WWE Diva Eva Marie recently spoke with CraveOnline.com about her time in NXT, her partnership with Nia Jax and her schedule for WrestleMania week this year. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On her partnership in NXT with Nia Jax:
“I think we’re a dominant tag team. There’s nothing really like that on the main roster or in NXT. It was weird how it came about because my first match back on live events in NXT, was with her. I think it was on accident. It was a random pairing because I had just started back wrestling. We had to tag together and she and I were like, ‘Damn. I like this. This can work.’ Then the writers and producers saw it and ran with it and I’m happy they did. I love her and we get along very well and have a lot of the same interests. She’s extremely hard working and we push each other. There’s nothing like being able to work with someone you enjoy and brings out the best in you.”
On the reaction she receives from NXT crowds:
“Yes! 100 percent. I’ve said this before but the last thing you want as an entertainer or athlete, you don’t want to walk out there and be greeted with silence and hear crickets and see people get up to go to the restroom. Before I go out there and my music hits and I immediately hear the reaction, I feed off of it. It makes me put a little more pep in my step and walk out there with extra swag.”
On her schedule for WrestleMania week:
“Last night was I was in Philly and now I’m in Boston. This is the first time I’ve been back at TVs in nine months so that’s extremely exciting. With WrestleMania, I have some exciting things coming up and I’ll be all over the place because I’ll be doing a little bit of double-duty. I’ll be wrestling with NXT too so I’ll definitely be giving everyone a little bit of red.”
