Much to the surprise of many, Eva Marie was added to the WrestleMania card last night as the fifth member of The Total Divas.
The Team of The Total Divas, consisting of Brie Bella, Paige, Natalya, Alicia Fox, and now Ms. All Red Everything, will go up against Team B.A.D. & Blonde, which includes Naomi, Tamina, Lana, Emma, and Summer Rae, in a 10-Diva tag team match.
Despite the fact this is more of a Team Bella because of the storyline between Brie and Lana, is evidently clear why the women have been brought together, as they are current cast members on the Total Divas show.

Nevertheless, and as expected, the WWE Universe expressed their disappointment with the addition by slamming the decision on social media. This coincides with the negative reaction Eva Marie has received by WWE fans ever since she made her debut with the company as many believe she can't wrestle.
The WWE have been using this nuclear heat to their advantage though for Ms. All Red Everything's creative booking in NXT, and it has had mixed success. Like many developing stars, mistakes are still being made in the ring but over the time period of a year, she has made a lot of improvement.
In the eyes of the WWE Universe, NXT Women's Champion Bayley would have been more deserving of the main roster call up for this match. However, with the quality of wrestler Bayley is, it would be wrong for the WWE to use her for the first time on the main roster in a 10-Diva tag team match.
She is more experienced and has the technical know how to hold her own in a singles competition and should be debuted in that way. Yet, it is worth noting that Eva Marie has improved her wrestling skills since becoming part of NXT, but for some, it still doesn't warrant a spot on the WrestleMania card so early in her wrestling career.
On the face of it, it looks like this angle for Eva Marie at The Showcase of The Immortals has been booked for the TV show, and it is not a full return for the Ms. All Red Everything on the main roster just yet.
Eva Marie's training with Brian Kendrick in California has been highly publicized through the Total Divas TV show, but for some, she still has a long way to go before she makes a proper return to the main roster, nevermind being featured on the card at WrestleMania.
