Charly Arnolt comments on idea of a match versus Zelina Vega, says there were missed opportunities

ESPN’s Charly Arnolt states that ‘we’ need the match one day. 

Before making the move to ESPN, Charly Arnolt was known on WWE TV as ‘Charly Caruso’ where she was a backstage interviewer and pay-per-view Kickoff show host. 

While Raw and SmackDown were taping from the Performance Center in Orlando in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, there were multiple back and forth segments involving Arnolt and Zelina Vega. Their interactions stemmed from Angel Garza and Charly’s storyline interest in one another. 

Charly was the focus of a virtual signing hosted by Richie DeGregorio and commented on the idea of a match versus Vega. Arnolt feels there were many missed opportunities. 

We do need a Charly versus Zelina [Vega] match one day. That’s still — you know what? There was so many missed opportunities.

On top of her work with ESPN, she is hosting a post-show for Dana White’s ‘Power Slap’ series on TBS. POST Wrestling conversed about the ratings for that first episode at this link

There are many “missed opportunities” in WWE, but I don’t think this is one that anyone ever has complained about. Who is clamouring for a Charly Caruso vs Zelina Vega match lol.

It could be the next Sting vs Undertaker dream match that everyone talks about for years.


Sorry to take attention away from the Caruso-Vega feud that was withheld from us, but the above comment reminded me of something.

Not including a “cinematic match,” what is the last year when a Sting-Undertaker match would have been good? I think once we hit 2012 or so, we were better off never seeing it and keeping the fantasy going.
