It feels as if WWE is trying to make Lacey Evans a heel by having her say “You have to cheer for me because both my father and grandfather died of drug overdoses.” I don’t know how I feel about this.
I think it would be easy to paint her as this babyface who overcome adversity. But instead, it’s like they’re painting her as this entitled asshole who thinks she deserves praise and admiration, with things being said such as “Lacey Evans demands you give her a round of applause.” It’s such a weird character.
It’s like they’re trying to do the Kurt Angle 1999 thing where she’s a delusional heel, but I don’t wanna boo her. Telling the audience that both her dad and grandfather died of drug overdoses makes me want to cheer her.
