Eve TorresFormer WWE Diva Eve Torres recently talked with WWE.com and revealed what she's been doing since leaving the company, how she got involved with teaching self-defense classes for women, her favorite WWE match and other moments, plus the possibility of a return. Here are some of the highlights:

On what she's been up to since leaving WWE: 

"Well, aside from building a house and planning a wedding and all of that real-life stuff that I’ve finally gotten around to, I’ve been teaching a lot of women’s self-defense classes at the Gracie Academy. Since January, I’ve pretty much been teaching Gracie Women Empowered self-defense full-time, working with women from all walks of life. We’ve got grandmas in there, we’ve got mothers with their daughters, and we’ve had several contracts with the U.S. Air Force.

Also, this summer I actually filmed my first movie. I did a really fun fight scene in [“Scorpion King: The Lost Throne”], which will be coming out next year."

On her favorite WWE match:

"I’d say my Survivor Series [2011] match with Beth Phoenix was my favorite…It was a really emotional match where you go to the back and say, “Oh my gosh.” It was magic out there. Sometimes you experience magic out in the ring. It was a turning point in my career, and I got to share it with one of my greatest friends, Beth. That one always stands out in my mind."

On possibly returning to the WWE:

"I knew that question was coming [laughs]. The truth is, I get asked that question all the time, and I really can say that, right now, I don’t see it happening. But I know myself enough to know that I’m not going to sit here and say that it’s never going to happen. I just don’t know what the next few years will bring. Like I said, if things go as planned in my life, and I start a family or anything like that, then probably not. But who knows? There are people who have families and still come back. Right now I don’t see it coming, but I still have dreams about matches, I will tell you that."
