On her current run in WWE NXT:
“It’s awesome,” she revealed. “I’m really thankful for Triple H and our chairman Vince McMahon because when I came back from my surgery I basically was like, ‚ÄėI want to be the face of this company and I want to bring something to the table.’ And luckily we have NXT, a phenomenal developmental program, so I had asked to go back and train so that I could be the best I possibly could be.”
On criticism from fans:
“We are in the entertainment business so the fans are everything and without them I pretty much don’t exist,” Eva Marie said. “They mean the world to me, but at the same time I’m actually very happy that they’ve seen my progress from when I first came in to where I’m at now. It’s just also one of those things like to put out there to any little girl or boy, anybody, that if you want something bad enough you have to just keep knocking down those doors and go for it, regardless of what anybody‚Ä¶whether it’s a colleague, family member or whomever is telling you, ‚ÄėNo.’ Just don’t listen to that.”
On what to expect to see on rest of the season of Total Divas:
“You’re going to see Nikki’s surgery and everything like that,” Eva revealed. “So you’re going to see her progress with her injury. You’re going to see me kind of mending my relationships back with the girls and see how that affects Mandy, because during those last episodes I’m mending my relationships with the girls from my past but she gets a little hurt because she thinks that now I’m not like her BFF. So you’re going to see that and then you’ll see Rosa and Bobby going through that huge life-changing experience. So there’s a lot of twists and turns, that’s for sure.”
