This Week in Wrestling 2021 Week 19

Brian Damage

It’s Saturday and today we have ’This Week in Wrestling’, the 19th of 2021. Today Brian talks about the Eva-Lution that is coming to WWE whether we like it or not and shares all the best wrestling content from this week.

You Say You Want an EVA-Lution?

A couple of weeks ago, it was revealed through a vignette on Monday Night Raw that Eva Marie was returning to the company. This after months of rumors that she was negotiating to return to WWE. Well…..wonder no more as Eva Marie (a lightning rod for both fans hatred and scorn) is on her way back. The last we heard of Eva in or around a wrestling ring was in 2017, when she tested positive for Adderall and was subsequently released. She insisted she had a doctor’s note for using the drug, but missed the deadline to submit the paperwork.

After her release, Eva Marie continued to pursue her modeling and acting careers. Now after roughly four years away from the squared circle, she is back as in a super model-esque gimmick. A gimmick that Vince McMahon really seems to want to get off the ground and do for some time. A few years ago, he tried it with Emma-lina, then seemed to start it with Liv Morgan before scrapping that and more recently did a version of it with Carmella on Smackdown. How will the Eva Marie version be different? Will she wrestle? Will she be a manager of sorts? Does anybody care?

Well, to answer the last question….her return certainly go fans talking. A lot of it negatively, but as an old carny promoter PT Barnum once said…’There’s no such thing as bad publicity‘. That may or may not be true…but it certainly makes WWE look a bit bad. A week or so before the Eva-lution vignette aired, several very talented and in some cases popular women wrestlers were cut loose and released. Names like Mickie James, Chelsea Green and The IIconics were all fired for “budgetary reasons” and then all of a sudden Eva Marie reappears.

Nobody is going to mistake Eva Marie’s wrestling acumen to that of a Mickie James. Granted, Eva did try and worked hard at the craft. She worked with Brian Kendrick to improve her skills…it just never really paid off. Now that she has been gone for a years, I can’t imagine she got any better. In any event, Eva Marie is back in the fold and it definitely had people talking. Will it relate to ratings? I guess we will just have to wait and see if the Eva-lution was worth it.

Now you too can own an authentic WWE trash bag. Pretend you were just released by the company and send yourself your belongings in a trash bag….just like Mickie James! 😉

  1. My response to this Allbotchalution is…. meh…

    I don’t watch Meekmahan-land TV. Why should I care? She was shit in the ring. Bitch doesn’t know a wrist-lock from a wrist-watch let alone know when to kick out or do a simple pin fall. Her “success” involves a conversation with a racist porn star and a bunch of straight-to-demand movies no one gives a fuck about as well as a TV no one bothers to watch on Amazon. I won’t be surprised if they have her become a Women’s champion as it’s what Meekmahan-land deserves. They don’t give a fuck about talent. They just want someone to put a face on their brand. Don’t be surprised if Meekmahan have Becky Lynch job to her. Man, that will piss off everyone but I’ll be like… “I knew it” as I don’t have to waste my time with that bullshit. Thank God for AEW, NWA, ROH, Impact, MLW, New Japan, and every other company that cares about wrestling but most of all, women’s professional wrestling.

  2. ninvoid99, you ruin 99% of the comments on this otherwise thoroughly enjoyable little site. Given the small amount of comments that are posted you turn me off from getting involved in the discussion. If I hear to read out the words “Meekhman – land” again I’m simply going to stop reading this site altogether. How sad, I enjoy the context, but your negativity just kills the enjoyment. If you hate WWE so much (like I do, incidently), going to just not say anything about it and use the same verbage in every single comments section? Not exactly a life or death situation, this site kills a bit of time for me now and again, but I certainly appreciate the efforts of the contributors. Best wishes to everyone else, shame I can’t get involved in some of the interesting chat that goes on around some of the interesting articles to this older, old school fan.
