Lacey Evans has had a banner 2019. She made her WWE in-ring debut at the Royal Rumble and has since even headlined a pay-per-view when she teamed with Baron Corbin against Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch at WWE Extreme Rules.
In a new interview with TV Insider, Evans, who has a military background herself, spoke of her appearance on the reality show Military Makeover, "Families go through a lot physically, mentally, financially. Sometimes they don’t have the support they wish they did. I lost everything myself in a hurricane three years ago. I know what it feels like to be put in situations where you feel you’ve lost everything and given up hope. For her to have to go through one thing after another. Then to have not the community be there for her on such a large scale, I can only imagine it means the world to her. For me to take part in that and show what can happen if people follow their heart and give what they can and do what they can. It was just incredible."
Evans also discussed how hard she’s been working to improve her game in WWE, "The thing is I don’t come from this line of work. I wasn’t a fan growing up. I just take it one day at a time. Between Extreme Rules and when I faced Bayley, I’ve gone so far, even as a technical wrestler and being able to learn from these women every day on all these tours. Just going out and doing match after match every week live. Then to come back, it’s more motivating than ever because I’ve gotten a lot of matches and training under my belt along with women who have been doing this a long time. I love what I do and am excited to keep going.”
