She's one of the most controversial members of WWE's roster, for a number of reasons. As a former model, she won an untelevised [[Wrestling/WWEDivaSearch Diva Search]] in 2013 and made her debut on ''Series/TotalDivas'' before making her way to the main roster almost immediately. Due to a combination of her past career, lack of training, horrible technique and the perception that she's using WWE as a stepping stone for Hollywood, she gained one of the largest and most vocal {{Hatedom}}s in wrestling history. After recovering from a ruptured breast implant, Eva was taken off of TV in 2015 to train with [[Wrestling/LondonAndKendrick Brian Kendrick]] before being moved to [[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]] in an attempt to salvage her reputation.

** In all fairness, it's implied that Eva told them that she was going to the Performance Center/[=NXT=], thus part of the animosity towards her is due to her lying. [[note]]Though she claims that she had told them that she would be in LA instead.[[/note]] Her instagram post [[note]]A lion does not worry herself with the opinion of sheep[[/note]] has [[NotHelpingYourCase only made things worse]]. Furthermore, with the acidic reception of her ring work and push on NXT, it's arguable the ladies simply never trusted that her training would be up to standard and perceived her as being gifted a road to success with minimal work.

** In an attempt to throw something against the wall to see if anything would stick, Eva was given a ring announcer's role for a match during Raw. Despite having most of a week to memorize a half dozen names and billed locations, she still mangles a lot of names, including "Ginger Mahal" in [=3MB=], which to him is a BerserkButton.[[note]]This makes sense. At the time he was an entirely disposable low-carder who could be dropped at some point and never be seen again, so every television appearance he had was valuable (sure enough, he was released from his contract afterwards, although he has since returned to the company again). So someone butchering his name, to him, is showing him a distinct lack of respect.[[/note]]

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Regardless of whether Eva decided to give up on wrestling, or whether WWE decided she wasn't worth persisting with any longer, the end of her WWE contract in 2017 marks an admission that she just wasn't working as a wrestler and needed to look for a career elsewhere.

* BorrowedCatchPhrase: While wrestling {{Wrestling/Carmella}} she mockingly shouts of "how you doin'" during the match.



* EvilRedhead: Eva has been a heel for most of her WWE career.



* IAmNotPretty: Eva gets this in one of the season 3 episodes - as she's been unable to exercise too much after her operation. It becomes clear she has some serious issues with body-image. When she's finally taken to a counselor, they perform an exercise where she describes what she sees in a mirror to a sketch artist, and then the counselor's co-worker does the same. Comparing the two (essentially what she sees vs. what everybody else sees) is startling and heart-breaking.

* TokenEvilTeammate: When the rest of the cast turned face, Eva was still booed and thus still presented as the heel of the team. Notably at the big Survivor Series match, she wrestled {{Wrestling/Kaitlyn}} who was the lone face on the opposing team.

** And again for the 'Team Total Divas vs Team BAD & Blonde' match at [=WrestleMania=] 32. Eva is on the former team, who are the faces, and is once again the lone heel.



* TraumaticHaircut: Eva Marie freaks out on the first episode when management has her dye her hair blonde. She eventually is unable to go through with it and decides to TakeAThirdOption - she becomes a redhead instead. What's more is that Eva revealed in an interview that she had literally gotten her hair done the day before. The office had asked her to streak her hair - and then weren't happy, so they then asked her to go blonde.

* ItsPronouncedTropay: Her name is pronounced "E-va", not "Ava".
