Former WWE star Lacey Evans recently took to her Instagram account and posted a picture:
Evans competed for years in WWE across WWE NXT, Raw, and SmackDown. In August of last year, signs indicated that Evans was set to leave WWE, including her profile being moved to the alumni section of WWE’s website. Evans would leave the promotion and despite the initial belief she had been released, it was confirmed that her contract had instead expired.
Estrella’s contract expiring means that she did not have to face a 90-day non-compete clause and could have worked with any wrestling promotion after her WWE exit. Despite this, Estrella has not competed for or appeared for any other company. On the Insight podcast, Estrella explained why she is in no hurry to get back in the ring.
“I have had a lot [of offers], obviously, reach out. But I did WWE for seven years, and it was never my passion. That was never a secret. It was incredible to see my fellow Sports Entertainers that that is their passion, but I just knew. I went out there and did the best that I could and did my job. But I always looked forward to coming home. My family traveled with me, everywhere I went for the most part. And that was a struggle, right? Because when I got signed with WWE I was a mom and I was a wife. I’ve been with my husband since I was 15.
“It was an incredible opportunity but it was a lot for whenever you compare what your passion is and WWE is very, very difficult. You’re on the road, well over 300 days a year. They want a lot from you. There was always something in the back of my head going ‘What the f**k am I doing?'”
