Vince McMahon Wanted To Bring Up NXT Title Holder to the Main Roster

It was reported that it was in fact Triple H’s decision to bring Eva Marie to the main roster and team with the Total Divas. Vince McMahon had wanted to recall Bayley for that spot but Triple H felt that Eva Marie would be a perfect fit for the team as Bayley is part of the “wrestling” division and not the Divas Division. Current creative plans are for Eva Marie to be a heel on the Divas team.
