WWE stifled Lacey Evans with frequent gimmick changes during Vince McMahon’s days as CEO of the company. Lacey Evans was said to be a personal favorite of her former boss, but never managed to find her footing. She’s finally getting back to her basics.
Lacey Evans was part of a six-pack challenge to determine the next challenger to SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. The former U.S. Marine took the pin on what was the Veteran’s Day edition of SmackDown. It appeared that WWE wanted to send a message with the particular spot.
WWE cameras caught up with Lacey Evans backstage after the devastating loss. Cathy Kelley asked the SmackDown star to comment on what could’ve a career-defining moment for her, had she not fell short of seizing the opportunity. Evans had a strong-worded response.
“I have done everything that I’ve needed to do to not only get my foot in this door but get opportunities. The glitz, the glamor, and every time I’ve come up short. Do you what it is because I’ve got complacent in this lifestyle. I got comfortable. And to be honest with you, I have went out of my way to please every body by myself. It’s time to go back to basics.”
We’ll have to wait to see what Triple H has in store for Lacey Evans, whose Southern Belle gimmick drew incredible heat with the fans. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
