Eva Marie Speaks Out on Total Divas, Learning To Work, NXT, How Boos Affect Her



– Eva Marie spoke with FanSided for a new interview. Check out the highlights:

On how boos and criticism affects her: “When I first started, definitely. I would be lying if I said it didn’t just because I am human. Walking into the WWE I was brand new; I did not know how things worked. Deep down I wanted everyone to cheer and adore me but this is the WWE where it doesn’t work that way all the time. There’s a good guy and a bad guy, and I am pretty badass bad guy. Now that I have the training behind me, I think that really shows I do have the skills and talent to become a well-rounded wrestler. I think it goes back to me asking Vince [McMahon] and Triple H on wanting to go back to NXT to hone my craft and learn the ropes. I feel extremely confident when I walk out there now and I embrace the boos and the craziness from the WWE and NXT Universe. At one of the live events somebody had a sign that said “If Eva Marie Is Here We Riot.” I thought that was pretty cool. The crowd reaction is something that I definitely love. When I first started if I walked out from behind that curtain and heard a pin drop or deafening silence, then you have to look at switching something up. Now, I am embracing my heel character to the fullest.”

On if she thinks she was brought up too soon: “I don’t think I was brought up to soon. I mean, everything for me has come in so quickly. I got my developmental deal at the same time “Total Divas” was debuting. I was put in a position with an amazing opportunity and if anybody was given the same, you better take it and run. Did I have the wrestling training behind that? No I didn’t. For me I’ve always been an athlete and wanted to be the best at everything I do. Plus, with NXT and the facilities they offer, I would be silly not to take that on. Look at me now though, I am on the road and continuing to improve each and every day. You will see the trials and tribulations on this season of “Total Divas” of how I am back in the ring and what it takes for me to get those skills sharp each and every day. With all my cast members they all have been wrestling for a very long time or were born into a wrestling family, so they have a lot of matches under the belt which is great experience. Now, I am getting my feet wet and getting that experience I need. That is what I think is awesome in regards to my story You get to see my struggle and to see how I evolved over the last couple of years.”
