Santino Marella

Former Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella confirmed that his daughter Bianca Carelli has signed with the WWE and will be reporting to the Performance Center soon.

Back in May of 2021, the Milan Miracle took to social media to announce to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon that his daughter was “a woman now” and shared the stunning photo of his daughter to his one million Twitter followers, saying she’s been “coached since day one to be a total superstar” and suggesting her for a WWE role after graduating.

“Hi @TripleH & @StephMcMahon remember my little daughter @CarelliBianca? Well she’s a woman now, and has been coached since day one to be a total superstar! Biology degree is done this summer, then she’s ready for her time to shine!”

Now, speaking on Stories with Bradshaw & Brisco, the former Intercontinental Champion confirmed that Bianca’s dreams of becoming a WWE Superstar are one step closer as she’s signed with the company and will soon be reporting to the Performance Center. The proud father bragged about her aptitude and said she’s going to be a top-tier player.

“My daughter is starting at the PC in two weeks. She got hired. She’s a beast, man. She’s going to be an absolute top-tier player. She was identified from a young child. You know, she won her school speeches and she was Ms. Teen Ontario, she’s a television personality and she’s tall and she’s strong.”

Santino Marella continued, saying that he can’t wait to watch his daughter perform at WrestleMania as a parent and wants to remain incognito. He also noted that he has two young children at home and is beginning a new phase of his life in the country with his family.

“In a couple of years, I can’t wait to go to WrestleMania just as a parent going to watch their kid. I don’t want to do anything, I don’t want to sign, I don’t want to talk to anybody. I’m just here to watch my kid and I just cannot wait for that. But now. I’ve got a three-year-old and a six-month-old. And this whole new chapter of growing up in the country with like, chickens, it’s a whole.”

Prior to signing with WWE, Bianca Carelli trained to be a professional wrestler at the Battle Arts academy owned by her father. She previously tried out for a chance to join the Performance Center in 2019 and also made her NWA debut at the promotion’s all-women’s event EmPowerrr.

Speaking in the past with Slam Wrestling, Bianca Carelli noted how she wants to be seen as more than just Santino Marella’s daughter, but is proud of her father’s legacy in WWE.

“I do notice that some people want me to be named Santina and I often get grouped as ‘Santina’s daughter’. My dad was a very funny character in the WWE so I don’t mind, but when it’s my time I want to be seen as being my own person in the ring.”
