That’s a different way to go. There are a lot of ways to present a wrestler, whether they are new or making their return. The way they are introduced can go a long way in determining how well their career goes and it can be rather difficult to make work. WWE has tried a variety of methods over the years and now their latest idea could be an interesting twist on things.
Over the last five weeks, vignettes have aired featuring Lacey Evans talking about her childhood and time growing up in an abusive family. Evans chronicled her time dealing with an alcoholic father before finally making it to WWE. This week saw Evans appearing in the arena, but only after having made a request that she be applauded and cheered as she deserved. This could suggest that Evans will be a villain again rather than a heroine as had been suggested before her return.
What do you think? Check out Evans’ appearance before the crowd:
Opinion: This is the kind of twist that gets my attention as I’m not sure where the whole thing is going. It gives me a bit of a Kurt Angle vibe, as Angle debuted as an Olympic hero but wound up being completely delusional. Maybe that is where they are going with Evans, which would have me more interested than just going for basic sympathy. It had me wanting to see more and that is better than anything else that has been going on in the story so far.
