Have we seen the last of Eva Marie in a WWE ring?
After being drafted to SmackDown LIVE last July, it looked like she was set to become one of the top stars in the women’s division. However, everything came to a screeching halt the following month when she was suspended for 30 days by WWE for violating the company’s talent wellness policy.
While Eva Marie’s suspension ended in September, she has not been at a WWE event since being taken off the road. It is quite telling that she was not in Orlando, Florida for WrestleMania 33 week.
In the meantime, Eva Marie is pursuing acting work in Hollywood and pushing her fashion line (NEM). She got fans talking a few weeks ago when she removed all mentions of WWE from her Twitter profile, and rumors began circulating that she would be parting ways with the company when her contract expires sometime this year.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com addressed her status on Saturday, where he confirmed the rumor as legitimate.
“It appears that Marie and WWE will be parting ways when her deal expires,” Johnson wrote. “The belief among those we’ve spoken with is that each side is remaining silent as contractually, her time on Total Divas hasn’t run out and she’s still required to promote that series. She has not been at a WWE event since being suspended under the WWE Wellness Policy in August 2016. The two sides could always make amends, but it’s not looking likely.”
