Initially, WWE officials had penciled in Eva Marie for a nice push down in NXT because they wanted to see what she could do with that version of the Divas Championship. Well, that has been on hold, as management is now wanting to put the more experienced Asuka in that position. She is being groomed to work a title program with Bayley in the near future. The hope is that the two of them can produce an awesome match together.

Since management really wants to give her some more credibility in the eyes of the fans, there are plans for Eva Marie to be the one to take the NTX Divas Championship off of Bayley, who recently defeated Sasha Banks to start her first reign as champion. The goal is to make Eva look good enough in the developmental program, so that fans will accept her when she is brought back to the main roster in WWE.

As another sign that she is truly interested in improving as a performer, Eva Marie made an appearance in NXT and stated that she wanted the championship. The belief is that she will spend a couple of months down in the developmental program to gain further training. Eva recently received quite a bit of praise from WWE and the internet wrestling community because she spent time training with Brian Kendrick on her own.

During a recent interview, Eva Marie might have provided a bit of a spoiler for Summerslam. She stated that she was going to be challenging for the Divas Championship at the pay per view. There is a distinct possibility of that happening because management has been more than pleased with her efforts to improve her in ring skills. Eva has been working out in California with Brian Kendrick, who is viewed as one of the better trainers around.
