Santino Marella Talks How It Is To Work For Vince McMahon

Published

on

Santino Marella recently joined Off Topic for a discussion about his career, including his thoughts on working with and for Vince McMahon. Marella revealed that he enjoyed working with McMahon and looks up to him for many reasons.

“I love Vince,” Marella said. “Vince will put down what he’s doing, turn towards you, make eye contact and say ‘Tell me about yourself’. He’s listening and he means it. He would tell us that anytime we wanted to pitch something to knock on his door and come talk to him. Anytime I’ve ever done that it’s always been well received.”

“Vince doesn’t know how much I look up to him,” Marella continued. “Now that I’m a business owner, I appreciate all that he does even more. He has the final say in everything, and yet he still finds time to workout and spend time with his family. He’s everything you should want to be.”

Marella showed up as Santina at the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble and he went on to say that he was initially hesitant to return as Santina, but wanted to do whatever the company thought was best. He said although he was battling an illness, he was happy with the moment overall.

“Talent relations called me and asked if I was available,” Marella said. “I said sure because of my past significant Royal Rumble moments. In the beginning, I wasn’t too sure about coming back as Santina, but it was whatever they wanted, so I was going to do it to the best of my ability. Two days before I actually got sick and I decided to tough it out, just to get through the day. It was a good moment overall.”

Marella went on to reveal that his in-ring days are most likely over, but he does aspire to be a commentator – though not as the Santino Marella character. He noted that while he prefers to work for WWE, if they do not have a spot for him, he would go elsewhere to find employment.

“I do want to go back into the business, but as a commentator,” Marella revealed. “I would have to be Anthony Carelli because I don’t want to do commentary as Santino. I think there are going to be opportunities for me post-COVID with one of the major companies. I always want to go to WWE first because they changed my life and I’m loyal, but if they don’t have an opportunity, I’ll go somewhere else.”

The Grey’s Anatomy void will soon be over!

Less than a month after Ellen Pompeo put her scrubs back on to kick off production for season 17 of Grey’s Anatomy, ABC revealed the premiere date for the hospital drama. The show will return for a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Nov. 12. Lucky for superfans, it’ll follow the season four return of Station 19 for a stay-glued-to-your-couch crossover premiere event. The Good Doctor, For Life, A Million Little Things and newcomer Big Sky are also all slated to premiere in November.

“Our fall series is now complete with a dynamic lineup of new and returning drama series,” said Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, in a statement. “From fan-favorite shows like Grey’s Anatomy and The Good Doctor to David E. Kelley‘s thrilling new drama Big Sky, our strength is in our storytelling, and we could not be more energized to bring these compelling series to our viewers.”

Sending you lots of healing vibes right now, Niecy Nash!

The 50-year-old Claws star will be on bed rest for the next few weeks and beyond following a nasty accident that left her with a broken foot. Ouch!!

Niecy revealed the news Saturday on Instagram when she shared a teary selfie along with a video of her foot in a cast. Her caption explained:

“B R O K E N I cried like a baby #PrayForMe a sista can’t fly with one wing.”

In the video, she can be heard saying:

“Here’s my broken foot. Broken in not one, not two, but three places.”

Wow, that’s gotta hurt!! Check out the damage for yourself (below):

Nash spilled the tea about her injury in the comments section to Saturday Night Live alum Leslie Jones, who inquired how the actress got hurt in the first place! It must have been one of those freak accidents as the star replied, “I fell & twisted it,” along with an eye-roll emoji.

Awww, that sucks! At least she has loving wife Jessica Betts by her side through it all, though. This definitely cut into their honeymoon time as the ladies tied the knot in a surprise wedding only weeks ago — but they can get creative for now *wink wink* and get back to celebrating for real once the Emmy winner is back on her two feet again.

Rest up, gurl!
