News on Eva Marie’s return to WWE Raw

May 27, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

WWE reportedly has plans for Eva Marie to help get another female Superstar over.

As we’ve noted, WWE started airing new “Eva-Lution” vignettes for Marie’s return to RAW several weeks ago. While Eva has been training at the WWE Performance Center as of late, the language in the vignettes have led to speculation that Eva may be acting as some sort of manager on the red brand.

In an update, Fightful Select reports that the working plan is not for Eva to wrestle on RAW, but for her to be a vehicle to help get another female Superstar over. There is no word yet on who that will be.

It was first reported last fall that Eva’s WWE return was in the works after she parted ways with the company in 2017. This new report notes that the deal to bring Eva back was worked on for a long time before the vignettes started airing, and had nothing to do with WWE releasing other female talents.

Stay tuned for more.

    How can one who is not over get someone over?

    I mean, getting the other person cheered simply because they kicked Eva upside her head would just be a natural reaction. Most people dont like Eva. She doesnt get heel heat, she gets a please just go and dont come back” response.

    From a WWE booking standpoint, the obvious choice is Lana. I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes as I typed that, so it must be the way they’re going.

    Whether it is right or wrong Eva Marie is worth more to the company than the likes of Shayna basler, Nia jax, ruby riott etc put together. She isn’t going to be on a huge salary and even the fact she is making a return in some way has gained page after page of internet stories, sponsors are more likely to want Eva Marie’s image aligned with them so it makes business sense to have her back. The level of personal hatred she receives isn’t exactly fair though
