Eric: What did you do prior to the Diva search?
Eve: I went to school for four years and then when I graduated I started pursuing my dance career which led from one thing to the next to the next. I started doing commercial work and live shows. So that was my experience prior to the Diva Search.
Eric: What made you decide to enter the Diva Search?
Eve: Obviously this is the fourth year of the Diva Search and I had been aware of it for the previous years. To me, WWE just represents the epitome of entertainment and that’s what I love to do. That’s my passion. So I decided it would be an amazing opportunity which is the reason thousands and thousands of girls applied for this position and go to these castings. The WWE is just such a wonderful company to work for. It’s on three different networks. It’s huge. It reaches so many people and I decided it was an amazing opportunity and it’s really a company that I respect and a sport that I respect.
Eric: What was your experience like during the Diva Search?
Eve: It was varied. There were times that were really a lot of fun and times that were really nerve wracking. Sometimes you were really put on the spot. We had eight competitions. The first casting was with about 50 girls when they narrowed it down. That was probably the most nerve wracking experience because you really don’t know where you stand. But then once they narrowed it down to eight, you kind of say: “Obviously I have something that they like.” And you just keep going with what your comfortable with, what you’re confident with.
Eric: Do you know which brand you will be working on?
Eve: I don’t yet know which brand I will be working on. Right now it is kind of like the stage where I will be working with the WWE to figure out what my role in the company is. I’m really excited to develop that and see where it takes me and see what I can offer to the organization and each of the shows.
Eric: At this time, do you know if you will be training to become a wrestler?
Eve: As of right now, I think they are going to want me to have some visibility because I am the newest edition to the Diva roster. Right now, I think they are just focused on getting me some visibility. But I would love to undergo some training. Most Divas do undergo some wrestling training. I am looking forward to that possibility but where not sure yet. We’re just going to see what fits me best but I am definitely open for the challenge.
Eric: Which Diva do you look up to as a role model?
Eve: It’s been great meeting all of the Divas. Obviously they are not always what you would expect from when you see them on all the shows. They have all been so supportive and so great. Candice Michelle was actually the first one I met because she was actually at the Diva Search. She was just so supportive and so great and I really looked up to her a lot. Since I’ve been here, I’ve taken a liking to Lilian who I think is a great representation of the brand.
Eric: In a sad coincidence, on the week that you started your career, the greatest woman wrestler of all time, the Fabulous Moolah, passed away. I was wondering if you got a chance to meet her at SummerSlam and if she had given you any advice?
Eve: I didn’t get a chance to meet her. It is such a sad loss for the WWE family and everyone who appreciates this sport, this entertainment. She was someone who was really well respected. But, I never had a chance to actually meet her.
Eric: Is there anything else you would like to tell the fans?
Eve: For all the fans of the WWE, I am so grateful for them receiving me and accepting me into the family and for accepting me up until this point. I’m really looking forward to having more interaction with them and representing this organization well and living up to all their expectations as a Diva.
