Details On Why WWE Split Up R-Truth And Carmella

Following the WWE Draft, comedic duo R-Truth and Carmella were split up so Carmella could join her boyfriend, Corey Graves, on SmackDown.

The most recent WWE Draft has shaken up the promotion’s roster, mixing up Superstars across RAW and SmackDown. This draft, just like the Superstar Shakeup earlier in the year, has seen a number of real-life couples stay together. One pair, however, have seen their partnership split in the aftermath of WWE’s decision making.

Turns out that the comedic duo of R-Truth and Carmella were split in order to keep Carmella and her boyfriend, Corey Graves, together. Graves will be continuing his role as a commentator on Friday Night SmackDown. This led to Carmella being drafted to the blue brand. R-Truth, meanwhile, stays a part of the RAW roster as the current 24/7 Champion.

Other real-life WWE couples that stayed together post-Draft include the WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and the RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Charlotte Flair and Andrade were also kept together, as were Zelina Vega and Aleister Black. Another couple, Naomi and Jimmy Uso, were not a part of the draft. It’s been reported that there are still no current plans for The Usos or Naomi at this time.

It was noted by Dave Meltzer, via Wrestling Observer Radio, that WWE had no intention to split up Andrade from his manager, Vega. He also mentioned that Aleister Black, Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy all have a significant supporter in RAW’s Executive Director, Paul Heyman.
