WWE Diva Eve Torres spoke with HispanicBusiness.com this week. Here are some highlights:

HispanicBusiness.com: What gets you excited about wrestling, and having to “bring it” at each match?

Eve Torres: Hearing the people and the crowd is the number one drive for every match. If I am not making someone jump out of their chair, or hold their breath, or hate me, or cheer me, then I am not doing my job. Reactions — that’s what drives me to take risks in every match.

HispanicBusiness.com: Have you ever experienced any discrimination for being a female or Latina? Please explain.

Eve Torres: Absolutely. I have been in a “man’s” world as long as I can remember. I was an engineering major in college, I am a sports entertainer in the WWE, and I teach self-defense. I can’t tell you the number of times I have been underestimated, objectified or deprived of fair credit for my accomplishments based on my gender or ethnicity. We can either be discouraged by these societal limitations, or we can overcome them and strengthen our will to succeed.

HispanicBusiness.com: What’s next for you?

Eve Torres: Besides continuing to take WWE by storm and starring in a blockbuster action flick, my number-one priority is using this platform to influence others in a positive way. I am a head instructor of the Gracie Women Empowered self-defense program, and I am committed to helping other women realize their fullest potential through physical and psychological empowerment. I know the secrets, and I won’t stop until women everywhere know them too
