The WWE Universe got closer than ever to the Divas division with the premiere of E!’s “Total Divas” reality show. As the Universe gets an unprecedented peek behind the curtain of WWE’s warrior women, WWE.com sits down for an exclusive pair of interviews with the division’s freshest faces, Eva Marie and JoJo, about what makes them Diva material. First up, the flame-haired beauty who’s taken the WWE Universe (and Jerry Lawler’s face) by storm, Eva Marie.

WWE.com: When and how did you decide you wanted to a WWE Diva?

Eva Marie: I would say it started in September. I went to a Divas search because I live in L.A. It continued from there. The final portion was in-ring training. I fell in love with it the first day. I couldn’t wait to get in the ring, and then from there, I was lucky enough to be picked for developmental. It all turned out pretty good.

WWE.com: Aside from that initial exposure, what made you say, “This is right for me?” Was there anything in particular about it that you did love?

Eva Marie:Being a Diva is something that I’ve wanted to do my entire life. I’m a major tomboy. I did every sport and I played soccer in college. I was a forward striker up top. I scored the goals. Being a Diva, you’re a professional athlete and then you get to entertain. It’s the best of every aspect, all in one. That’s why I fell in love with it.

WWE.com: Out of all the new potential Divas in the Divas Search, how did it come to be that you and Jo-Jo were selected to be part of “Total Divas”?

Eva Marie: I’m not quite sure how we got picked, but we both bring something new. I’m super fiery. I’m a go-getter. No matter what, I’m relentless at what I do so I feel like that shines through. Jo-Jo, she gets the moves a little bit quicker, but I’m a perfectionist. It’s like an, “I’m going to get it until I get it”-type thing. I wasn’t about to walk out of the room without Triple H saying, “I want her.”
