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.

Unless you're completely oblivious, many people are aware that WWE likes to change plans rather frequently. Initially, Lana was supposed to have been given a huge push in the divas division. That has been set aside because management now wants to give that exact push to Eva Marie instead. They feel that Eva has been putting in a lot of time and effort to improve her performance.

While WWE has since decided to change back to their original plans, there is some merit to the idea of Eva Marie replacing Jerry Lawler. There was a strong push by certain individuals backstage for well over a month now to do a youth movement. By having someone as attractive as Eva as the host, the feeling is that it would make the hall of fame ceremony more of a draw for Wrestemania. The change could still take place next year.
