Eva Marie is back in WWE as she returned to television on Monday’s episode of RAW.
It happened when she was supposed to wrestle Naomi in a singles match. However, Piper Niven worked the match on behalf of Marie and went over in a complete squash match. Marie announced that she had won the match.
For whatever reason, Niven wasn’t given a name or even acknowledged by the announcers for her work in NXT UK.
This was expected as it was announced last week that Marie would appear on this show. WWE had been airing vignettes to hype her return. The two sides came to terms the week of September 20, 2020.
Marie started her first stint with WWE in 2013 where she was part of the first season of Total Divas. She started training with Brian Kendrick and worked as an in-ring competition in 2015. After a run in NXT, she was called up to the main roster.
However, things went south when she was suspended for a violation of the WWE Wellness Policy in 2016. Her last match came in July 2016 at a live event against Becky Lynch.
She never returned to action and later departed from the company. Since then, she has worked as a model and actress.
Since leaving WWE, she had stated in various interviews that she had unfinished business with the company. As a result, she previously expressed an interest in returning to WWE.
