WWE star Eve Torres was recently interviewed on the “Ring The Belle” show to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Botched RAW Battle Royal where Kaitlyn mistakenly eliminated her:
Sometimes the best stories come from mistakes, honestly. It was basically a botched spot where I was supposed to win and she did, and she won the Battle Royal, and I was in tears afterwards, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve ruined everything!’ But honestly, it created a more interesting story that we then got to, had that not happened, probably would have been a very cookie-cutter women’s title experience, or Divas title at the time. It made it more interesting.
What led to her decision to leave WWE and wrestling:
At the time, I honestly felt like there was a ceiling for me that I wasn’t able to break. And we’ve come so far in where the women’s division is now. If you had told me when I was there that women were going to headline WrestleMania, I would have said get out of here, that’s never going to happen.
Part of it was just where I really felt like I was being controlled by other things that weren’t just me or my skillset or my work ethic and I didn’t like that, but I also was in a personal time in my life, I was getting married, I wanted to start a family, I was helping my husband’s business, which I’m now a huge part of, kind of overseeing and involved in my family business, and teaching women’s self-defense.
