Former WWE Superstar Eva Marie recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to talk about her elimination from the Big Brother reality TV show this past Friday. Eva revealed recent talks with WWE about a possible return, but she said she was not approached for the women’s Royal Rumble match in late January.
“There has been emails and talk and exchanges back and forth,” Eva revealed. “But no, I was not approached about being a part of the Royal Rumble. I can tell you that. Other things, there has definitely been talks for sure.”
Eva was asked if she feels motivation to return to WWE based on the success that stars like Becky Lynch and RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey are having. She said she would like to come back to shake things up because she feels like she can always bring the heat.
“Sure. I’m always going to have that itch. I absolutely love wrestling. You never know. It’s one of those things where things have totally taken off for the women of WWE,” Eva said. “They are killing it right now. I think it’s so amazing. Of course, if the opportunity arises and the timing is how it’s supposed to be, I definitely would come back to shake things up because I can always bring the heat. That’s for sure.”
Eva also talked about being forced to disconnect from social media while filming the TV show. She called it truly amazing.
“It was amazing. A lot of my work is definitely social media based. Even though being in the house is highly stressful. We’re doing a lot with the competitions, figuring out who to trust and all of these other things. But being able to not have your phone and have actual conversations with people, really be still with yourself, it was truly amazing,” Eva said. “I’ve only been out of the house for 12 hours or so now, but I’m going to definitely going to try to apply that into daily life now and not be so connected with my phone. I don’t know if there is a correlation between the phone usage or because I’m happy doing this experience and feeling good from that. I’m really proud of myself for being mentally tough through it all. Not really having breakdowns or anything like that. I hope I can now use my phone at certain times. Hope I can have longer conversations with friends or my husband or read a book instead of spending so much time on it.”
