Just when you thought things were safe, WWE announced via Twitter that Eva Marie has been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of the Wellness Policy. Like Paige, who was suspended yesterday along with boyfriend Alberto Del Rio, this is Eva’s first violation of the policy. This will take Eva out of the six woman tag team match at Summerslam this weekend.
Eva Marie was drafted to Smackdown, but has yet to compete due to kayfabe injuries, wardrobe malfunctions, and traffic delays. There was a chance that WWE had a storyline in place to keep her from even competing this weekend in order to put more heat on her, but we’ll never know for sure now. The rumored plan was to give Eva a huge push and eventually put her into the title picture, so it will be interesting to see how this suspension affects that.
I’m not a fan of Eva, and she has been regularly criticized by many due to her lack of skills both in the ring and in promos. She had no wrestling experience when she signed with WWE and has not shown signs of improving, despite going back to NXT and spending months in training. Eva has been riding on her looks and her Total Divas stardom instead of ability and talent, so this suspension could be very damaging to her.
As of the time of this writing, there is no word on whether or not this will affect Eva Marie’s scheduled appearances this weekend for fan meet and greets, though I suspect that it may. There has also been no word from Eva herself; she has yet to address the suspension and offer any sort of apology or explanation.
