Charly Arnolt…ESPN. WHAAAAAT!!! Been waiting my whole life to say those 4 letters! So yep, here I am—officially an ESPN employee! (No, I am NOT leaving WWE! That’s still my home and I am so happy there!) I’ll be doing a few things at ESPN from time to time for now, including SportsCenter updates and hosting the SportsCenter on Snapchat show. I’m still in disbelief. WWE + ESPN = KILLER COMBO! I am so incredible appreciative and fortunate for both of these wonderful opportunities! Check me out all day today and tomorrow doing SC updates! 😍🥇💯💪🏽 @espn @wwe . . . . #espn #sportscenter #sports #football #anchor #host #basketball #news #wwe #nyc #dreamcometrue #bucketlist #goals #lifeiscrazy
Caruso, whose real name is Charly Arnolt, isn’t leaving the WWE. The company made it clear in a tweet on Friday morning that she will remain with Raw as well. The two sides have not publicly said how Caruso will work around her WWE travel schedule, but the company has shown a lot of public support for Caruso adding ESPN duties to her plate.
ESPN is no stranger to the WWE talent pool. Jonathan Coachman spent time hosting SportsCenter and his own show on ESPN Radio between stints with the WWE. The World Wide Leader also tried to Renee Young away from Vince McMahon and company at one point. Young has since become a key broadcast talent for the WWE.
