WWE released more than a dozen stars due to coronavirus budget cuts recently and various stars from the company have been reacting to the news since then.
Lacey Evans joined this list when she recently had an interview with Sporting News and made some very interesting comments on the matter.
Evans first said that the releases are terrible and she takes it hard because she knows what it’s like to come from no money and a rough upbringing:
It’s terrible. I take it hard because I know what it’s like to come from no money and come from a rough childhood upbringing. I know what rock bottom feels like. I know what that sick feeling in your stomach feels like when you don’t know what you’re going to do. That’s all that I could think about is ‘Man, what are they going to do?’
However, the Sassy Southern Belle claimed that the company is also very supportive and while they do what they have to do, they make sure that everybody has what they need:
This hits them last minute. But I also do know that WWE is very supportive. They do what they have to do, but they make sure that everybody has what they need and is taken care of, and to the point of going forward. But it’s just a crappy feeling. I just can’t imagine being in that position. I also know of going back to the military, of being able to adapt and overcome. You just got to keep pushing. You can’t let life no matter what it is; no matter what cards you’re dealt with, you keep got to keep playing, you got to play your hand, and you got to play to the best of your ability.
