WWE legend Santino Marella provides an update on his injured daughter Arianna Grace

WWE legend Santino Marella has given an update on his daughter Arianna Grace. The young WWE star was previously injured and had to undergo surgery.

In a recent interview with Fightful (per 411 Mania), Marella noted that his daughter is still rehabbing from an injury. He added that the WWE star is hopeful of returning to the ring by the spring of 2023.

One month since the operation. Decided to take me out on a nice date. A little mussels, a little filet mignon and a little relaxation by the lake. Great need. https://t.co/7U3ZFMS44U

Additionally, the former WWE Intercontinental Champion also noted that he has no problem with his daughter not using the same name in the ring. Marella believes that Grace can follow her own career without any comparison.

Meanwhile, Marella, one of the most popular comedic characters in WWE history, ended her tenure with the company in 2016 after being released.

However, he has performed off and on for WWE since then. In 2019, he appeared at the RAW Reunion show backstage. He also competed in the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble under the Santina Marella gimmick before being eliminated himself.

The 48-year-old has been active on the independent circuit. He also appeared in Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport II under his real name, Anthony Carelli.

Arianna Grace has enjoyed a short run with WWE thus far

In March 2022, Arianna Grace, whose real name is Bianca Carelli, announced that she had officially signed with WWE and would report to the Performance Center.

Hey you guys!!!! Unfortunately I’m injured and having surgery next week. I’m going to do everything I can to recover properly and come back stronger so I can get back to doing what I love, performing for you all! I can’t wait to get back in the ring 🥺❤️🙏🏼

She made her debut on the April 29 episode of NXT Level Up under her current ring name, defeating Amari Miller in her first match. She was announced as a competitor for the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament where she lost to Nikkita Lyons in the first round.

Grace was also paired with Kiana James on TV. Her first win on television was over rising star Thea Hail on the August 9 episode of NXT.
