Mick Foley isn’t working for the WWE, but he never shies away from giving his opinion on current booking, WWE superstars, matches, and feuds. Not everybody agrees with his thoughts on the WWE. Sometimes, he is ridiculed and even criticized for certain thoughts, especially his latest Facebook post.
There are two parts to Foley’s latest rant. First, he tweeted about this WWE NXT diva and her latest rejuvenation on WWE television. Yes, Foley took the time to praise Evan Marie.

Before part one, Foley got immediate hate from a portion of the WWE Universe about how Marie is “awful” and that she doesn’t deserve to be on television. Without hesitation, Foley got into even more detail about Eva Marie on Facebook.
“And despite the problems she seems to have with some of her #TotalDivas co-stars, fellow wrestlers, and the heat – bordering on nuclear – that she has with some wrestling fans, Eva Marie’s improvement from week to week in recent matches has shown me she has the drive, determination, and that intangible ‘it’ factor necessary to accomplish something special with one of the super-talented ladies of WWE/NXT.
“Eva Marie takes flack for the personal training she receives from Brian Kendrick. As far as I’m concerned, there is no ‘one size fits all’ method of training. Sure, almost all developmental talent undergoes extensive training at the Performance Center in Florida, where Sara Del Ray – one of my personal heroes – has played an invaluable role in dramatically transforming the expectations for what fans have come to expect from#WomensWrestling. But it looks to me like Eva Marie is progressing nicely with the one-on-one work she’s done with Kendrick.
“I’m not saying that Eva will be able to approach some of the masterpieces I’ve seen in the last 16 months – from Natalya/Charlotte to the Fatal 4 Way, to Bank’s statements (see what I did there) with Becky Lynch and Bayley. But within a year, one of those ladies is going to find themselves standing in the ring with the much maligned Eva Marie… and something great will happen.”
Do you agree with the WWE’s Hardcore Legend about Eva Marie? Comparing her from two years ago to now is almost like night and day. With that crucial help from Brian Kendrick, Marie was able to get a nice style in the ring and embrace the hate from the WWE Universe to aid her heel character. Like Foley said, she may not give five-star matches by herself, but with the right opponent, she could be a nice addition to the WWE Divas Division.
