As noted, WWE announced today that Eva Marie has been suspended for 30 days "effective immediately" for her first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. Eva has since turned off comments on her Instagram account.
Eva was scheduled to team with Alexa Bliss and Natalya to face Becky Lynch, Naomi and Carmella at WWE SummerSlam this Sunday. WWE updated their listing for the match to simply read "Carmella, Becky Lynch & Naomi vs. Natalya & Alexa Bliss." They noted in the description of the match that Eva being "out of action for 30 days" has left the match "in a state of uncertainty" and added:
Will Alexa & Natalya power through without the "eternally beguiling" redhead and battle Becky, Carmella & Naomi in a 2-on-3 Handicap Match? Or will the fierce Bliss and the tactical Natalya recruit a partner in time for The Biggest Event of the Summer?
See what ripple effect Eva's absence will have on the rest of the division when SummerSlam gets underway this Sunday night on the award-winning WWE Network at 7 ET/4 PT.
Eva's husband, Jonathan Coyle, took to Twitter to comment on the suspension, stating that it was "unjust" and that people will be "absolutely outraged" when the public finds out why she was suspended. You can check it out below:
