Backstage Update On Plans For The WWE NXT Divas Division, Eva Marie's Push Slowed Down?, More

We noted recently that WWE officials were planning on having NXT Women's Champion Bayley feud with Dana Brooke and Eva Marie. A title change with Eva has been speculated as officials want to get the belt on her. The Wrestling Observer reports that plans have now changed and an Eva title reign likely won't be happening so soon.


There was a call made this week for them to slow down on pushing Eva and focus more on building Dana and Asuka for Bayley to feud with after her 30-minute Ironwoman Match against Sasha Banks at "Takeover: Respect" next month.

WWE is hopeful that Asuka vs. Bayley can continue the trend of great NXT Women's Title matches. They also have hope that the other Divas they want to be the stars of the division – Dana, Eva and Alexa Bliss – can improve to where they can also have strong matches with Bayley.
