A year ago during this point, Lacey Evans used to be an NXT Superstar who was waiting for a main-roster callup. Cut to one year later, she has been able to establish herself to be The Lady of the WWE.
She started with a heel gimmick but actions have converted her into a babyface, suddenly. WWE has even used her daughter in a context on SmackDown.
This past week on Friday Night SmackDown her daughter Summer played a huge role in her angle against Sasha Banks. In fact, Summer has also been part of building Lacey Evans as the babyface superstar.
She has featured in a video while Evans made history by performing at WWE Crown Jewel in the first-ever Women’s wrestling match.
CBS Sports recently spoke to the Lady Of WWE. She revealed some big goals for 2020. Right now, her sole focus would be on capturing her first championship belt in WWE.
We should note that she received her first feud in the form of a title opportunity over on Monday Night RAW against Becky Lynch. She could not win the belt but did show her resiliency who could become a future champion, for sure.
Here are her comments on future goals in 2020, (courtesy ringsidenews.com)
“Probably to become champ and get more opportunities to use my platform to show people what you’re capable of, no matter how hard your life is.”
I know sometimes things hurt really bad and I know there are a lot of bad things that are happening, and you feel so down and out on yourself. But trust me when I tell you, coming from where I come from and what I’ve been through, you are capable of anything.”
The babyface turn for Lacey Evans could actually be beneficial for her career as WWE could focus on her real-life aspects. She is a mother who can afford to go through a rigorous schedule in WWE.
Plus, she comes from a military background which is a unique feature that perhaps no woman in the company’s history has done in the past.
With that being said, we can definitely say a big push will be waiting for her in a month to come as we ring in the New Year. She is expected to receive a title match at Royal Rumble 2020 over the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Bayley.
