Lacey Evans made her first appearance on WWE TV since February 2021 during Friday’s episode of SmackDown.

The comeback queen showed up via a pre-taped promo-style vignette – in it, Lacey said that she had a challenging upbringing but had refused to give in despite those hardships. Then, confirming her babyface status, Evans claimed that such hurdles don’t make her better than anyone else.

The ‘Sassy Southern Belle’ was written off television last year due to maternity leave, but it looks like she’ll launch headfirst into the SmackDown women’s division as a face. That’s interesting, because Lacey has played heel for the majority of her run on WWE’s main roster.

It’s possible that WWE views Evans as a secondary act behind Ronda Rousey. Of course, that’s assuming Rousey wins the SmackDown Women’s belt from Charlotte Flair in the end. If not, then the writers may consider Lacey the ideal candidate to war with Flair next.

The pair have unfinished business from last year anyway. Lacey’s last match saw her team with Peyton Royce against Asuka and Charlotte on the 15 February 2021 edition of Raw.
