Lacey Evans had a lot of potential as a heel in WWE, but it will remain untapped as she parted ways with the company earlier this year. It has been some time since her WWE exit and Evans claimed that she doesn’t miss WWE one bit.
Following a brief return, Lacey Evans was absent from WWE television for well over a month. It eventually led to her WWE exit, which ended up disappointing fans who wanted the best for her.
Lacey Evans didn’t have a 90-day non-compete clause as her contract expired, but she hasn’t stepped foot inside the squared circle even now. While speaking on the Insight podcast, Lacey Evans stated that she was never passionate about pro wrestling and tread it as just a job, so she isn’t in any hurry to get back in the ring.
“I have had a lot [of offers], obviously, reach out. But I did WWE for seven years, and it was never my passion. That was never a secret. It was incredible to see my fellow Sports Entertainers that that is their passion, but I just knew. I went out there and did the best that I could and did my job. But I always looked forward to coming home. My family traveled with me, everywhere I went for the most part. And that was a struggle, right? Because when I got signed with WWE I was a mom and I was a wife. I’ve been with my husband since I was 15.
It was an incredible opportunity but it was a lot for whenever you compare what your passion is and WWE is very, very difficult. You’re on the road, well over 300 days a year. They want a lot from you. There was always something in the back of my head going ‘What the f*** am I doing?'”
The former WWE Superstar was then asked if there was a part of her that missed WWE. Lacey Evans boldly claimed that there was not a single part of her that missed her former employer.
“Do you want me to lie? No, there’s not. Some people, they wake up and they put on six-inch stilettos and ten pounds of makeup and their extensions and they go walk the red carpet and they feel amazing. I’m not those people. And it was very difficult for me to put on that front.”
Now no longer affiliated with WWE, Lacey Evans openly acknowledged that the wrestling world was not the perfect fit for her. She expressed her belief that AEW’s schedule aligns better with her needs. Only time will tell what the future holds for Lacey Evans.
