We haven’t seen hide nor hair of Eva Marie inside a WWE or NXT ring since she was suspended in August for a Wellness Policy violation, but in that time she’s also done filming for a role in an upcoming Nicolas Cage movie, and in a recent interview with International Business Times, she talked about how her real dream is to become a huge crossover star like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. No, really.
“After a few months [in WWE] I was like ‘OK, if I could emulate The Rock’s career that would be fantastic to make a crossover like how he’s done…I really want to take the Eva Marie Brand and do both [wrestling and movies] for as long as I can.”
It also sounds like Eva Marie has plans to get back into the ring (or more likely, continuing her old character who never actually got in the ring) in the near future.
“You have to believe in yourself. I’ve put in the work so I do think I’m ready to come back and shake things up because I think the WWE Universe is tired of seeing something repeated, meaning some people possibly going against each other. There’s not one person like Eva Marie, and I definitely think that I’ve shown that, and I think that’ll be a huge dynamic when I come back.”
Hopefully at some point, she also finally learned how to wrestle.
