It may have been Eva Marie’s bright crimson locks that first drew the WWE Universe to her attention, but this “newbie” WWE Diva’s viciousness is what people will be talking about when all is said and done.
A former model that traded in the runway for the wrestling ring, Eva Marie’s journey through the ranks of the Divas division was first chronicled on the hit E! reality series, “Total Divas.” There, she navigated personal and professional obstacles in an attempt to become the face of the women’s division in WWE. When she did finally make it to the big time, Eva Marie made an immediate impact, slapping Jerry “The King” Lawler across the face in her first appearance on Raw, and joining alongside The Bella Twins to antagonize their fellow “Total Divas” star, Natalya.
Over the next few weeks, the flame-haired femme fatale continued to mock the “Queen of Harts” during Raw, until she was recruited to team with Brie Bella against Natalya and “Extra!” host Maria Menounos in a tag match at SummerSlam Axxess. Later at SummerSlam, Eva accompanied Brie to the ring for the Bella Twin’s match against Natalya, which ended in similar fashion as Natalya stood tall once again. Yet even though Eva Marie’s first ring ventures ended in disappointing fashion, her debut Raw match ended in victory when she teamed with JoJo & Natalya for a Six-Diva Tag Team Match that saw the trio defeat Aksana, Rosa Mendes & Alicia Fox. On the November 4 edition of Raw, she scored her first pinfall by pinning Tamina Snuka in another Six-Diva Team Match.
Eva Marie competed in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Invitational at WrestleMania 30 for the Divas Championship, but was unsuccessful in dethroning AJ Lee for the title.
In early 2015, Eva Marie has been seen accompanying “Total Divas” co-stars past and present, Summer Rae and Cameron, to the ring for their matches.
With a wide-open future ahead of her and all the cunning in the world at her disposal, Eva Marie will have the Divas division (and the WWE Universe) seeing red for a long, long time. For more on Eva, be sure to tune into E!’s “Total Divas.”
