One big thing

Former WWE star Lacey Evans says the company refused to release her from her contract, forcing her to wait until it expired in August 2023.

Why it matters

Evans’ revelation sheds light on WWE’s contract practices and the challenges wrestlers face when trying to leave the company. It also highlights the shift in creative direction following Vince McMahon’s departure and Triple H’s takeover.

Key details

• Evans, real name Macey Estrella-Kadlec, spent seven years with WWE, signing in 2016.
• She experienced several start-and-stop pushes and character overhauls during her tenure.
• Her prominence diminished after Triple H took over creative from Vince McMahon.

What they’re saying

Evans told Carlo Perruzza:

• “They wouldn’t even let me out of my contract, which was fine. You sign a contract; you give ’em your word. So I had to wait until it ran out.”
• “I loved wrestling; don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t my passion. But I loved the hard-hitting action.”

Life after WWE

Business ventures

• Invested in properties using earnings from WWE
• Runs a construction company with her husband

Family focus

• Homeschools her children

Future in wrestling

“If there’s a company out there that will bring me in to kick ass and get my ass kicked, that’s great. But right now, we are focused on a lot.”
