Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing a match that involves a woman that is all red everything.

Wrestler: “All Red Everything” Eva Marie.

Background Information: Eva Marie is billed from Bay Area, California. She was born in Beverly Hills, California, and was raised in the Bay Area, California, in the city of Concord, California.

She is of Mexican and Italian descent. She has 3 older brothers Neal, Nate, and Nick of the ages of 35, 33, and 30. Her mother Josie is Mexican and father Barry is Italian. She played soccer for Cal State Fullerton until she started modeling, acting, and doing promotional work.

She graduated with a degree in Business Management and a minor in Human Resource from California State University.

In May 2013, she was announced as part of WWE and E!’s new reality show entitled Total Divas that would feature behind the scenes footage of select WWE Divas and a look into their personal lives.

She made her main roster debut under the name Eva Marie on July 1, 2013, on an episode of Raw, in a backstage segment along with her fellow Total Divas co-stars Jo-Jo, Natalya, The Bella Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella), and The Funkadactyls (Cameron and Naomi).

She was announced as Natalya’s protégé on July 4, 2013, on an episode of WWE Superstars, during a match in which she accompanied Natalya to the ring where she defeated Naomi.

She along with the cast of Total Divas appeared on MizTV on July 22, 2013, on an episode of Raw, where she slapped Jerry Lawler claiming to make a name for herself and establishing herself as a heel in the process.

She made her televised in-ring debut on October 7, 2013, on an episode of Raw, teaming with JoJo and Natalya to defeat Alicia Fox, Aksana and Rosa Mendes in an six diva tag-team match.

She made her return to WWE after a nearly three-month absence on the February 14, 2014, on an episode of SmackDown, defeating Alicia Fox in her first singles match on WWE television. However, the match was cut from the broadcast.

On November 9, 2014, after a month of inactivity, she wrote on her Instagram account that she was recovering from an injury. In the Total Divas episode, Twin Leaks, which aired on January 18, 2015, this injury was revealed to be a rupture in her breast implants. She returned to WWE on March 9, 2015, on an episode of Raw, accompanying Summer Rae to her match against AJ Lee. She would go on another hiatus soon after in order to train with former WWE Tag Team Champion Brian Kendrick.

She appeared on NXT on June 3, 2015, stating that she was looking forward to competing in the NXT women’s division while the NXT audience was heavily booing her.

In a backstage segment with NXT General Manager William Regal on June 24, 2015, on an episode of NXT, Regal said he needed to see some proof that she was ready to compete in the women’s division and she responded saying, “No problem, that’s what I’m going to do.”

On July 15, 2015, on an episode of NXT, she announced she will be making her in-ring debut next week. On the following week, she made her official in-ring return and defeated Cassie.

On March 28, 2016, on an episode of Raw, she made her return to the main roster as a face helping her fellow Total Divas co-stars over an assault against Lana’s then-allies; Naomi, Tamina, Emma and Summer Rae. As a result, a 10-Diva tag team match between the Total Divas team (Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Natalya, Eva and Paige) and the newly dubbed team B.A.D. & Blonde (Naomi, Tamina, Lana, Emma, and Rae) was announced for the WrestleMania 32’s pay-per-view pre-show.

On July 19, 2016, on an episode of SmackDown LIVE, she was drafted to the SmackDown brand as part of the 2016 WWE Draft. She turned heel on the following week’s SmackDown, debuting a new long introductory entrance while confronting the brand’s female talents. Through August, she began faking multiple unfortunate events in order to avoid in–ring competition.

She still competes in WWE to this day and is a part of the SmackDown Live brand.


Her favorite food is the candy Hot Tamales. She describes herself as San Francisco Giants fanatic. She married Jonathan Coyle in August 2014.

My Thoughts: Eva Marie is not very gifted as a wrestler, but she does try to become one after all of the criticism being given to her. Even though she doesn’t have charisma or great in-ring ability, she does have a great look, she has presence about her in and outside of the ring, and she does have a character that works for her. All Red Everything!

Video: This video contains a match between Eva Marie and Asuka on April 27, 2016.

My Thoughts: This was a good women’s match that was probably one of Eva Marie’s best matches she had in her career.

Even though Asuka did carry throughout the entire match, Eva Marie did have some offense in this match with her big boot and running senton. Plus, she even managed to showcase her character in this match which was nice to see. However, her selling wasn’t particularly good in this match, but other than that, this was one of the better Eva Marie’s matches in her wrestling career.

Good women’s match where Asuka had to carry Eva Marie, but Eva Marie managed to hold her own in the ring against Asuka.

Even though that Eva Marie still has a lot to prove herself, she is really trying hard to get better so I admire and appreciate that even if she’s not good. I don’t know if she’s capable of being a wrestler, but instead of being a wrestler, she could be a great valet for a wrestler that is trying to get over as she can generate great heel heat whether the crowd really meant it or not, she’s getting a reaction and that’s what matters in wrestling so she’s doing her job relatively well.

I don’t know if she wants to continue being a wrestler or not as she has been doing a lot of movies as of late, but whatever she does, kudos to her. All Red Everything!


After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler herself. Thank you.
