It’s a little more than you expected. Earlier this year at the Royal Rumble, a few names made their WWE main roster debuts in the show’s namesake matches. This might not have seemed like a big deal at the time, but you never know where some of those names could be going in a short amount of time. As it turns out, one of them may be in for one heck of a monster push.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Lacey Evans is in line for a monster push in the near future, possibly even being the Roman Reigns of the women’s division. With Ronda Rousey possibly leaving WWE in the near future, Evans could be taking her spot atop the division, along with Becky Lynch and Charlotte. Evans has only wrestled on TV once this month, a submission loss to Natalya on Main Event.
This could be the next Rousey? Check out Evans’ appearance on Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: I’m not sure about this one, as it seems to be a little far fetched. Evans hasn’t even been on the main roster for a month yet and now she’s going to be one of the top stars in the company? That’s a rather fast promotion and I’m not sure how easily I can see it happening. Evans has a unique quality, but the character isn’t one that seems to be the most versatile in the world.
What do you think of Evans? How big of a star can she be? Let us know in the comments below
