Diva-in-training Eva Marie is featured in the September edition of Maxim Magazine which has UFC champion Ronda Rousey on the cover.
This is the first time that Eva Marie has been in Maxim Magazine and let’s just say that it’s a safe bet that it will not be the only time that she will be gracing the pages of this – and other – magazines.
“It was amazing. I truly felt like a definition of a Diva,” Eva Marie said when questioned about her photo shoot. 4 photos made it on the magazine along with her Q&A while 4 other photos made it exclusively on the Maxim.com website.
You can see all eight photos of the red-hot Eva Marie as well as the Q&A from the magazine below.
Q: You look incredible. How was the shoot?
A: It was amazing. I truly felt like the definition of a Diva.
Q: Did you grow up on pro wrestling?
A: My brothers were huge fans, so I watched it in the Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage “Snap into a Slim Jim” era.
Q: What sort of kid grows up to be a WWE Diva?
A: I was a major tomboy. I have three older brothers, so you can only imagine how that was growing up. Plus, I’m Mexican-Italian, so you kind of have to have a little bit of fire.
Q: Do you have any advice for readers who might be interested in breaking into the WWE world?
A: My advice is to never stop. It finally happened because I kept knocking on the door.
Q: How many hours a week do you put in as a Diva?
A: It’s a 24/7 job, baby!
Q: Sounds like it. Do you have a prematch ritual?
A: I keep to myself and zone out a little bit to make sure I’m completely focused. While I’m getting ready, I’ll listen to music, get hyped up, and then, right before, I’ll say a little prayer. Then I’m out.
Q: Does anything funny ever happen inside the ring?
A: All the time! We’re girls, and wardrobe malfunctions happen, but we try to limit that as best we can.
Q: How do you do that?
A: A lot of tape.
Q: WWE has many celebrity guests, from the Muppets to Charlie Sheen. If you could book any celebrity to make a guest appear- ance, who would it be?
A: Tom Hardy. He’s one of my favorite actors right now, and he looks like he could be a badass in the ring.
Q: Were you a fan of reality TV before Total Divas?
A: I’m a fan of the Kardashians.
Q: Would you ever step into the ring with Kim?
A: Bring it on, Kim K.! I would love her to step into the ring.
Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a Diva?
A: There isn’t another option. I had to go until I got this.
