Back in August, Eva Marie and WWE opted to formally part ways. In an interview with ESPN W, the former Total Divas star thinks of it more as a break and insists the two parties remain on good terms. She hopes to make appearances at major events in the future and continue to have a working relationship with the company, but without the structure of a formal contract.
Eva Marie also talked about her time in WWE, her relationship with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, what she’s up to now and more. Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Joining WWE’s main roster after just two weeks of formal training:
“I’m a perfectionist, so I would have liked to have trained more first. However, I truly think opportunities come up once in a lifetime and if you don’t take it, you’re going to miss out.”
Her relationship with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson:
“I love talking to The Rock. He’s done the transition from WWE to the mainstream so well. He always tells me to stay my lane, not to compare myself to other people and just do the work.
“He’s been fantastic and I’m really fortunate to have that relationship with him… It would be great to emulate his career, but we’ll see what happens.”
Life after WWE:
“I want it all. I really want to expand with movies and I would love to land on a TV show, like a Netflix original series, that would be fantastic. I want to do a lot of charity work — I’m a person that’s in recovery [from an alcohol addiction] so I really want to put out that message as well.
“There’s a lot that I want to do, the sky is the limit. I want to dabble in everything. I wish I did have time to relax, but I’m a Virgo and it’s just not in me. I think the hustle is just in my blood — always hungry, never satisfied.”
