During her time in WWE, Eva Marie was one of the most polarizing figures in the entire company — perhaps the most divisive Superstar of the era. She was one of the main cast members of Total Divas from its inception until the end of season six, when her real-life WWE suspension was part of the reason for her being written off the show.
In actuality, Eva Marie was off WWE television entirely from her suspension in August 2016 until her official release, almost exactly one year later. While she did appear on episodes of Total Divas during that time, both she and WWE kept relatively mum about the situation, and she began focusing on outside ventures, including her acting career and launching her own line of clothing and accessories.
Since leaving WWE, she’s had nothing but good things to say about the company, but has made it clear that she is no longer going to be involved with professional wrestling. But many people don’t know about her life prior to being in the public eye, and she is now opening up about the long road she’s had to take to get to where she is now.
