Eve Says There’s Talk Of Doing Another Diva Search; Asked About Kelly Kelly & Beth Phoenix Leaving WWE

WithLeather.com has a new Q&A online with WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres. Below is an excerpt:

With Leather: Why did the WWE discontinue the Diva Search after you won? Was it because they knew they struck gold with you?

Eve Torres: Actually, there are a lot of rumors that they’re going to do another Diva Search, and I’m hoping that there is one. The WWE has found incredible female talent through the Diva Search, even it’s the women who are kind of casual fans and just aren’t sure if they can commit all the way or the women who are intimidated about the approach and the FCW. Hopefully we do another one because it would be great to see more women coming into the division.

With Leather: With Kelly Kelly gone and Beth Phoenix soon departing the WWE, how do you see the landscape of the Divas changing? Can we expect to see more of the remaining Divas or is there some young talent that will be coming in?

Eve Torres: It’s hard to say, because we never really know what they’re thinking. As much as people think we really know what’s going on, we really don’t. On Mondays at 4 PM, half the time I have no idea what’s going on. Right now, we have a great group of girls – hungry girls – who all want to contribute to the Diva division. That’s what I really care about. Obviously, I’m delighted that I’m part of an interesting storyline, but whatever I can do to help this division and get it back on top is just something that I – and all of the other girls – am willing to do, whether that means helping new talent that comes up or re-polishing the talent that already exists on the roster.

    I can't believe Beth Phoenix is leaving soon! Does anybody know why?

    • jdl

      I've heard it's a mix of burn out, Edge going in for surgery and annoyance with her spot in the company constantly changing. She's expected back sooner or later.

    • Kanewty

      her contract is due, and she wants time off to help her boyfriend(Edge) recover from his upcoming neck surgery. Once hes on the mend and better from that, wouldnt be shocked to see her back at all…

      • Kevin

        I'm so confused! The last I heard, Beth Phoenix was moved from Smackdown to Raw to be with her boyfriend CM Punk. Now she's with Edge? Does he steal everybody else's girlfriends all the time? If I remember right, he took Lita from Matt Hardy years ago. Can't he get his own girl?

      TNA TNA TNA! And because the divas in wwe is a sad chapter in wwe history

    • Fernando

      IMO, there are two probable reasons: one, she doesn't like how she's being used and wants out; two, her boyfriend Adam Copeland (aka Edge) is having neck surgery soon and she wants to be close to him.

      • Ken

        Fernando, friend, it's enough to just say Edge. We all know his real name. Writing it then putting Edge in brackets doesn't make you look cool and smart, it makes you look like a fool.
        I'm not trying to be insulting here, I'm just saying, so you know for future reference. Consider it a public service.
        You're welcome.

        • Kevin

          Ken, you imbecilic buffoon, Fernando was neither attempting to appear intelligent nor making an effort to be first-rate. He was merely stating the truth: that Adam Copeland was undergoing surgery on his neck. By putting Edge in parenthesis (and that IS what they are called, not brackets), he was reminding us that Adam Copeland had played that character on television. I realize that the majority of wrestling enthusiasts already have this information stored in their consciousness. The cogency Fernando was attempting to place into your burly cranium is Adam Copeland, not Edge, is receiving said surgery.

          You're Welcome.

    • Matthew

      It’s to care for we real life boyfriend, Edge who is scheduled to have neck surgery.

      Nice Q&A from Eve, I personally would live to see another Diva search, the search has produced a lot of good talent over the years and could really help shape the division that is currently depleting. Hopefully, the WWE will soon allow Naomi, Cameron and Paige to wrestle on the main roster.

  • David F.

    She has been with WWE for 6 years and thats a long time for a Diva. She is also dating Edge and wants to spend more time with him probably

  • Steve

    Look how she’s been booked the last 3 years…that’s a good enough reason to leave

  • Yousef

    Beth is dating Edge now? And isn’t Punk dating Lita now? They swapped broads, ha

  • Andrew Ace

    Why is everyone talking about Beth when this article is about the beautiful and best diva in WWE the champ Eve.

    • Renate

      Eve is the best Diva in the WWE? Are you kidding me? Natalya ring a bell to you? Tamina ring a bell? Eve is NOT the best… even Kaitlyn is better than her..

      • Andrew Ace

        Ok you buggin right now. Natalya is the best in the ring but when I said Eve is the best diva. I meant as in overall character. She’s a great heel. Natalya doesn’t have the charisma. And what were you thinking when you said Kaitlyn is better she’s HORRIBLE in the ring

  • neilthaheel

    as for tha UGLAzon beth, it's good riddance to bad TRASH , , , ooh OUI

    SURE WISH MARYSE & thA BELLLA twins WOULD RETURN
