Eva Marie is on her way back to WWE. We’ve heard in recent weeks that WWE is planning to pair her with another woman who will serve as her bodyguard/assistant.
According to the Wrestle Votes Twitter account, Piper Niven and Mercedes Martinez are in the running to be at Eva Marie’s side when she returns.
Eva Marie’s last match for WWE took place on July 10, 2016. She lost to Becky Lynch on a non-televised live event. Almost 5 years later, vignettes for her return began airing on the May 3rd, 2021 edition of RAW.
Shortly after the vignette aired, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer said she will be packaged as a babyface. “The idea is that she’s a supermodel who has worked hard to become a supermodel and somehow, yeah, that makes her — the idea is she’s a celebrity who wants to help other people. So, she is a babyface,” Meltzer said.
According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men podcast, Eva Marie’s return is currently scheduled for the June 21st edition of WWE Raw.
