Gleed’s Pro Wrestling Podcast Review: Chris Jericho talks to former WWE Diva Eve Torres-Gracie on Vince McMahon, Michael Hayes, Diva Search, and more
2014-07-14 10:00:31


By Haydn Gleed

Talk Is Jericho with Eve Torres-Gracie
Host: Chris Jericho
Release date: July 11, 2014
Available at PodcastOne.com

On why she thinks she was chosen for WWE's Diva Search: "I felt like that year they were looking for something different, and I could tell when it came down to me and the top eight we were all very much athletic but kind of girl next door."

On dressing room etiquette and Michael Hayes: "I remember Michael Hayes coming up to me, I think it was something like I was sitting down and Mark Henry didn't have a seat. Michael Hayes was like, come here I need to talk to you. Basically, he's like, you are not in the Diva Search anymore, you work for us now. I heard you are walking round here thinking you are all that, that's not going get down over here. I need you to be nice to everybody, to shake everybody's hand to show some respect."

On what Fit Finlay meant to the Diva's division: "Fit is the Diva's division. He was the one who believed in us, even when we didn't believe in ourselves. 'I'd be like I don't know,' and he's like, 'nope, you can do it.' He would put together these great matches that we had a lot of fun with, and he was very good at collaborating what we could and couldn't do, and what we were capable of and what we weren't"

Why she preferred being a heel: "Being heel was way better, especially as a women. Unfortunately, the female babyfaces get nothing in WWE in my opinion."

Her opinion on Vince McMahon: "I always loved Vince. I think Vince always appreciated me and I felt like he respected me, which was really great. Obviously, I've seen the other side of Vince with other people, which I never wanted to go there, so Im glad I never experienced that side of him. Even to the day I had to ask for my release and have my last match, he was so respectful and was like thank you for everything you've done, and the door will always be open."

Eve and Jericho also discussed other topics including what she's currently up to with her women's only school, television roles, her start as an L.A. Clippers cheerleader, what led her on the path to the WWE, the grind of the road, and why she chose to leave WWE.

Gleed's Ramblings: This was a one-hour interview that flew by and that was mostly thanks to the obvious chemistry between Jericho and Torres. They talked about their history together touring the world as part of WWE and shared some fun stories.

I did feel that Eve was holding back somewhat. The perfect example is when she started talking about Big Show but pulled back from ripping into him despite the tone in her voice betraying her somewhat.

This is an episode that I wouldn't go out of your way to listen to, but if you are on a long car journey at some point, and you want to find out what the former WWE Diva's champion is up to, this is the podcast for you.
