Hours before the show, WWE revealed not only Eva will return but she will also be wrestling former Women’s Champion Naomi as well. However, The ‘All Red Everything‘ did not compete in the match, just like the old times.

Marie came out with NXT UK superstar Piper Niven (official name not announced yet). Niven rushed to the ring and told the referee that she would be competing instead of Eva.

Niven then dominated Naomi for the most part of the match. She won the squash match with a Michinoku Driver in the middle of the ring. After the victory, Eva took the mic at ringside and announced herself as the winner, despite not stepping inside the ring.

This marked Niven’s first match/win at the main roster and Marie’s return to WWE after almost four years.

Fans are furious after Naomi vs Eva Marie on WWE RAW

Although it was rumored that Eva is not returning to WWE as a full-time wrestler, WWE Universe was confused after the ill-treatment of Naomi. The former Women’s Champion recently lost her best friend Lana as she got fired.

Fans did not understand why Marie was back with the “eva-lution,” if she will come up with the same shenanigans. On Twitter, the tag #NaomiDeservesBetter trended for a while after the match. Let see some reactions below –

As fans still wonder about why is WWE failing to recognize Naomi’s talent again, Eva took to Twitter to officially announce her in-ring return. She recognized Niven as her “protege,” and noted that Eva Marie hashtag was trending in the US.

It was announced previously that Eva would be back in a non-wrestling role. She could be managing the UK talent in WWE. Interestingly, the announcers never named Niven, so it is likely that she would be getting a new ring name in the US.
