It’s not often that you find a WWE Diva who has both trained at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy and earned a degree in industrial and systems engineering. Beauty, brains and ability? Why, hello there, Eve.
With her blend of versatile fighting skills and ring intelligence, Eve has risen to the top of the division in a short time since winning the 2007 Diva Search. In 2010, she made history by becoming the first Diva Search winner to capture the Divas Championship when she shocked Maryse with a crafty reversal into an impressive bridge pin. Yep, all that flexibility training pays off.
What wasn’t surprising was that her biggest victory took place in front of a large crowd at the O2 Arena in London, England. As a former dancer for the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit Dance Team, Eve is no stranger to the adrenaline of performing for thousands of onlookers. That background has made her a natural to be featured on some of WWE’s biggest pay-per-views such as WrestleMania XXVI, Survivor Series 2011 and Royal Rumble 2011, where she triumphed in a Fatal 4-Way Match to claim her second Divas Championship.
Eve is willing to use more than just her athletic abilities to get ahead, though. She showed that when she admitted to toying with Zack Ryder’s heart in order to get her arms around John Cena in the early part of 2012. The ploy revealed the Diva to be more conniving than WWE fans ever imagined, but it also proved that nothing will stop her from getting what she wants.
