Former WWE Diva Summer Rae recalled the time The Godfather thought she was part of the catering staff when they first met.
Danielle Moinet, better known to WWE fans as Summer Rae, was recently announced as one of the entrants in the 2022 Royal Rumble alongside IMPACT Knockouts Champion Mickie James and WWE Hall of Famers the Bella Twins.
As the news broke that the Summer Rae would be competing at the Royal Rumble, she took to social media to thank fans for all of their positive messages. Speaking in clips posted to her Instagram stories, Summer Rae also revealed that the appearance was meant to be a surprise, and she was unaware that WWE were going to make an announcement.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on her Oral Sessions podcast, Moinet recalled the Royal Rumble as one of her favorite events as a wrestling fan, and also recounted a hilarious interaction with WWE Hall of Famer The Godfather, who thought she was part of the catering staff instead of a WWE Superstar in her own right.
“Growing up the Rumble for me is like my favorite pay-per-view. It was always that or Money in the Bank, I thought was really cool. And then of course Mania everyone loves but all of my guy friend’s love Rumble. It’s just fun. It’s exciting. Like when The Godfather comes out with his h**s. I told him that the first time we met I was like, ‘I used to want to be your h** so bad.’ And he was like, ‘Ma’am, are you with catering? Like who are you?’ I was a big fan.”
The former WWE Diva also recalled that she was only called up to the main roster of Monday Night Raw because fans on Twitter “threw a fit” and demanded that she be permanently aligned with the other recently debuting Fandango.h
