WWE: Watch Eva Marie Win Over NXT Crowd With New Ring Skills
Eva Marie has said she "over the moon" with her in-ring return on NXT last night, following a few months away from the squared circle to hone her grappling skills.
Thanking NXT General Manager William Regal for making her match against Cassie McIntosh, Eva also hailed Brian Kendrick for the intensive training regime he put together for the flame-haired beauty.
The 30-year-old also threw down the gauntlet to the NXT Women's champion, warning Sasha Banks she was coming for her belt after her win over NXT newbie Cassie.
"Honestly, this is just the beginning for #AllRedEverything because it is balls to the wall, I'm going for that title. So, Sasha Banks - watch out," she said.
Words cannot fully express how I am feeling right now. To the #NXT crowd and entire #WWE Universe, All I can say is thank you, from the bottom of my heart thank you. Performing at my very best for the WWE Universe has been my goal since the day I joined WWE. You guys are the best fans in the world and deserve the best in entertainment. It has been a long and bumpy road for me to work towards becoming the Diva you deserve, and I still have a long way to go. However, because of how you guys have supported and encouraged me, for the first time in my career I truly feel like a WWE Diva. Thank you. I promise I will continue to give it my all and get better for you, this is just the beginning. #RedStormRising #AllRedEverything #BettaThanEva #LetsWork/a>
What do you make to Eva Marie's new approach? Hall of Famer Mick Foley certainly seemed to be impressed.

Having won over a considerable part of the formerly hostile live NXT audience, it seems as if Eva could play a considerable role in the highly-acclaimed NXT Women's division for a good while to come...
