Eve Addresses WrestleMania Heel Turn, Garcia Thanks Fans, More
– Sunday night at WrestleMania XXVIII, Eve accompanied Zack Ryder to the ring for the match between Team Johnny and Team Teddy. Eve subsequently distracted Ryder, costing him and Team Teddy the bout. She added further insult to injury after the match by hitting Ryder below the belt, thus completely her heel turn. Eve explained the next night on Raw that she used Ryder to get her “WrestleMania moment.” She added further on Twitter, “I feel on top of the world right now and don’t feel the need to explain myself to anyone.”
She also responded to The Miz taking credit for Team Johnny’s victory at WrestleMania XXVIII, writing, “Your welcome.” Eve wrote minutes later, “So sorry… my uneducated assistant wrote that last tweet for me. Last time I let that happen. *You’re welcome!*”
