The former Renee Young parted ways with WWE in August of last year and became pregnant shortly there after. The world was first informed of her pregnancy when Moxley mentioned it in a promo on AEW Dynamite in November. In fact the only person to know before hand was Bayley, though not on purpose.

Photo Credit- WWE Let’s get the disclaimers out of the way. John Layfield is a bully, and I don’t condone that behaviour. Nor am I going to claim he was an all time great champion.

Photo Credit: WWE While knowing Eva Marie was set to return to a WWE arena tonight on Raw, it was only hours before the start of the show that WWE announced that she would be competing in a match against Naomi. A decision that seemed to make sense. Naomi is familiar with Eva and a trusted veteran, however what went down was unexpected. Rumours quickly became certain once word of a “muscle” joining the leader of the #EVAlution. Mercedes Martinez was considered by some, but it was actually NXTUK Superstar Piper Niven entering behind Marie. Who by the way, is…
