Lacey Evans is enjoying her life on the main roster, where she’s currently set to be the next title challenger for Bayley’s SmackDown Women’s Championship. After only being a heel since her time in NXT, she has turned face for the first time.
When talking to 101WKQX in Chicago, The Sassy Southern Belle vehemently denied the idea that she was called up to the main roster too soon, saying (H/T WrestleZone):
“Too early? Sweetheart, no such thing. People get what they deserve. I’m a hard worker and they saw that I could bring many things, including class, to the main roster,” Evans explained. “To RAW, to SmackDown, any brand that I’m put in, and that’s exactly what I did. A lot of people may be mad because they’re not in my position, making the money that I’m making, but that has nothing to do with me.”
Evans was pushed right off the bat when she joined the main roster. She spent a few months merely walking out and walking back in, but once WrestleMania 35 season was over, she was the first to challenge the newly-crowned RAW Women’s Champion at the time, Becky Lynch.
Since Lynch had just been established as the face of WWE’s Women’s division, she was never going to lose that feud but it was a great starting point for Evans. In the same interview, she said that she wanted to face one of the champions and doesn’t care which one. It seems as though she’s going to get her wish as she’s expected to face Bayley at TLC for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
