Who Vince McMahon Wanted Instead Of Eva Marie In The Total Divas vs. B.A.D. & Blonde Match

Eva Marie

Eva Marie portrays a heel in NXT, but she’ll apparently be a face on Sunday. WWE announced after Raw that she will be competing in a 10-Diva Tag Team Match this Sunday on the WrestleMania Kickoff.

At the event, Eva Marie will join Natalya, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox and Paige (Total Divas) to take on Lana, Tamina, Naomi, Emma and Summer Rae (B.A.D. & Blonde).

WWE provided this clip of Eva Marie returning to Raw in a move the Brooklyn, New York crowd didn’t seem to care for.

Eva Marie emerged after Emma defeated Paige with the help of Lana in a singles match. A brawl ensued on the outside between the nine participants in Sunday’s tag team match before the redheaded Diva returned to the ring and charged after Lana.

After the ring was clear, with Eva Marie and Paige, Natalya, Bella and Fox standing tall, the four faces seemed both shocked and annoyed that Marie decided to join their team.

It was Triple H’s decision for Eva Marie to join the Total Divas squad against B.A.D. & Blonde. Vince McMahon, who is interested in promoting NXT Women’s Champion Bayley to the main roster, wanted her to fill out the final spot on the babyface side. Hunter was not in favor of this, and explained to Vince that Eva Marie would be a perfect fit for the Total Divas team. He also pointed out that Bayley is part of the “wrestling” division and not the Divas division.

While Vince likes Eva Marie, he felt she would garner too much heat from fans. Creative plans call for Eva Marie to continue to act as a heel on the team.
