Why Eva, why?
WWE Superstar Eva Marie was suspended 30 days for her first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy on Thursday.
The 31-year-old Eva Marie is a member of the SmackDown Live roster, and she was scheduled to team with Alexa Bliss and Natalya in a six-person tag team match against Becky Lynch, Naomi and Carmella at Sunday’s SummerSlam event.
WWE had been running an angle in which Eva’s SmackDown debut match kept getting delayed due to issues such as a tweaked hamstring, a wardrobe malfunction and getting stuck in traffic.
After doing some acting and modeling, Eva Marie broke into WWE in 2013 as part of the Total Divas reality show. Since then, she has worked on the main roster and as part of the NXT developmental brand.
WWE has yet to announce what implications Eva’s suspension will have on the SummerSlam six-woman tag match, but it could potentially open the door for a temporary or permanent call-up from NXT since there are only six women currently on the SmackDown Live roster.
