The miracle of life!
Lacey Evans had a lot more in the cards than the birth of her second child. Fightful Select reported recently that until her pregnancy was revealed, Evans was actually slated to beat Asuka for the WWE Raw Women's Championship.
There were big plans for Lacey Evans before her pregnancy. WWE sources indicated to Fightful that the plan was for her to defeat Asuka at WWE Elimination Chamber for the WWE Raw Women's Title.Evans would have then continued her feud with Charlotte Flair, that was planned to continue through at least WrestleMania. I believe Ric Flair has also noted there were tentative plans for him to get physical in the angle, but he couldn't get cleared to do it. Those that we've spoken to in WWE said those were more ambitious plans from Flair himself than their own. The angle has been dropped altogether with no imminent plans to resume it as of this week.
Evans has proudly had her daughter ringside for countless WWE events, dating back to her NXT days. We congratulate her and her husband on the pregnancy.
