Eve Torres is a sometimes forgotten part of WWE history, despite being one of the greatest WWE Divas of all time.
She was a shining light in the women’s division during some of its darkest times, and managed to win a record three world titles in her short career in the WWE.
Leaving the company in 2013, she just missed out on showing her skills against the top female stars in the Women’s Revolution.
What happened to Eve Torres? Why did she leave WWE? Keep reading this article to find out.
What Happened To Eve Torres?
Eve Torres left WWE in January 2013, ending her six-year run with the company that saw her become the top female wrestler in the company.
She won the WWE Divas Championship a record three times, a feat which was matched by AJ Lee, but has never been beaten.
She left the company in 2013, just before the Royal Rumble that year. Torres then moved to become an instructor for the Gracie Women Empowered self-defence program, teaching women to protect themselves.
She signed for the WWE again in 2014, but in an ambassador role rather than as a wrestler. She has since appeared in a number of legends shows for the WWE, taking part in Table for 3, the WWE Evolution pay per view and at the Raw Reunion Show.
Eve Torres was also included in her first WWE video game in a decade, being included as DLC for WWE 2K23.
Why Did Eve Torres Leave WWE?
Eve Torres revealed in an interview with the WWE that she left the company in order to start a family.
The former WWE Divas Champion got engaged to Rener Gracie the year before her return, and had to make a tough decision in regards to her family.
Torres wanted to plan her wedding and start a family, something which was impossible by keeping the unruly WWE schedule.
Given that she was the top women’s wrestler in the company, Eve Torres would have been on the road for the majority of the time, spending over 250 days away from home.
This was unacceptable, and something that would have undoable for her if she wanted to have children. She was also getting more involved in the Gracie Family business, which took up a lot of her time.
While she was planning to leave for months, Eve Torres had her last WWE match in January 2013. She put over Kaitlyn, handing her the Divas Championship and immediately leaving the company at her peak.
Return To WWE
Eve Torres is not eyeing a WWE return at the moment, because she wants to spend her time raising and having more children.
However, the former Divas champion has spoken about who she would like to face if she did return to the ring, at some point in the future.
Speaking to Ring the Belle, Eve Torres claimed she would love to face Becky Lynch in her WWE return, but only once she “stopped having kids”.
“I am obsessed with the women’s roster right now. There are great talents, but there are so many different characters that I’m just loving. Obviously, I love Becky Lynch. She’s ‘The Man,’ right? So I would love to face her if I came back. If I stopped having kids, then maybe that will happen.”
