Former WWE Star Lacey Evans Discusses Departure From Company; Feels AEW Schedule Is A Better Fit

Lacey Evans recently was a guest on the “Road Trip After Hours” podcast with Teddy Long and Mac Davis for an interview covering all things pro wrestling, including her recent WWE release which she notes happened at her request. She also talks about the AEW schedule likely being a better fit for her:

On her decision to leave WWE: “It wasn’t a bit much as far as I couldn’t do it. It was a bit much as far as it wasn’t for me. I lasted seven years in WWE, I invested and made a lot of money. I’m a business owner, I own investment properties, I really sunk a lot of good money into making sure I’m squared away. My priorities, where my priorities in comparison to a lot of professional wrestlers are way different, night and day. I think I was blessed to start that business venture with a full-blown awesome husband and relationship. I’ve already had a baby. I was a business owner, making six figures, before I even joined. I took a pay cut to be able to try and use the platform to make a difference for my community. It was a lot in that regard because my priorities and idea in life was not running on red carpets and sniffing people’s asses for opportunities. I’m not cut out for that, unfortunately.”

On how the AEW schedule might be better suited for her: “Absolutely. I’m mean as hell. I’m one mean son of a gun. That was probably my fault, at requesting my release, there are no hard feelings at WWE, it’s great. That lifestyle is for people that, when they hold that title above their head, that’s what makes them feel significant or feel like they’ve accomplished something. Me being able to make my kids food or cook my old man, that to me is worth all the weight in gold.”
