WWE has released and furloughed many wrestlers and talent over the past few weeks
Lacey Evans appeared on The Walkway Fight Club podcast and gave her reaction to the releases. She related to the feeling of not knowing what you’re going to do.
“It’s terrible. I take it hard because I know what it’s like to come from no money and come from a rough childhood upbringing,” Evans said. “I know what rock bottom feels like. I know what that sick feeling in your stomach feels like when you don’t know what you’re going to do. That’s all that I could think about is ‘man, what are they going to do?'”
Evans talked about how supportive WWE is saying that they make sure that everyone has what they need and are taken care of. She noted that it still doesn’t ease the pain, but she says that is why she stays prepared especially for her daughter while wishing the best for those released.
“This hits them last minute,” Evans said. “But I also do know that WWE is very supportive. They do what they have to do, but they make sure that everybody has what they need and is taken care of, and to the point of going forward. But it’s just a crappy feeling. I just can’t imagine being in that position. I also know of going back to the military, of being able to adapt and overcome. You just got to keep pushing. You can’t let life no matter what it is; no matter what cards you’re dealt with, you keep got to keep playing, you got to play your hand, and you got to play to the best of your ability. I mean, it’s hard.
“Like I said, me being a mother, I’ve got to get up the next day. I’ve got to pour my cup of coffee and I got to keep on pushing. It reminds me to be prepared and not only to be prepared myself but to prepare my child because you never know. You can’t count your chickens before they hatch. You got to save for a rainy day. A lot of emotions and thoughts come through. I just keep them all in my prayers and wish them the best and then do the best that I can to continue to keep pushing and be good at my job and continue to learn and do the best that I can in there.”
