10 Things WWE Wants You To Forget About Carmella

8. The Welcoming Committee

James Ellsworth Carmella Natalya Tamina

If you've forgotten about 'The Welcoming Committee', then this writer offers you the most sincere of apologies for bringing them up. Basically, Carmella (with James Ellsworth), Natalya and Tamina hated the thought of Charlotte Flair dominating SmackDown like she had Raw, and so they formed a unit to stop her.

Thrilling stuff, eh?

The short-lived faction was as lifeless as it sounds. It only existed for a brief spell after the 2017 Superstar Shake-Up, and it disappeared before anyone could wonder aloud what the hell the point was. We remember it though, and not fondly. This was a truly crap portion of Carmella's main roster run.

For an example of how instantly redundant the group was, check out their six-woman tag match against Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Naomi at Backlash that year. 10 minutes has never felt so long.
