It’s another career. Wrestlers have had hit and miss success with acting. Every now and then you see someone become a star, but those are few and far between. What you might see more of is a wrestler having some minor success while still wrestling at the same time. That seemed to be the case with a current star, but then things took quite the turn for both sides.

Eva Marie was one of the 18 wrestlers released from WWE earlier this week. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, this was partially due to her taking time off to do an acting project not long after she returned. Marie’s age (37 years old), lack of in-ring abilities and lack of getting over with the audience combined with her hiatus led to WWE releasing her. This was Marie’s second run with WWE, after she worked for the company from 2013-2016.

Marie certainly tried when she came back. Check out some of her time in the ring:

Opinion: This does make sense, as it wasn’t like Marie was exactly a top star on Monday Night Raw. She was close to a wrestling manager at times and that is not exactly worth a top spot on the roster. Maybe she would fit in better as an actress, but this might be the right way to go for everyone. This seems like WWE writing it off as a failed experiment, though at least Marie got another chance.

What did you think of Marie’s return? How could she have worked in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
