Night Raw. Keen-eyed fans may have noticed that Carmella didn’t get physical during the match.

The reason Carmella took it easy has been revealed by Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite Audio (subscription is required). Johnson noted that Mella has been dealing with some nagging injuries. She has been staying away from physical spots that could aggravate them.

“If you go back and watch the match that took place last night on Monday Night RAW, she never tagged in. We are told that she is dealing with some nagging injuries, and that she is still going out and performing, but they are coming up with different scenarios to prevent her from doing anything too physical in the ring.

If you look at the last couple of weeks on Monday Night RAW, she is tagging in, and doing very short things, and getting out. Zelina Vega is doing a lot more of the physical aspects of the match, and this week Zelina Vega did all of the wrestling in the match, she didn’t even tag in. One person told me she’s just hurting really really bad, and she’s just trying to gut throughout.”

The nature of the injury is not known. WWE appears content to keep Carmella on television and have Zelina Vega do the heavy lifting. Hopefully the rest allows Mella to fully heal as soon as possible.
