Eva Marie was suspended in August 2017 for reportedly violating the WWE Talent & Wellness Policy. Eva Marie commented on her suspension, saying that she did not hand in certain paperwork by its deadline. In a statement via Pro Wrestling Sheet, Eva stated:
I am disappointed that this suspension has occurred, yet understand and respect that WWE upholds their Wellness Policy to the letter and won’t compromise on its integrity … I violated policy by not turning in portions of required paperwork in the time frame WWE Medical deemed timely. I look forward to my return! Thank you for your support.
According to TMZ, Eva Marie’s suspension came about from her prescription medication, Adderall.
This was reportedly Eva’s first offense, according to the WWE. Unfortunately for Eva, her husband Jonathan Coyle took out his frustration on the WWE in a public tweet at the time, which read:
When the public finds out why my wife was unjustly suspended they will be absolutely outraged! Official statement and facts coming soon.
The tweet was later deleted.
While many thought that Eva Marie would probably be back in the ring after 30 days, fans are still wondering what is going on with the Total Divas star. Bleacher Report revealed in March 2017 that the WWE was not renewing Eva’s contract. And, last month, Bleeding Cool reported that things aren’t looking good in terms of Eva making a return to the WWE. In a tweet posted by Fitness Magazine, the publication called Eva a “former” WWE Diva.
With Eva Marie not involved with the WWE, does this mean that her role as a cast member on Total Divas will be over as well?
For those who are missing Eva Marie in action, she will be appearing in a movie called Inconceivable, which is scheduled to premiere in June 2017. She plays the role of Linda and her fellow co-stars include actors Nicolas Cage, Faye Dunaway, and Gina Gershon. According to IMDb, the plot description of the film reads:
A mother looks to escape her abusive past by moving to a new town where she befriends another mother, who grows suspicious of her.
Eva Marie is also appearing as a bounty hunter in a project titled Action No. 1.
