She's not well-liked...
Eva Marie made her wrestling debut on RAW as she, JoJo and Natalya defeated Alicia Fox, Aksana and Rosa Mendes. Eva Marie's performance and inexperience were criticized online after the show. Before that match, she had only wrestled before a live crowd once, a non-televised tag team match at Summerslam Axxess in August. This is the reaction that WWE wanted as they purposely set her up to fail. WWE officials wanted to knock her down as they felt she had an undeserved ego and doesn't realize how much she needs to learn. They let her fail on WWE TV in order to make her humble.
It was previously reported that the diva was "passionately hated" by some of her co-workers. This isn't the first time she had a prank pulled on her. In a segment filmed at a spring RAW show for the August 4 episode of Total Divas, she was made to believe that she did something wrong and Stephanie McMahon wanted to confront her over it. In the episode, the meeting was shown as her lying about her background to audition to be Fandango's dancer (which was a fake story created for the show). McMahon threatened to fire her if she embarrassed the company again with her behavior. Eva Marie cried during the meeting and had no idea it was set up as a prank or that McMahon was acting in character.
