Lacey Evans recently spoke with Anthony Sulla-Heffinger of Yahoo! Sports for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On her persona being like the old stereotype, making her a perfect foil for Becky Lynch: “It’s a story I want to be able to tell and I want to show that I’m capable of telling it. The story now is there’s this gung-ho female who is all about empowerment and that she’s ‘The Man,’ and then here comes Lacey Evans to interrupt everyone and remind women to get back in the kitchen and remember the feminine side and what women are capable of.”
On how her rivalry with Lynch began: “Initially it started with the walkouts, but at no point did I have any idea what it would lead to. I didn’t find out until the day that I laid hands on Becky that there would be an angle. I didn’t expect anything, I just went to the shows ready to do anything that they needed from me. That’s what they needed and I took it and ran with it.”
On her character and her class and confidence triggering fans: “[My character] transitioned to the ‘Sassy Southern Belle’ because more people can relate to it in this heel-ish, bad guy way,” Evans said. “One of the things that really gets under people’s skin is the confidence and class. I tell the world that I am a prime example of what all women should be. There’s just so much confidence and poise about me that it triggers people. I swear that I’m just perfect.”
