Eva Marie credits Total Divas with the evolution of women’s wrestling. She claimed that the show helped bring in more women as fans of wrestling.
Eva Marie has had a lot to say since she’s returned to the WWE. While most of them are meant to elicit a negative reaction from the crowd due to her alignment as a heel on the show, her latest comments appear to be a sentiment she genuinely believes to be true.
Eva Marie, who used to be a notable part of the reality show “Total Divas” during her first WWE run, claimed that show led to more women becoming fans of wrestling. In a statement that will surely raise some eyebrows, Eva Marie also told TVInsider that the evolution of women’s wrestling, or the women’s revolution, started with “Total Divas.”

“I’m super fortunate and happy that I had that opportunity. In hindsight, it is kind of crazy I was doing everything for the first time on camera as well. Whether it was in the company filming a reality show, being in a relationship, getting married. It helped me grow so much.”
“It opened so many eyes to more women becoming fans of WWE. ‘Total Divas’ was on the E! Network, so you’re opening up the demographic to so many women to watch that show and channel. Total Divas came around, and now all of a sudden they are watching RAW and SmackDown. It was really where the whole evolution of women and women’s wrestling really started and got talked about.”
Eva Marie is currently on RAW with Doudrop as her lackey, although the two are having a bit of a hard time keeping it together. The angle has had mixed reactions from the audience so far but it seems that Vince McMahon is quite impressed and loves the endgoal of this storyline.
