Lacey Evans discusses the nerves and stress of being in WWE.
Lacey Evans spent five years as a military police officer with the Special Reaction Team before entering the world of professional wrestling. While some may get stressed out having to go in front of an audience of thousands in the arena and millions watching at home, Evans' says the Marine Corps prepared her to deal with that stress.
“It takes a lot of nerves to be a sports entertainer and to be in front of those big crowds. The military and the Marine Corps prepared me to be numb to the stress,” Evans told the Journal Star.
Right now, Evans is being used as an interrupter, walking out at random moments on Raw and SmackDown before quickly returning to the backstage area. But she did make her WWE in-ring debut this past January in the Women's Royal Rumble.
“It was nerve wracking. I was the first one out, and even had a promo. It was so much fun. It had a huge crowd, and what an experience.”
Evans lasted nearly 30 minutes in the Royal Rumble, scoring two eliminations before being eliminated by Charlotte Flair. Evans continues to wrestle at live events but has not competed on Raw or SmackDown.
