Expect to see more of Carmella on em>WWE NXT in the coming weeks. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady have been shown training the NXT Diva at the WWE Performance Center in a series of weekly vignettes. Courtesy of the official Facebook page of NXT, here is another video of Carmella taking part in a training session with Amore.

Carmella, a former Los Angeles Lakers and New England Patriots cheerleader, began training with WWE last September. She was briefly paired up with Big Cass as his loud-mouthed valet in the spring before moving on to wrestling. She began wrestling at non-televised events in June.

Carmella's real name is Leah Van Dale. She is the daughter of Paul Van Dale, an ex-wrestler who appeared as a jobber for the World Wrestling Federation from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s. In a trivia note he lost to Razor Ramon in the future WWE Hall of Famer's television debut in 1992.
