In a recent interview with The Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz, former WWE superstar Eva Marie discussed her time on Total Divas, how they had to avoid real names vs. WWE names and more.

“With Total Divas, it’s even a little bit more difficult, because you have your superstars and their actual characters and their names, but those personas are not their actual real given names, so when it comes to family, husbands, wives, it gets dicey to where you know they’re going to have to try their hardest to call you by the name of the actual character.

For me and my family, it was a shift for them, but it wasn’t like they were calling me some other made up name, because Eva Marie is my middle name and they gave me that middle name, so it was just kind of like an easy alternate nickname I guess.”
