NXT Women’s Champion Bayley recently spoke to Rolling Stone and she had a few things to say about Eva Marie. Read some highlights from the interview below:
And this might sound bad, but I really want to work with Eva Marie, just because it seems like that’s what people want.
My fans don’t like her, so I don’t want them to be like, “Oh, why do you want to work with her?” But the reason is because she’s a different competitor and I think we’d have an interesting dynamic. I get a lot of tweets about Eva, and I can’t blame the fans, because all they really know is what they see on Total Divas, and they base their cheers on that, I guess. I’ve never personally had a problem with her; I don’t see her much, but the shows that she has done, I’ve seen her progressing each match, each show, each training session. I know that the drive is there to get better, so it’s up to her to see how far she can go.
We’re back from the commercial break and the entire WWE roster of Superstars and Divas, as well as officials and authority figures are on the stage in pink for Susan G. Komen and Breast Cancer Awareness. John Cena is in the ring with a group of breast cancer survivors and Roman Reigns. Cena talks about WWE partnering with Komen for the 4th year. He says it gives him great honor to stand in the ring with real heroes. Cena gets the crowd to give it up for the group of the cancer survivors in the ring. A “yes!” chant starts up. Reigns says his motto is usually one vs. all but it’s all vs. one in the fight against breast cancer. He plugs the pink merchandise on WWE’s Shop website. Reigns says it’s a huge honor for him and WWE to join the fight once again. Reigns ends it with a “believe that” as he and Cena shake the hands of the women in the ring.

Eva Marie’s long journey back to the ring finally reaches its pinnacle with her first return match at WWE NXT.
Even though she understands that WWE is hoping to establish “street cred” at Full Sail University before sending her out on the road full time, Eva’s petrified she won’t get any kind of a reaction when she comes out.
That fear is put to rest when she steps out of the curtain; she wrestles a fine contest, hits her new finisher — Sliced Red — with no problem, and the comeback begins in earnest.
The commentators take a moment to look back at the controversy created by Eva Marie’s last match. We get an old school promo clip where Eva Marie thanks the referee for not giving into the bias opinion of the crowd, for recognizing her shoulders were off the mat.
Eva Marie vs. Carmella
Carmella goes right after Eva Marie. She throws Eva Marie to the outside and taunts her with a moonwalk. Upon Eva Marie’s return to the ring, she goes for a quick pin, receiving a 1 count. Eva knees Carmella hard and suplexes her for a 2 count. Eva drags Carmella by the hair to the corner and drives her head into the turnbuckle a few times. She elbows her and then delivers a big boot, knocking Carmella down for a 2 count. As she grabs Carmella’s hair again, she yells “How you doin?!” Another suplex and another 2 count.
Eva Marie goes for another suplex, but Carmella stops it and rolls up for a 1 count. Eva slows things down with an arm stretch submission. The crowd is shouting for Carmella, and she manages to get to her feet and deliver a hurricanrana off the turnbuckle. Lou Thesz press…and another one. Staten Island shuffle, followed by a spear on Eva into the corner. Eva’s face meets Carmella’s boot on the top turnbuckle, and we have a… what should have been a 3 count but the referee refrains from calling the pinfall. He says Eva Marie had her foot on the rope. Carmella can’t believe it. She tries to grab Eva but Eva throws her to the ramp, and Carmella lands awkwardly. The referee begins to count and Carmella doesn’t get up before the 10 count.
Winner: Eva Marie via countout.
Post match we see a replay that confirms Eva’s foot was on the rope, as she celebrates another win in NXT.
While Eva crams in her last bit of training and continues to coordinate her career with new manager Dany Garcia — who is also The Rock’s manager — Jonathan is feeling left out, as she has less and less time to spend with him. The two plan a day off, but it doesn’t go to plan – Eva has to answer a call from Mark Carrano which brings great career news. Jonathan decides they should throw their phones out of the window, but Eva accidentally drops her and it breaks!
After a training session, Brian Kendrick helpfully opines to Eva that success in her profession may come at the cost of relationship time, and a balance is necessary. Eva decides she needs to make more of an effort with Jonathan and will try to find a balance.
Just as the couple begins to work things out, Eva gets an invite to the premiere of “San Andreas” from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson himself, and it’s off to the races once again. Jonathan says he’ll always support Eva no matter what.
WWE Legend Mick Foley recently posted a blog on Facebook, where he offered up his opinion on Eva Marie. Check out what he had to say below:
WITHIN ONE YEAR #WWE Diva #EvaMarie will be in a great match at a big show with #SashaBanks #BeckyLynch #MsCharlotte #Bayley #Natalya or #Paige I’m not saying the match will be all her doing, but history doesn’t remember who came up with the ideas, or who carried the match; history remembers who was in it… Eva Marie’s improvement from week to week in recent matches has shown me she has the drive, determination, and that intangible “it” factor necessary to accomplish something special with one of the super-talented ladies of WWE/NXT.
