In an update on WWE announcing that Eva Marie had been suspended for 30 days for her first WWE Wellness Policy violation, Eva released a statement to Pro Wrestling Sheet, noting that she was suspended by the company on a technicality, but will take her punishment in stride and respect the WWE’s decision.

The statement reads, “I am disappointed that this suspension has occurred, yet understand and respect that WWE upholds their Wellness Policy to the letter and won’t compromise on its integrity. I violated the policy by not turning in portions of required paperwork in the time frame WWE medical deemed timely. I look forward to my return! Thank you for your support.”
