Charly Arnolt Initial Career

Caruso had quite a challenging start during her beginning stage of journalism.

While Caruso was pursuing her further studies in university, she was also engaging herself in various internships to gain experience.

After her graduation, she moved to West Virginia to work at a TV station, named “WSAZ-TV’.’

Though she carried on with her work there for about eight months, she was not very comfortable with the idea of having to work alone due to the kinds of stories she had to cover in unsafe places.

Eventually, she moved to Kansas in order to work for another TV station, WDAF-TV, where she finally had a work team.

However, Charly still had to cover some violent crime-related stories from time to time. She said:

“Even though we were covering some kind of crazy situations like SWAT scenes and double homicides, at least I was with someone and surrounded by other people. It’s funny because I wanted to be a crime reporter from the very beginning. That was initially what I saw myself doing in my career, and I minored in criminal justice… So, I thought that that was what I wanted to do…”

A couple of years passed by and she came to a realization that crime journalism is not what she is supposed to be doing. After pondering over her career path, a lot, Arnold decided entertainment journalism would suit her more.

Soon, she moved back to Indianapolis to work as a sports journalist.

Arnolt said,

“That’s where I got to start doing sports and I was like, ‘This is it. I love this.’ It’s like the worst thing that happens is your team loses, but guess what? You play again next week, and people are watching you to be entertained, and they are watching you to smile, not to, you know, find out all the, you know, terrible things that are happening in your neighbourhood.”

Thus, that is how she found her true passion and interest in a particular field of journalism.

WWE Entry

In 2016, a close friend of hers, Tony, offered her a backstage ticket to a SmackDown event and how could she not accept the offer being a huge WWE fan since a young age?

There, at the event, she showed her resume to WWE’s senior director of talent relations, Mark Carrano. 

Caruso was not quite sure about her career in sports journalism as it was at its initial phase.

However, there was no doubt that she was making her big move into the industry. After a few months, Mark introduced her to Monday Night Raw commentator, Michael Cole.

Cole was impressed by her talent immediately but not a single job was vacant at that time.

Eventually, when Brandi Rhodes announced that she is leaving WWE, it was as if a golden opportunity came knocking on her door.

Charly aced the interview and got the job, but as she had already agreed to a sports anchor role in Washington, she was having a hard time making a firm decision.

Later, she took the role in WWE after taking advice from her friends and agent.

Before joining the WWE, she co-hosted a national radio show “The Bob and Tom Show” and also hosted her own web show “BackTalk Ball.”

Her debut in WWE began on August 2, 2016, as a ring announcer and soon, she embarked on her main role as a host and backstage interviewer of wrestlers.

Since then, she has become an important member of WWE, whose fans are more in number compared to some acclaimed wrestlers.

On one hand, Caruso agrees that she found the right career choice for herself but on the other hand, she also admits that there are some drawbacks.

“It’s been such a great platform, and getting to meet all different types of people and have this amazing experience on an international platform and travelling… Sometimes you’re just like, ‘I just wanna sleep in my bed,’ but, I mean, like any job, you take the good with the bad. Traveling Isn’t bad, but it does get to be a lot sometimes.”

ESPN Career

Having earned a lot of fame in the WWE industry, Caruso seems to be dominating the journalism industry with her undeniable talent and charm. 

Her fans were quite moved by the news of Caruso being an official new employee at ESPN as they thought that she’d be leaving WWE. In order to clear the confusion and fuss, she dedicated an Instagram post that stated:

“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 on Snapchat show. I’m still in disbelief. WWE + ESPN = KILLER COMBO! I am so incredibly appreciative and fortunate for both of these wonderful opportunities.”

Although working two jobs at two of the most renowned sports channels is surely hectic, Charly being a career-oriented woman, eventually makes it work smoothly with the help of her colleagues.

Charly Arnolt’s Relationship Details

Mostly busy at work, Arnolt has rarely time left to do anything else. As a result, Caruso did not pay much attention to dating.

Furthermore, she also mentioned that she finds dating tough because of the advanced socials and technologies, especially in NYC.

However, let’s not confuse it as she isn’t interested in date because according to her, she would love to be involved with someone romantically, only if the one she dates is willing to accept and learn about her and her lifestyle.

As of 2024, Charly hasn’t publicly talked about if she is dating someone or not.

Previously, rumours about Caruso dating wrestlers had circulated around the news. Fans assumed that she had been dating a professional wrestler, Seth Rollins, after he posted a picture that only showed a woman’s back on Instagram.

As Caruso had interviewed Rollins a couple of times, fans guessed that the woman could possibly be her. However, Caruso and Rollins never brought up the topic.

According to rumours, Charly also dated Angel Garza, a Mexican wrestler. They started interacting when he debuted in RAW, and later, they were seen flirting at interviews too.

Eventually, fans noticed real chemistry between them and also, how good they looked together on the screen. However, neither Charly nor Angel has talked about it.

As none of her rumoured relationships has been official, we must reach the conclusion that she is most probably single.

However, as mentioned earlier, Charly is down for a relationship or even marriage, given that person meets her few terms and conditions.
