Leading the best team with a liberated leader, a new general manager to introduce

Could pink-haired Eva Marie make her return to WWE? Some fans think the former Total Divas star could join the long list of recent rehires in the near future.

Fightful Select’s Sean Ross Sapp cryptically hinted at more WWE comebacks on the horizon and later pointed out that Eva herself liked the social media post. While this seemingly indicated Bronson Reed’s return, it could also mean other stars could return, including Marie.

While some fans aren’t happy about the possibility of Eva Marie returning, others seem more optimistic. If nothing else, Eva has always been able to get the crowd pumping, especially fans on social media.

If the former NXT star returns to World Wrestling Entertainment, what could she do? There are some interesting roles for her and intriguing ways she could appear on TV, and this article will break down a handful of possibilities.

Below are five ways Eva Marie could return to WWE.


#5. She could find Doudrop

Eva Marie’s latest run on WWE programming saw her immediately looking for a backup. She finally found someone by her side, but it was a couple no one could expect.

NXT UK star Piper Niven, who had just emerged as one of the brand’s top Women’s Championship contenders, turned out to be Eva’s bodyguard, but with a twist. Piper’s name was changed to Doudrop and she had a quirky hairstyle and shiny outfit to match Marie’s appearance.

While many fans didn’t like the changes made to Doudrop, she has since been a part of WWE’s main roster. Since she hasn’t been doing much on screen lately, Eva could return to the red mark and reunite with the mighty Scotsman. With tag team titles and a thin division, they could become contenders.


#4. Eva could return for the 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble Match

For decades, WWE has held a big battle royale every January called the Royal Rumble. The fight usually features thirty men, but for the past few years the company has also held a women’s Royal Rumble Match on the same night.

The winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble has a guaranteed title match at WrestleMania. They can challenge the RAW, SmackDown or NXT Women’s Champion at Granddaddy Of Them All. Everyone in the industry wants to be involved in the epic fight.

WWE usually reserves surprises in the titular match and Eva Marie can be a perfect surprise entry. Fans will no doubt boo the pink-haired menace and while his victory is unlikely, nothing will shock the world more.


#3. She could become a manager

Eva Marie is not the youngest superstar in the world. At 38, she’s not necessarily old enough to stop wrestling, but she can decide to use her talents beyond just brawling with the stars of RAW and SmackDown.

The former Total Divas star could decide to manage one or more superstars. She doesn’t necessarily just have to manage, but rather can follow in the footsteps of Valhalla, Zelina Vega, and Rhea Ripley as someone who manages both talent and competition.

Eva could work with male superstars such as Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo who just need a little push to get off the ground. She could again handle Doudrop or another female star such as NXT’s Zoey Stark. However, it might be more interesting if she manages a collection of male and female stars.


#2. Eva Marie could take the role of Mandy Rose in Toxic Attraction

Toxic Attraction has been WWE NXT’s most dominant faction for over a year. Mandy Rose had an impressive NXT Women’s Championship reign that lasted over a year, while Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin won the brand’s tag team titles twice.

Unfortunately, the trio is now a duo. Mandy Rose was controversially released by World Wrestling Entertainment due to content she posted on her private fan site. As a result, Toxic Attraction no longer has a leader.

While many expect Jayne and Dolin to continue as a duo or Sonya Deville to join them, an interesting alternative could be for Eva Marie to return as the leader of the group. Mandy was once a former Total Divas star unrecognized by many fans, just like Eva Marie. Could Marie attempt to replicate Rose’s success?


#1. She could become general manager of WWE RAW or SmackDown

Since brand extension properly took off in 2002, WWE has used general managers to run Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown. While the actual members of authority and their titles may change, the concept is essentially the same: staff who work directly below the management running the show.

RAW and SmackDown do not currently have unique management other than USA Network and FOX. WWE officials speak for Triple H, with Adam Pearce most often featured as the on-screen decider.

If WWE wants to use Eva Marie in a unique way, she could come back to the company as GM. Adam Pearce could be given the role of one brand while Eva takes on the other. Ultimately, the two will want to make their show the best the company has to offer.
