WWE SmackDown Live Superstar R-Truth recently spoke with Lilian Garcia on the Chasing Glory podcast about the Fabulous Truth. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On whose idea it was to pair them together:
“I love Carmella,” Truth said. “It wasn’t her idea [to team up], it was my idea. They just put us together, and it worked out, and it blew up over night. You have to wait for that bone to be thrown at you. Either you are going to eat it up or you’re going to ignore it. When opportunity knocks you have to be ready, and my career, and my character was at the point where the writers didn’t know what to do with it, or what to do with me or where to put me at.
“My character is such an entertaining character that it is a whole other element to the show, so once they put me and Carmella together it was like, okay, now I have something to do. Not only is it something for me to do, but it’s also double the entertainment, because she was a ‘bad guy’, and just by me and her hanging out, people took to it. And in a society up to date, we are pretty much like the Jay-Z and Beyonce of pro wrestling.”
On Carmella’s creativity:
“She is very talented. She is very smart,” Truth said. “A lot of ideas we have she comes up with it herself. She will throw around ideas and ask me if I like something, and I would say, ‘You came up with that?’ That is good! And then I will throw something into it. We gel very good together, and it is easy. Sometimes you can have a partner and it could be a little hiccup where someone wouldn’t want to do something, but with me and her, it is so easy and fun. Always fun.”
