Lacey Evans Wants Evolution 2 Event To Focus On Mothers In Wrestling

It might be time for a second Evolution event.

A couple of years ago, we saw the first ever WWE Evolution premium live event. The event featured strictly women’s roster competitors, with notable matches featuring Becky Lynch and Charlotte as well as Nikki Bella and Ronda Rousey squaring off in the title matches.

Lacey Evans has now called for a repeat of the event. Evans is currently scheduled to compete in the women’s Money In The Bank ladder match this Saturday.

Speaking on The Ten Count with NBC Sports Boston, Evans revealed why she thinks the event should occur a second time. 

“I think it’s always necessary. Why not? What would be the hurt of it? I don’t think there’d be any hurt of it,” she said. “I think that all the moms out there now that are especially wrestling — You’ve got Ronda Rousey, you’ve got Becky Lynch, you’ve got The Bellas, you’ve got Lacey Evans, you’ve got Bianca Belair, you’ve got Tamina, you’ve got all these badass women that are now how about let’s do another one and have all our babies ringside watching their mamas. Then, behind that, have all the girls in the world that want to be sports entertainers behind the babies.

“That dream of, not becoming pro wrestlers, but just having freakin’ careers and having to juggle what we juggle and the fact that we get to show the world what mommies are capable of, that we can still chase our dreams and these careers, and be badass wives, and moms and, and work hard is cool,” she added. “So I’m down for any time we can highlight the strengths of a woman. Let’s do it, especially with having two girls myself.”
