The often criticised but much talked about Eva Marie is on the verge of becoming the face of the Women's division on SmackDown. She has everything Vince wants in an entertainer; looks, presence & marketability. Many fans see her as the female Roman Reigns, a wrestler with the company's undivided backing despite limited in ring ability.
I can understand this viewpoint but I'm here to tell you there's more than what meets the eye with the #AllRedEverything star. Here are a few things you may not have known about Natalie Eva Marie.
#1 She used to be an alcoholic
Every great star has a troubled past and Eva Marie is no different. The 32-year old is a self-confessed former alcohol addict. In her teenage years, she admitted to struggling to be able to control her alcohol consumption at parties and party gatherings with friends. As she entered her early twenties, she used body-building and fitness to tame her cravings and put her life back on track.
When you hear things like this it always makes you appreciative of what wrestlers have been through to get to this point. WWE Superstars are role models of what the masses aspire to be and Eva's troubled past only galvanises her status in the eyes of the WWE Universe.
