Legendary wrestling figure Jim Cornette is baffled by WWE's reluctance to utilize female wrestler Lacey Evans more frequently. Known for his outspoken opinions, Cornette has had an illustrious career in pro wrestling as a manager, announcer, promoter, booker, and member of WWE's creative team.
Currently, he hosts a popular podcast with Brian Last, which has a large following on podcast networks and a YouTube channel with nearly 350,000 subscribers. Cornette is an admirer of Lacey Evans, a talented WWE wrestler who has been underutilized on television lately.
Despite being on the WWE Smackdown brand, Evans has only appeared in three TV matches this year, along with a spot in the Royal Rumble. This puzzling absence prompted a fan to ask Cornette during a recent episode of Jim Cornette's Drive-Thru podcast why WWE isn't using Evans more often.
Cornette Praises Evans' Abilities
Cornette responded, praising Evans' abilities: "She's great, she's got the size, she looks great. She has the demeanor and the facials. She can talk like a b**ch. What a great heel she's been.
And then she disappeared again. And stop and start, back and forth. I don't know. I don't know what the problem has been; I don't know why they have stopped and started this girl and given her umpteen different personalities. It's the most baffling thing I've ever seen." Cornette believes Evans has immense potential and should be a top choice for WWE's female roster.
He added, "She would be a no-brainer of anybody on the WWE female roster. Past Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley, Lacey Evans is the one I would take next trying to figure out something to do with." As a wrestling legend, Cornette's opinion holds weight in the industry, and his confusion over WWE's underuse of Lacey Evans reflects many fans' concerns.
Evans has repeatedly displayed her talent and versatility, and it remains to be seen whether WWE will capitalize on her potential and give her the spotlight she deserves.
